I'd omit "dirty" as this is subjective and a judgement and can a dictionary provide judgements, even if it's an online one?--IrishWonder 18:18, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

Delete this as definite SoP, but I don't think the definition of black hat is correct. I've always thought of it as being like the black sheep of a group, not just in computing.--Dmol 22:07, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
The computing sense is one of a set with gray hat and white hat. Equinox 22:30, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
In which case we need another sense, I have added the missing sense.--Dmol 08:21, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
Note, our definition of white hat soft redirects to white hat hacker. I'd rather not get too involved without knowing the terms myself, but the deletion of both looks right to me, per the good analysis above. Mglovesfun (talk) 08:42, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
Incidentally, I believe (though this may be wrong) that the phrase "black hat" in this contexts comes from Westerns, wherein the bad guys always wore black hats.​—msh210 (talk) 15:44, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
