Adeanna Cooke is one former Playboy model you don't want to mess with. That's right, a former Playmate is on this list. Boo yah!
Sure she's taken some naked pictures, but the woman has her dignity intact. A former friend of hers decided to post on the internet as her and also decided to take money for doing so. This did not sit well with her. If anyone was going to be making money off her slamming body, it was going to be her.
When she came across an unauthorized website with her face (and body) on it, she took matters into her own hands and hacked into the account herself to take them down. Bad. Ass.
After finding success in her attempts, Cooke also used her hacking gift to help out others in similar situations, becoming known as the "Hacker Fairy" to other troubled women being taken advantage of on the Internet. See a video of Cooke in action below.
She really sets the example for female hackers because she, like a lot of them, are something called "Hactivists", kind of like in the movie The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: they're out to be almost cyber vigilantes -- fighting against internet evil at every turn. Worst part about cyber vigilantes in this case is that we don't get the whole spandex treatment.

Ying Cracker is an educator from Shanghai that offends white people every time she says her full name if they think she's correcting them.
She teaches people the basics of how to start hacking; things like changing your IP address or wiping Office passwords. So it's really hacking 101, but the fact that she's awesome enough to teach it is awesome. And who doesn't want to learn how to hack from a crazy hot girl?
Although her last name is anything but inconspicuous (it's like a bank vault robber naming himself John Lock-Combination) she's a well-known name in female hacking and has the legs of a model in a flight attendant brochure.
How was she noticed? It was in a "Chinese Hottie Hackers" forum posting that got Cracker noticed by gawkers on the internet and created a huge fan base for her. Her work is impressive as well. She's an expert in hacker software writing and charges good money for courses on simple hacking tools. She also charges between RMB 500-5000 in helping other people crack software and usually makes about RMB 15,000 per month in the hacking business and for that, she deserves your respect.

Move over male Asian nerdy computer geeks, female Asian nerdy computer geeks are here to stay.
There's a new tech group in town and God bless them, they're female and smoking hot. Oh, and dangerous.
No, "Cn (China) Girl Security Team" isn't the original name for the latest iteration of Power Rangers, it is a Chinese female hacker group that currently has 2,217 members and counting. It's headed by Xiao Tian (pictured in all her awesomely hot glory to your left), who's only 19 years old and from the looks of it, has something else going for her besides extremely good hacking skills (great fashion sense, duh.)
This kind of brings in a whole new level of suspension of disbelief in the world's events. Apparently, I was wrong my entire life because yes, they exist: super geniuses who are also dream girl status.
After this I'm going to get started on my long, thorough and sincere apology letter to Michael Bay.
Xiao Tian created the now-infamous hacking team because she felt that there was no other outlet for teenage girls like herself in the male-dominated world of hacking.
Girl power, indeed.
