I know Node is just picking up in popularity, but it surprised me that you did not include it with the rest of the server related languages (even though after all, it is JavaScript)...

Has the OP been updated since it was posted more than ten years ago?

I'm someone who's tired of life not being 'EVEN'! Can you also help me with my crippling fear of emotional abandonment? Your copy and paste gun slinger attitude screams excellence.  Combined with the legitimate 'you' at the end, I concede.

I'll take one Hack please.

Hello,

Can somebody help me with using THC-Hydra on Windows 7, please? I managed to download and run it on cmd.exe but I'm completely newbie in bruteforcing. My aim is to crack passwords in online browser game gokickoff.com. I found some tips in google, watched some videos in youtube but still can't run it. I have downloaded this large password file https://weakpass.com/wordlist/1802 renamed it to wordlist.txt but when I attempt to use it in cmd.exe it's showing me ''file for passwords not found''. Where I'm wrong? It will be much appreciated if somebody can help me.

1. You should be running linux, it's far superior, but we're not going to get into that today. 

2. You need to make sure you're using the entire filepath, or that the password file is in the same folder as the executable program. Windows is really finicky with this. The entire filepath starts with C:\\ , make sure that's the one you're using. You can find it by navigating to the folder where the wordlist is and clicking where it shows you the folder you're in in File explorer.

My aim is to crack some passwords in an online game gokickoff.com. I have changed the passwords of my teams but forgot it and now can't login back in my teams. I've registered these teams long time ago and email addresses which I registered the teams are no longer available and can't request the passwords via email. I'm a completely newbie in hacking and watched some tips and videos in youtube but I'm afraid I put wrong comands in THC-Hydra and can't run the program. Can somebody visit this website gokickoff.com and just tell me exact commands that I should put in THC-Hydra? It will be much appreciated!

Thank you very much for your reply. Unfortunatelly, my OS is Windows 7. Regards.

This is not really the place to ask how to hack something that is not yours but I will help you with your Windows 7 limitations.

Google Virtual Box. Get that set up and then download an iso file (that is the file for the operating system you want). If you want something like Kali then you can just download an appliance and then import it. Instructions are here: https://www.offensive-security.com/kali-linux-vm-vmware-virtualbox-hyperv-image-download/ 

I hope by the time you’re done with your “project” you are hooked on this stuff like the rest of us.

Gotta include https://www.offensive-security.com/ Kali is a favorite and will come up. 

 

A fun one for beginners is https://null-byte.wonderhowto.com/ small digestible articles on various topics, also a youtube channel to go along with it https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgTNupxATBfWmfehv21ym-g

Just a heads up, you can get CPEH (Certified Professional Ethical Hacker) and CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker, up to v9) from places like LimeTorrents and The Pirate Bay, their lab exercises are very hands-on and are a great way to expand your knowledge.

Are all hackers illegal?

No.

Hacking in and of itself is just using something for a purpose it was not originally designed for.

99% of all your technology are because someone looked at something and said "What else can we make it do?"

Some people are paid by companies to hack into them, to test their systems, that is called Penetration Testing.

Some people hack at home, on their own equipment, to see what else they  can make it do.

And yes, some act  illegally too.
