Hackers are people who specialize in breaching computer security. They can do it for various reasons: finding vulnerabilities in security systems to help their creators patch them, illegally accessing and/or modifying sensitive data for profit, or just for the fun of overcoming a system's defenses. Cryptocurrencies (both Bitcoin and altcoins) are digital assets, which means that by gaining unauthorized access to and modifying digital data, a potential hacker can steal "real" money. This, coupled with the lack of legal regulation in the field of cryptocurrencies, leads to companies operating in it placing a huge emphasis on digital security.
