Washington DC, Aug 3 (THAINDIAN NEWS) There will soon be an alliance between a group of veteran American hackers and their Chinese colleagues according to confirmatory statements, which were made at the Defcon in Las Vegas.

It ought to be mentioned that the hackers have always been involved in activities such as unlocking software, smart phones and even sophisticated machinery like power plants as seen in movies. Many hackers are regarded as bad people across the world but most of the time; they only hack into systems to help beef up their security.

Recently the hackers have started to gain recognition from the public and they are being consulted to help build safe and secure software for cell phones and Internet browsers which most of us can’t live without these days.

“We go into bars, look for lists of bad actors, get tips from people. But a significant amount of our intelligence comes from our monitoring the Internet. We are looking at everything on websites, and websites are public,” according to Chet Uber.

Hackers are no more operating in hidden locations but having public meetings such as the DefCon, which will in turn only give us all a better perception of them and what they do.
