They typically target individual PCs, bank systems, and organizations because these entities possess valuable information and resources that can be exploited. By compromising individual PCs, hackers can gain access to personal data and sensitive information. Similarly, infiltrating bank systems allows hackers to steal financial information and carry out fraudulent activities. Organizations are targeted for their valuable data, intellectual property, and financial resources. Therefore, black hat hackers will find vulnerabilities in individual PCs, bank systems, and organizations.

They work with the permission of the system owners to ensure the security of the systems. Unlike Black Hat Hackers who engage in illegal activities for personal gain, White Hat Hackers work to protect and secure systems. Green Hat Hackers are typically beginners or novice hackers, while Grey Hat Hackers may engage in hacking activities without authorization but with good intentions.

Ethical hacking, also known as penetration testing, is conducted with the explicit permission of the owner to identify vulnerabilities and improve security.

Once a computer is infected with a virus, it can be controlled remotely by the hacker, allowing them to gain unauthorized access to sensitive information, disrupt computer systems, or launch further cyber attacks. Therefore, computer viruses can be a powerful tool in the hands of hackers to achieve their objectives.
