grey hat

Grey-hats are hackers who work on the border of legality and exceed it by all means.

The distinction between white-hat hack ers and grey-hat hackers is blurred, as both uncover security vulnerabilities but do no harm to data or programs. The difference lies in the fact that grey-hat hackers spread their idea of freedom of information and derive their own advantages from their activities, for example by pointing out security vulnerabilities to companies, but want to be rewarded for this or publish the vulnerabilities.
