  1. After reading the article, I say big thank you to the author to clear my concept about being an expert hacker and a dependent hacker. All of these apps/toolkit make a normal technical person a hacker that depends on these and without these available apps/toolkit it is nothing. An hacker/expert hacker does not require anything like these, it is dependent on its sole knowledge and experience to make a hack. These apps/toolkit are infact developed by such expert hackers and to provide network administrators, security personnel a facility to look over and maintain security concerns.
