What's in a "gray hat hacker?"

He is slender, with steel-gray eyes and close-cropped light brown hair. He looks even younger than his 22 years, belying his experience in the world of high-stakes cybercrime

Mike Major, Jr., of Halethorpe calls himself a “gray hat” hacker–neither clearly a good guy nor a bad guy, but one who navigates the virtual realm of cybercrime guided by his own internal sense of justice.

“I do whatever I feel is right at the time,” he said.

Major said he has no regrets–or fear of reprisals–for his role in disrupting the international hacking group Lulz Security, or LulzSec, which claims responsiblity for attacks on several high-profile government and corporate web sites.
