Top Ten Best Hackers of The World

Top Ten Best Hackers of The World

The Ten Biggest Legends of the Hacker Universe:

The culture started from the, The hackers culture. Now I am an ethical hacker and many more people like me either interested in or wanted to be hacker, DO you know why is that so? Answer is these guys made term hacking popular worldwide. I know they were bad boys, but as an ethical hacker I salute their intelligence, their dedication, and everything they did.

For the users of this blog I am specially posting the names of top 10 hackers of the world who sometime in the past really rocked the news of the world.

Kevin Mitnick: Known worldwide as the “most famous hacker” and for having been the first to serve a prison sentence for infiltrating computer systems. He started dabbling when he was a minor, using the practice known as phone phreaking. Although he has never worked in programming, Mitnick is totally convinced that you can cause severe damage with a telephone and some calls. These days, totally distanced from his old hobbies and after passing many years behind bars, he works as a security consultant for multinational companies through his company “Mitnick Security.”

Gary McKinnon: This 41-year-old Scotsman, also known as Solo, is the perpetrator of what’s considered the biggest hack in the history of computer science – into a military system. Not satisfied with this, in the years 2001 and 2002, he made a mockery of the information security of NASA itself and the Pentagon. Currently he is at liberty awarding his extradition to the U.S. and prohibited access to a computer with Internet connection.

Vladimir Levin: This Russian biochemist and mathematician was accused of having committed one of the biggest bank robberies of all times by means of the cracking technique. From Saint Petersburg, Levin managed to transfer funds estimated at approximately 10 million dollars from Citibank in New York to accounts he had opened in distant parts of the world. He was arrested by INTERPOL in 1995 at Heathrow airport (England). Although he managed to rob more than 10 million dollars, he was only sentenced to three years in prison. Currently he is free.

Kevin Poulsen: Today he may be a journalist and collaborates with authorities to track paedophiles on the Internet, but Poulsen has a dark past as a cracker and phreaker. The event that brought him the most notoriety was taking over Los Angeles phone lines in 1990. A radio station was offering a Porsche as a prize for whoever managed to be caller number 102. It goes without saying that Poulsen was the winner of the contest.

Timothy Lloyd: In 1996, information services company Omega, provider of NASA and the United States Navy, suffered losses of around 10 million dollars. And it was none other than Tim Lloyd, an x-employee fired some weeks earlier, who was the cause of this financial disaster. Lloyd left a virtually activated information bomb in the company’s codes, which finally detonated July 31 of that same year.

Robert Morris: Son of one of the forerunners in the creation of the virus, in 1988 Morris managed to infect no fewer than 6,000 computers connected to the ArpaNet network (one of the precursors to the internet) He did it from the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and for his criminal activities he earned a four year prison sentence, which was finally reduced to community service.

David Smith: Not all hackers can boast of creating the virus that spread the fastest to computers the width and breadth of the globe – David Smith can. In 1999, the father of the Melissa virus managed to infect and crash 100,000 email accounts with his malicious creation. Smith, who was thirty years old at the time, was sentenced and freed on bail.

MafiaBoy: In February of 2000, many of the most important online companies in the US, such as eBay, Yahoo and Amazon, suffered a technical glitch called Denial of Service, which caused a total of 1700 million dollars in losses. But did these sites know that the perpetrator of the attack was a 16 year-old Canadian who responded to the alias MafiaBoy? Surely not, although it didn’t take them long to find out, thanks to his bragging about his bad deed to his classmates at school.

Masters of Deception (MoD): MoD was a New York cyber-gang that reached its apogee in the early 90s. Under the cover of different aliases, its biggest attacks involved taking over telephone lines and centres of the Internet, then still in its infancy. During this time McD starred in the historic “battles of the hackers,” along with other groups like the Legion of Doom (LoD), as they sought to destroy each other until the computers couldn’t take it anymore.

Richard Stallman: Since the early 80s when he was a hacker specializing in artificial intelligence, this hippie-looking New Yorker has been one of the most active militants in favor of free software. At MIT he firmly opposed the privatization of the software used by the institute’s laboratory, so much so they he created what today is known as GNU and the concept of CopyLeft. Popular systems like Linux utilize the GNU mode and Stallman is currently one of the gurus of software democratization.

  1. I need help of some hacker to get information of one unsolicited mail that we have received.

    It is ruining my life and job 🙁


  2. Don’t waste your time please continue your study. You will have more time after your 10th. Connect with me then, I will tell you some tricks. Not now, ok?

  3. hackers are clever-OK, I get that, BUT why do hackers hacked into harmless ordinary people’s email accounts, IS’NT THAT STUPIOD, A WASTE OF TIME?????????????Why not hack into spies’s bank accounts, and publish the bank accounts statements, and where these spies got their money from? you could create a new ‘JAMES BOND HACKER’!

  4. I’m done reading u guys comments. i wanna be hacker, plz guide me, learn this read that. its all bull shit. Hacking comes from the inside. there are some people who are born to be hackers. they become the real hackers. guys like us only study books to be like them.

    • Mr. Rehman, it’s not that difficult to hack a WiFi password. However, be informed that this is not legal, though not a serious crime. Well, lemme tell you how to do this.
      Ahmed, all you need to do is learn basic Linux and install Backtrack 5 OS in you system, preferably on a Virtual Machine. Then, open a new kernel and type these commands – airmon -ng start wlan0 bssid
      – airodump -ng mon0 wpa
      – airodump -ng -c3 -w(filename) –bssid(bssid)mon0
      file name and bssid mentioned in brackets needs to be copied from the results which the above written commands will generate. To do this you will need basic knowledge about Linux and it’s commands.
      after this use the command
      airoplay -ng -10 -a(bssid)mon0

      Now, open home folder and find the file with .cpa extension
      use command
      – aircrack -ng(file directory)
      File directory will be the same file with .cpa extension so copy and paste the same file over there.
      Again go to home directory find again a file generated with .txt extension.
      Now use command
      aircrack –ng –w(directory – the .txt extension file) (Handshake directory – .cap extension file)
      This should fetch you the password.

  5. step 1 learn basic networking and how tcp/ip protocols works because hacking begins with basic you must have a good knowledge of windows server and UNIX like OS(learn both server side and client side operating systems in UNIX like OS and windows platform OS) step 2=after completing step 1 buy books like unofficial guide to ethical hacking or hacking for dummies download all the tools mentioned in those books implement all techniques and tools mentioned on those books on on your other computer or networks that you own hacking other network that you dosent own is illegal

  14. hi
    A-ddos – Kernel solution to prevent ddos attack a-ddos is a kernel patch in order to prevent DDos attack at the low-hardware-level. It works well on a netbridge. DDos is short for distributed denial-of-service,it becomes a serious threat nowadays. There hasn’t been a perfect solution yet. a-ddos uses 512M(128M in current version) memory to keep tracks of every ipv4 address and a kernel-level timmer to record connections pre-second. While under attack, only the available IPs are allowed to be connected to the server. Highlighted features Fast In order to determine every connection, only one memory-access is needed. Stable The implementation is simple and fast, while under syn-flood attack a-ddos takes less than 10% cpu time to handle. Flexible It’s easy to extend the memory usage,…

    • Hacking is not about distroying or helping its about information, to me its a way of life. read what they tell you you cant chande what they say you cant and take as many forb 500s down with you when you go, not if but when we all burn out leave a story and check in every so often,
      best wishes

  31. Pliz rainforestcoder! Don’t call ankit fadia a hacker! He sucks, he is a fake!! The book that you have mentioned is nothing but a collection of hacking tutorials found on the net! He is all show and no go!! He can be a good marketing consultant though, going by the way he has marketed himself and how he manages to get all the undeserved hype from the media!!

  32. The people missing on here are the ones who didn’t get caught or didn’t have a big mouth. Some years back a friend took me to meet a guy going by the name of Illuminati_hacker. Turns out that he was creator of the very first bot network. His house is like a castle with porsches and ferraris parked outside and his rooms are wall to wall silicon. So don’t listen to people who say these people above are the worlds greatest hackers cos the worlds greatest hackers are rich beyond belief. You are not smart hackers to play only with silicon. You need to make the money too.

  33.

  37. Very true satish, da best hackers in da world are unknown to us because they know how to not get caught, and some just went to far and got themselves caught. I give most respect to Gary Mckinnon and he’s been hacking Nasa and the pentagon for years without anyone knowing and he weren’t gona caught if it wasn’t for stupid incident.

  38. we see the dark side …. but these hacking scholars have an extraordinary skill … taking hacking in reverse …. its very much helpfull creating a hack proof application …. as done by the great MR. Kevin Mitnick … he owns a security center ….

  40. things like bypassing ip security,email,personal web profiles,phone phreaking are cool as an idea but all there original techniques don’t work and mojarity of people who invented the offense are now on defense.
    lol/know everything so to want to hack is silly n which there is little you can do which wouldn’t get you into trouble/not fun
    so its like doing homework in which is boring/pointless

  41. This world is abound of warriors . i m inborn destructive. i will be the world best cracker n chase all these hackers. well, my intention not chase nor to compete with anybody. so keep distance. i will be the world best cracker its my bet n challenge. i m son of evil.
