- Compiler: Creates unique viruses used for hacking other networks.
- Program Library: Stores all of your compiled programs.
- Evolver: Upgrades current viruses, as well as developing new ways to capture and infiltrate networks.
Each node has a specific number of connection slots available, which allow it to be linked to other nodes. Each link takes up one slot on each of the linked nodes. Each node also has a specific number of program slots, which allow programs to be installed on it during a hack. Each program takes up one slot on a node.
Hacking nodes also have a certain amount of firewall depending on the node level, which can be depleted by installing offensive programs on connecting nodes. Nodes will naturally recover firewall when not shocked or stunned, at the regeneration rates shown below.

- Unlike Business Nodes and stealing resources, capturing a Program Library does not result in the transfer of programs.
