Very interested in "hacking"

Recommended Posts

Pick up some books. If you are interested in hacking webpages, get information on Apache and IIS. If you want to get into the school's Cisco router, you should probably learn that. It's not like the movies, and you actually have to learn the systems you want to target other than running someone else's scripts. If you brute forced your way into the schools Cisco router for example, you wouldn't even know what to do at a command line without learning the IOS.

Only do it for ethical reasons as the US laws were written a long time ago so $15,000 of damage gets you 20 years in prison and a $100K fine. To put that in perspective. Mess up a companies file system and they loose $50,000 that day. If I were you do some bounty hunting. Google pays big money for bugs that you find and tell the about. Companies also pay people like this to test their security. Best way to learn. Trial and error. There is no boot on how to hack as it changes every day with patches and so on. Once you know the root of how computers function you can play around. But true hacking now days is just social engineering

this is what I mean

So since I was young, ive always enjoyed movies about cyber situations. Hacking, servers, ect.. And recently its been real annoying because I have no clue how to get into any of it. And I dont mean hacking as in the negative connotation that comes along it. 

I really just want to learn everything, its literally fascinating to me. Any ideas or anyone take me under their wing? I have a lot of free time so im willing to learn as hard as it may be.

I suggest you enroll on a ethical hacking course at college or university.

 

hacking by nature is unethical, google spafford for a nice study on ethics of hacking, its also illegal unless you have permission.

 

remeber that just because your friend says you can hack my computer remotely your ISP which network you use would not also creating of a virus us illegal as is distribution.

 

you really have to watch what you're doing.

It's really nothing like what you see in the movies for the most part. Many attacks just involve "pointing" a program to your target and letting it do its thing for hours, then using collected information to act as if you were authorized to do what you want to do. Other attacks are about finding and exploiting vulnerabilities in a certain piece of software, but that can be a long, tedious and frustrating process unless it's done with a script, in which case it can be ineffective.

 

Nowadays what is most effective seems to be just social engineering, where you use publicly available information on your target to take educated guesses at their passwords or contact their ISP to get a copy of their SIM (which is ridiculous). Once you are inside their email account you pretty much hit the jackpot as most people use their private email address to sign up for services and reset their passwords.

 

Of course I don't condone any of this and if you do this I'll find you and put a Balrog under your bed. You have been warned.


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.
