Is hacking a Cybercrime ?

A crime against the government is also known as cyber terrorism.

Hacking as per me is a cyber crime usually but not always. For example, a specialized white hacker can be given audit task by the company, to perform hacking on its servers and websites. In that case, hacking is not a cyber crime. However, in common parlance we use hacking in negative form, i.e, any breach into a website/ system. Then its a cyber-crime.

A Cyber Crime which disturbs the public peace, or against any particular Nation, group, religion and supporting various terrorist groups/activities against Humanity is also called as Cyber Terrorism.
