What is hacking and what are hacking sites?

Hacking is a mini profession where you "hack" to open locked structures at Hacking sites to get the rewards they contain.

There are two types of hacking sites that you can get: Data Sites & Relic Sites. Both of them are Cosmic Signatures and you have to scan them down with your Probe Launcher first. For information on how to use them have a look at the Scanning Guide.
