Despite the extant quantum communication technology that does not allow copying, wiretapping, and/or monitoring, cyber-terror-attempts from hackers with unconscientious purposes and motives are prospected to persist. Hence, it is imperative and necessary to invest in studies geared toward understanding the psychology of hackers. The current study referred to Beebe & Clark (2006) and sought out the psychological variables in hackers involved in deviant hacking activities, measured the purpose of hacking and actual hacking experiences, and constructed a predictive model that can categorize hacker types based on their intentions.
