This chart is an attempt to classify hacking events and methods with something more than the simple black, white and grey hat hacking classification. After looking through a number of different possible attributes, the ones I came up with were the following, each rated on a scale of 0 to 10.
what sort of damage has been done to systems or to finances. a score of 0 means an improvement was made to the system due to the hack.
where on the legal scale does the event lie in the range of 100% legal to 100% illegal, or it might be a bit of a "grey area"?
yes, a bit subjective I know, but can we generalize that the motivation of the attacker is good, evil or maybe something in between?
how complex was the attack, is it a simple DDOS or an advanced threat like an online banking password stealing botnet?
Any comments would be most appreciated.
