hackers are criminal. It's not cool of any kind.
This is outright wrong. There are a lot of "white hat" hackers who find exploits and report them rather than exploit them.
Perhaps you are using the term hacker as someone who actually does exploit vulnerabilities that they find, but the guys who hack away at security only to report the exploits are still hackers but not criminals.
