How To Become A Hacker
Now most of hear the word hacker and fear strikes, anger strikes in our minds. It is generally because a hacker is misunderstood guy in society. Not all hackers are bad, there are three types of hackers :
Black Hat | Bad Hacker
Grey Hat | Both Good And Bad
White Hat | Good Hacker
Now here we have a good lists to guide you how to become a hacker. Follow them and fulfill your dream.
Operating Systems (Specifically Linux/Unix)
A true hacker totally depends on open source and freeware . Also operating systems Linux/Unix OS(s) are best to learn hacking and also to hack anything.
It is important for a person in the hacking field to learn more than one programming. There are many programming languages to learn such as Python, JAVA, C++. Free tutorials are easily available online over the internet. Specifically in hacking field languages like C++, Python, SQL etc. are very important.
Now this is where the things get interesting, you are a hacker and you are transferring files over internet to your pal and another hacker breaks in and takes your file and now he know everything, to prevent this you need to master the art of cryptography. Look for cryptography tutorial over internet and learn it.
You need to be good at networking concepts and understand how the networks are created. You need to know the differences between different types of networks and must have a clear understanding of TCP/IP and UDP to exploit loop holes in a system. Understanding what LAN, WAN, VPN, Firewall is also important. You must have a clear understanding and use of network tools such as Wireshark, NMAP for packet analyzing, network scanning etc.
Learn A Lot
Visit websites which teach hacking and networking exploitation signup on hacking forum ask help discuss with other hacker. Learn from expert hacker. Learn about phishing, sniffer, Trojans, RATs etc. Also learn good amount of batch programming and shell programming.
After learning few programming concepts or OS concepts sit and practice them. Set up you own Hacker Lab with a good system with good processor and RAM because your regular system won’t handle hacking too smoothly.
Find/ Write Vulnerabilities
Vulnerability is the weakness or a loop hole or open door through which you enter the system. Look for vulnerabilities by scanning the system, network etc. Try to write your own vulnerability programs and exploit the system.
And always keep practicing; never stop learning. Cheers 🙂
