The internet and the World Wide Web has completely revolutionized the way we lead our lives. Not a day passes when we don’t check Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Gmail and those various news websites.

Known as an ethical hacker, the tech-genius is responsible for locating bugs or security lapses in websites and bringing them to light.

Talking to ProPakistan, about ethical hacking, the young hacker revealed,My primary role has been to discover exploits in products and services that we use in our everyday life. After I identify a security risk, I contact the people behind the product and they resolve the complaints. As an information vulnerability researcher, they acknowledge my efforts and even pay bounties after successfully resolving the exploits”.

With so many achievements under his belt, the Multan-based hacker has been invited to DEFCON, one of the biggest global hacking events by HackerOne.
