    Computer hacker Jonathan Singer wants to remind everyone that not all hackers are of the so-called "black hat" variety who have sinister intent. "'White hat' is what I do in my industry and profession, to help secure networks and bring awareness to make it safer," said Singer. The longtime computer enthusiast tells Local 6 that one way "black hat" hackers can steal information from smart phones and other mobile devices is through free public Wi-Fi hotspots, like the kind found in coffee shops, gyms, and airports.
