Hacking: Where to begin

Recommended Posts

For all the people who are new at this whole “computer†thing and don’t really understand what hacking is all about and where to begin, I offer up these links to some great places to start learning.

Please contribute to this thread and I will keep it up to date. Probably should be made sticky.

Presentations:

http://www.lessig.org/freeculture/free.html <-- A speech given talking all about the problems facing culture when dealing with copyright and other digital laws.

Podcasts:

http://www.grc.com/SecurityNow.htm <-- This is fantastic for people who are new to the field. If you have the time or motivation, go back and listen to them from day 1, they assume you know very little if anything and hit on all of the major topics in the security field. Fantastic show.

IPTV Shows:

http://www.binrev.com/ <-- Produce a good IPTV show and also have forums that are usually helpful.

Thanks for the addition, I stuck it in the top post. Once it gets a little bigger I'll try to clean it up and organize it more.

If you are interested in websec (web security) you should pretty much understand the different protocols on the web, i.e TCP/IP, FTP, HTTP, SSH, etc.

Knowledge of HTML, PHP, ASP, SQL, Perl, and Python is good.

HTML: http://www.w3schools.com

PHP: http://www.php.net

ASP.NET: http://www.asp.net/Default.aspx?tabindex=0&tabid=1

We're assembling quite a large libarary of links, thanks guys! It's already almost to the point where it needs to be cleaned up. I just want to make sure that we keep the focus on people who are new to the scene and not focus to much on all the different details. Maybe i'll make posts further down like an appendix and point to those for more details.

Yeah its hard to gauge what to suggest, everyone will be starting at different levels of expertise and wanting to focus on different areas. Perhaps once we gather a bit more content we should shift this to the Hak.5 Wiki?

Maybe once we get it edited down to a nice thread we'll have Darren make it sticky (he's the one that suggested we start a thread like this) and then we'll stick up a more detailed article in the wiki. I think it's important to have this in here, should help answer some of the n00bish questions from people who don't have a clue what their doing.

Agreed, since I'm kinda one of those n00bs. Thanks for the great links, I plan on spending many hours today just looking through these sites.

Wouldn't this be a perfect cadidate for the the wiki? I could sticky it, but it might be worth editing it into one article.

Absolutely, I’d love to stick this in the wiki. Go ahead and stick it if you can and i'll keep editing it as it grows. Like I mentioned earlier, the focus of this thread will be a "getting started" kind of thing, and in the wiki we can put the more detailed information and links to all kinds of different sites.

I'll second the vote for putting this on the wiki, but I also agree that to some point this thread needs to be here in the hacking section stickied. Great work fellas!

I know a little about html / action script... all the normal coding and I am willing to learn more about hacking passwords/website. I din't see the website : www.hidemyass.com : it can be really helpfull if your at school and you want to go on a gaming site or what ever.

One thing I also learned was...... READ! My mom always told me that reading was power. With computers its the TRUTH! So read everything you get your hands on, also with better english you have a farther path of life. (I said english as its my laungage but good grammar is my point) http://hackaday.com/ good site also
