The Rainbow Hat

Arrow Image A new taking on TRH

I started hacking, I guess, about a year ago. I was curious when the computer malfunctioned and looked into it. I began to learn the difference between whats good and bad in terms of hacking.

I joined HBH after I found Internet hacking was my real calling. I worked hard and made it to a high level. On attaining this I began to wonder what else there was to do an began exploring Black-Grey-White hats etc.

Each one of them was different to what I was.

White Hat

These people were the type of people I began to look to but then I saw their weaknesses. Their willingness to help others. This can be percieved as a good or a bad thing. As a good thing they train you to be a hacker. On the flipside they give information out in PERL files with a "Click to Hack" button for skiddies.

Grey Hats

What is a grey hat? Someone who doesn't know where they are or what to do? I believe that these people are the people who want to have a hat but like the idea of neither or both.

Another view is that grey hats are 'hacktivists'. This means that they attack sites from poliical or moral reasons. This sparks the problem of what is moral.

Black Hats

Not really much to say here. They are malicious and bad for the internet. The definition is; A malicious hacker who exploits - or publicises - a security weakness before informing the affected organisation. This destorys companies. How is that good?

So what was I to become? Where was I ment to go. I began to learn more and more programming languages and then I decided on a new theory. I called it "The Rainbow Hat".

The Rainbow Hat

This works on the principal that the hacker has decided to work for the good of the internet and to continue activities as a hacker.

These people work to help EVERYONE on the internet. This does not mean they help every single person but the work for the good of everyone. They work on patches and distribute them rather than showing exploits.

They work on open source. They do this so that other people benifit from their code directly.

They try to teach people without teaching them to harm.

They learn more and evolve with the internet forming new ideas as often as they can. They do not hate or discriminate. They do have personal opinions on racism and may join antiracist web hacking teams. They have a desire to improve the world.

In short. They work as guardians of the internet.

Hats in general are stupid. No one falls into a solid hat because everyone changes.. and also.. did you make this up? Rainbow? wtf.. I do a google search and i get this: "Gay Pride Hats" Yea i think not.
hack4uon July 09 2006 - 01:18:34
theres like 5 other articles on the same topic... but atleast you talked about what the rainbow hat could be if it exsisted. Smile
netfishon July 09 2006 - 04:47:54
horrible article... i think this "rainbow hat" is made up by Mozzer, as I've never heard of it either, like Frozen Flame. And it is NOT on google. I consider myself greyhat, since I can be good/bad at times depending on the situation and REASONS. ... rainbow hat... COME ON! Frown
bigggnickon July 09 2006 - 05:15:27
i think i want to invent a hat too, its called the purple fuzzy hat and i have no clue what it means. any one wanna become a purple fuzzy hat hacker with me? lol.
mozzeron July 09 2006 - 07:57:44
I called it the Rainbow Hat because a raindow for those idiots out there is everything in the visible spectrum. Yes I made it up but does that matter??? Rainbow does NOT describe gay people. They are associated with the rainbow with 6 colours. NOT 7 colours. @ Fritzo - Black Hats are trying to save teh world. WTF. Black hats are the malicious hackers!!!
mozzeron July 09 2006 - 09:22:21
How ignorant do people have to be lol.
WaTcHeRon July 09 2006 - 12:28:47
I decided on a new theory. I called it "The Rainbow Hat". He stated that he made it up! still its an ok article but like Hack4u said theres loads of these about
Mr_Cheeseon July 09 2006 - 12:59:31
do you even understand the grey hat princible at all? grey hat = hacktivist. hacking with moral and ethical reasons. perhaps more research is needed in future.
mozzeron July 09 2006 - 13:00:02
EG, Give me an example of articles like this
Mr_Cheeseon July 09 2006 - 13:00:22
also your "rainbow hat" idea ia basically a advanced white hat. hmmm.
mozzeron July 09 2006 - 13:26:34
Yes, but what is a rainbow? Diffracted white light. White hackers have their faults. TRH tries to eliminate them.
Thucydideson July 09 2006 - 13:56:31
Rainbows have 7 colors, not 6. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. Now of course the difference between indigo and blue isn't as clearly defined as the other color transitions and only 50% can see the transition between the two, thus making it 6 colors for some people. As for the hats, I think all the hats going around are starting to get annoying. I would rather see hat theory integrated into already existing ethical models instead of continuing to add smaller gradations that still manage to fail to capture the reasoning behind someones actions. An interesting question to pose is how do the differents hats behave when they aren't sitting behind a computer and why?

Ok, he mighten have got the other hats spot on, and i am not gay (i dont think he is either, and you should accept people for who they are, You came to the earth not to judge but positively influence man kind through computers) but i like the rainbow hat idea. I really do, thanks mozzer!! (I'll be one) And wtf people on about "he just made it up" ?? Everything has to start somewhere, someone would have had to make up the other hats at some time.
mozzeron July 09 2006 - 14:17:46
Thanks. Anyone else please visit the thread on this
Anarcho-Hippieon July 09 2006 - 18:30:29
owk normally i'm all with free opinion and all, but 2 things 1 -> cut the hat crap, do something usefull with the time you have We all have something in common what makes us 1 group, the hat thing is another way to break it open again. We are all the same, some just have other moral views on the same thing. and 2 -> this is not an article, sorry to say it but this shouldn't be allowed Only my opinion ofc
hack4uon July 09 2006 - 21:33:30 CHEK IT OUT
champlooon July 10 2006 - 09:59:06

Elitest_00on July 11 2006 - 16:25:58
I wonder if there is a hat that can get me laid
nimbus01on July 13 2006 - 18:33:20
How about changing the "Rainbow hat" to "The Mighty Chromomorphic Power Hat" Grin

"Black Hats Not really much to say here. They are malicious and bad for the internet. WTF!? Black Hat's are trying to save teh world..." Ummmmmm yea no.... saving the world does not happen by going aroung and hacking anything you can get your hands on. If you think Black Hats are googd.... boy go slap yourself... And lol on the Gay pride hat thing lol... Maybe Blue Hat? or Green Hat?
MaD-HaTon July 30 2007 - 06:58:35
