I can't believe this ancient thread (from 20 May 2006) is still getting attention.

I saw Vivek added his site (http://www.securitytube.net) about five years ago. I would note that he offers a variety of both free and inexpensive online training. There are a lot of excellent training providers out there for professionals, but there are also some very reasonable classes out there too.

So did the results of all this feedback ever make it to the Wiki? When I clicked the supposed link, it sent me to a video of Darren "hacking" Paddington Bear.

Hacking is all about practice; there is obviously a lot of knowledge and prep involved, but just like your first girlfriend, don't wait too long before you get your hands on it, or you may lose interest. Sure, learn some programming languages and scripting skills, and grab some beginner's books on hacking, but go right away for it and set yourself a hacking lab within your own box, with a Kali VM as attacker and another VM as target, and explore various types of attacks. If interested in web attacks, looks at the OWASP Top Ten, check Troy Hunt's videos on Pluralsight for the basics of XSS/SQL injections and the like. Use a proxy like Burp Suite to craft some HTTP GETs and POSTs requests. If you prefer Wifi attacks, learn the ropes with Kismet, the aircrack-ng suite, and their automation with Wifite (all on Kali). Try some MiTM with tcpdump and Wireshark. Break some hashes with hashcat and some wordlists for dictionary attacks (rockyou.txt is a good start, and crackstation has a really huge wordlist). Then there are also attacks on Windows with privilege escalation, buffer overflows, DNS poisonning. Try some recon with Nmap, learn to use Nessus and Metasploit. That is only the beginning, but such techniques will give you a glimpse of all you can accomplish and motivate you to dig further.

There's a metric shit-ton worth of videos out there. Made at cons, made by people at home... It's too much to list. Maybe you should rephrase your question to be slightly more specific?

There seems to be such a large variation of different resources to use to accomplish the same task, where do you guys suggest I start? what are your personal experiences with different courses, and communities?

cybrary.it is an excellent resource that is completely free and has a wealth of information on it.  One of my colleagues introduced me to it and I haven't stopped looking at it since.

Hey Securex, If you are interested in saving money. You might want to check out this site: https://www.packtpub.com.

Many of the books you listed are from Packt Publishing and they have their own site where you can save quite a bit of money purchasing the books directly from them.

Sure. Thanks for this site. It can be useful for the other peoples.
