Hello, world!
I'm goodTimes, I have been fascinated with computers and hacking for a long time, but always felt it was above my paygrade. Then a whole bunch of shenanigans aligned and I ended up winning a WiFi Pineapple MKVII at DEFCON. This inspired me  I decided to get my head out of my ass and start learning.

I love using the MKVII to illustrate to friends the importance of good security.

Hi, I'm 9o3. 
I am a Solution Architect, Bug bounty hunter, programmer, and most of all a cyber security enthusiast. I love finding edge cases and finding ways to make machines do things they aren't supposed to.

I look forward to getting to know all of you 🙂

Hello everyone. My name is Austin, and my name AgtShadow comes from a mix of my YouTube Channel, Shadow Gaming, and my Kali Linux username, agtshadow

I am a husband and father of two children, an 8-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl, and my wife and I have been together for ten years this September 14th and married for 4 of them. 

I am a Frontend Web Designer & Developer. Used to be a truck driver and then a local truck driver here in Fresno, CA, but by the time I turned 27 or so, I decided I could no longer be a truck driver. 

I began truck driving to support my wife and children and afford our property taxes and bills after selling the property I inherited when I was 18 years old to have a home with no mortgage and raise our children safely without too many issues. 

I managed to support my family through YouTube / Google AdSense Revenue and Financial Aid from my college. At the same time, I attended and received my Certificate in Web Design & Associate Degree in Web Design / Information Systems. 

I currently work at my college in two departments, IT & Web Design/Marketing. I love it here and really enjoy helping the students and all my coworkers are lovely people, and the college is near our home. Hence, our lives circle around in this good suburb of Fresno, CA, and I have never been happier in my life, minus a few significant issues going on right now. 
For pentesting, I got into Linux virtual machines shortly after experimenting with Node.js / Vue.js and eventually React.js frameworks and more like Git Bash, etc. 

I then tried Windows Terminal and loved it, then tried VMware Workstation Pro 15 at the time and absolutely fell in love with Kali Linux in particular as my first attempt at learning the Linux Environment. I know I should have tried Ubuntu or something else). 

Still, it worked out regardless, as I am about 10 months into learning pentesting. I now have my Bash Bunny Mark II, Panda PAU06 WiFi Adapter for Monitor Mode / Wireless Pentesting. I am just here to keep learning more and more as a passion of mine. I want to contribute to this community and the cybersecurity community to make the online world safer as we become so reliant on online use every day of our lives. 


Here are some links to possibly understand me a little better or follow me if you are interested. I plan on making some videos on my channel regarding the Bash Bunny and Pentesting once I get better at it and am able to write my own payload.

Please give me feedback on anything I share or converse with everyone about. I am here to learn and use that knowledge to help people and need constructive criticism and help from time to time. 

Thank you all for reading this and thank you to @Darren Kitchenand everyone at Hak5 for what you do.

Hello all, I go by Cryptonic. I just made that shit up yesterday when I signed up here cause it sounded cool and it actually is fitting for my personality. (Of obscure or unknown origin. Used of diseases. Of uncertain origin, either introduced or native to its area).

I'm self taught and not a pro by any means at HTML and CSS. I have dabbled in searchable databases a little in my former Physical Security Job as I did maintain and build onto our web based applications for daily job duties, and updated our departments internet website for other associates within the company to visit for various needs. I am just dipping my toes into cyber security, coding, and programing. I have worked with Micro Controllers a bit as well.

My main background is in RF, I have been part of the radio hobby for over 30 years holding 3 licenses issued by the FCC that combined give me authorization to use radio frequencies from as low as 3MHz to well above 273GHz. I am also an engineer in the RF field and most recently I have been designing Coaxial, and Fiber cable television and internet networks for most of the largest cable tv providers in the US.

Glad to be part of the community and looking forward to learning more.

   You can all call me Wardcroft. Not that it's my real name, but it'll do. I've been into computers since the early 1980s. I've done a little bit of everything when it comes to IT work, but lately I've been sliding deeper and deeper into cyber security and here I am now.

My strengths are in intelligence gathering / OSINT and social engineering.
