Learn Leet : The Hacker’s Language

Language may refer either to the specifically human capacity for acquiring and using complex systems of communication, or to a specific instance of such a system of complex communication.

Hackers have also found their own language, which they basically use to communicate with each other.  It’s a combination of alphabets, numbers and symbols and is very famous in Hacking world.

The Hacker’s language used by the hackers to communicate with each other hackers is Leet (or “1337“), also known as eleet or leetspeak. For example , leet spelling of the wordleet include 1337 and l33t. In the most generic explanation, leet is merely replacing certain letters of the alphabet with numbers that bear a slight resemblance. l becomes 1, e becomes 3, t becomes 7, and so on… leet becomes 1337.

It was originally created by a group of chatters/gamers in early 1980s, it was developed to frustrate text filters created by BBS or Internet Chat System Operators. It’s first ever language developed by the hackers for their underground work, it’s really very old in its time but as it is said OLD IS GOLD, it was very useful to hackers.
