   Whenever we hear the term computer hacker, the image of people using black market software to steal personal information comes to mind. There is another side to hacking2, though. White hat hackers, as they are known, are out to prove that computer hacking does have a good side after all.

每當我們聽到電腦駭客這個名稱時,便會立刻浮現人們利用黑市的電腦軟體來竊取個人資料這樣的印象。侵入他人電腦系統其實還有另外一面。人們所稱的白帽駭客便試圖證明電腦入侵畢竟還是有好的一面。

  What does a white hat hacker spend his or her day doing? The same thing any other computer hacker doestrying to gain access3 to a system or network they are not supposed to get into. There is one major difference, however. White hat hackers are actually on the payroll4 of companies that pay them to show the weaknesses in their internal network security. This can include anything from searching through user email accounts for passwords to going through desktop trash bins for sensitive files.

  白帽駭客的一天是怎麼度過的呢?他們和任何其他的電腦駭客都會做同一件事情 —— 就是試圖侵入他們不該進入的系統或電腦網路。然而,其中有一個很大的差異。白帽駭客其實是企業給薪雇用來找出他們內部電腦網路保全的弱點。這可以涵蓋從搜尋用戶電子郵件帳號找出密碼,到在電腦桌面的資源回收桶裡找出敏感的檔案。

  Some of the best white hat hackers today were formerly on the wrong side of the law. Luckily for them, their skills were in high demand from companies and even governments that want to make sure their net security is not full of holes. What does it take to become a white hat hacker? Full knowledge of computer coding5 language, as well as a highly analytic6 mind, is a big advantage. For computer nerds7, there is no more challenging or rewarding8 job than being a white hat hacker.

  當今最厲害的白帽駭客中,有一些人以前做過犯法的事情。對他們而言幸運的是,企業界以及甚至是政府都很需要他們的技能,因為他們想要確保他們的網路安全沒有充滿漏洞。要怎樣才能成為一個白帽駭客呢?擁有電腦編碼語言的豐富知識以及十分善於分析的頭腦會是一大優勢。對電腦迷來說,沒有什麼比成為白帽駭客更有挑戰性或更值得做的工作了。
