What is l33t or Language Used By Hackers

This is something not everyone is aware of. Today I am going to tell you about l33t.

Do you know what is “leet” or “l33t”?
Any idea?

Just read on..

According to Wikipedia:- Leet (or “1337″), also known as eleet or leetspeak, is an alternative alphabet for the English language that is used primarily on the Internet. It uses various combinations of ASCII characters to replace Latinate letters. For example, leet spellings of the word leet include 1337 and l33t; eleet may be spelled 31337 or 3l33t.

Hackers communicate between themselves in a language which is a combination of alphabets, numbers and symbols etc… This 1337 is very famous in the hacking and internet world. We can say that it is the language used by hackers.

The reason I am writing this post is that I found a dedicated page on Google on “1337″ or “leet”. I am giving you guys the link to it.. Just follow the link below
