  9. Best way to stay secure?

    i am setting up a computer dedicated as a learning resource and tool. People get caught out by stating without security from the beginning. There are also setting in tor that secure you even further but im not sure on what that is, i remember hearing about it in a defcon video. But basically this post is just asking how i can keep myself safe on the dark web and learning and using these resources to work my way into becoming an intelligence worker for my county. All help is greatly appreciated. Thank you
  10. Hi i have been very interested in the idea of being a pen tester, I have messed around with Kali Linux a few times before and I am setting up a laptop to run its primary OS as Kali Linux. One day i will be joining my countries defence force and will hope to make my way up in the security field and work for my county in intelligence. I am haven't even scratched the surface on how to pen test and use linux with ease. If anyone could send me in the right direction to start learning I would be extremely grateful. I also understand the task i wish to take on is not easy, I know that i will have to put in a lot of work to get to where i want.
  11. Kali Linux Book?

    Kali linux has released a free downloadable pdf and a paperback book for around $20. I was wondering if anyone has used this and if it would be worth while.

  13. Starting pen testing

    Hello, I'm really interested in the computer field and have tried doing things like kali linux and hacking into bandit but i never got too far because i lacked the effort and knowledge. I am now looking to get into a pen testing field as in my country there is currently a large need for computing experts and I've met with some of them and to be honest, i can out perform some of them and i have no clue what I'm doing. I'm currently working in a pc repair store so i have plenty of opportunities to test out my new skills instead of leaving it to the boss when things get too difficult. So if anyone could help me get started or teach me that would be awesome! All help is greatly appreciated, thank you :D
  14. Manual file work?

    Hello, i am new to most of the hardcore tech stuff such as programming and hacking but i'm not the guy who doesn't know what the windows key is if you catch my drift. I've been working at a PC repair store and we often use programs to remove viruses, spyware etc but when a virus wont simply go away with those programs "the boss" works overnight and does it manually. I want to learn how to sift through files and have to knowledge on how to spot what not supposed to be there and how to safely dispose of those files. I also made a post on removing Windows 10 passwords and someone mentioned that the passwords are stored on the pc, how would i find things like that too. All help is greatly appreciated. Thank you :D

    You can get to cmd in many other ways that are extremely more practical, but this could come in use if the other methods are inaccessible.
