Let’s not shoot the messenger just yet


I REFER to your editorial “Of white hats and whistleblowers” (Nov 19) which says “In the tech community, Rozario would be known as a ‘white hat hacker’, one of the good guys, as opposed to the black hats who have malevolent motives. It is a pity that instead of lauding his effort, too many of us decided to shoot the messenger”.

A hacker is an individual who owns and uses technical computer, networking or other skills to overcome a technical problem. It is also referred to a person who uses his or her abilities to gain unauthorised access to systems or networks in order to commit crimes.
