A Greyhat Hacker is a mysterious digital renegade. They’re not quite heroes, but not total villains either – think of them as the Robin Hoods of the cyber world.
These enigmatic figures might use sneaky tactics to uncover a vulnerability but then give the targeted organization a heads-up. Or, they might find an exploit and sell their knowledge to governments, but only for a pretty penny. The key difference between them and those pesky Blackhat Hackers? Greyhats don’t use or sell their findings for criminal gain. So in the ever-changing realm of cybersecurity, these digital vigilantes keep everyone on their toes!
