For Those about to Hack .... we advise you :oP

we seem to be having a fair few of the "I want to be a hackman" style posts here in intro
and I just thought it might serve a purpose if I posted a little bit of detail of what we will accept, and how to go about earning the right to ask the membership for info on just that matter

we DO have all sorts of users here
we DO have users here who are adept in their chosen field
we DO have members who are pen testers
and others who dabble in the smoky arts
but YOU have to add viable useful content TO the site first before you can even think of any form of advancement

write some tutorials on how to use xyz software
doesn't have to be thesis quality
but we can then determine if you actualy ARE serious
and are actually gonna hang around here too

remember, it is a 2 way thing
give AND take

you could start by adding a post in the relevant section, giving an overview of what you already have, what you do on a daily basis
not exact details, just an overview
and how you hope to progress in your chosen career

if you are NOT English speaking, we don't care how it looks, just so long as we can make sense of it
or if you prefer, we DO have a non-english section within the tutorial part of the forum HERE

and if pen testing [think of pen testing as legal hacking :shock: [sorry Harry :D] IS the way you wish to proceed along, then you may find THIS useful

you also may want to check out C|EH - Certified Ethical Hacker - you need this cert to work as Pen Tester. And if you have it revoked due to doing - for want of a better term - private work :P then you also lose your job .................. :shock:

book of C|EH review guide HERE

and another worthwhile book is Troubleshooting Microsoft Technologies. find it HERE
this gives details of a LOT of MS tools, with details of what each tool does, and how to use it.

and after all this effort, you better get qualified PDQ :shock: :mad: :galdancin:

For those wannabee hackers I'd like to add that there isn't some magical trick. It will take a lot of hard work on your part.

Learn, try, fail, learn more, try more, fail more... And someday, someone might call you a hacker.

Most don't know the true meaning of hacker. If you get a bad hair cut it is called a hack job, the barber is a hacker. Back in the day everything was new, so we hacked at it until we figured it out or failed and tried again, breaking it, rebuilding it and trying again, we hacked at it, it had to do with the method of learning by trial and error, not the wanna be's of today of script kiddies and rip offs. Get a clue, have passion, drive and desire for what you do, don't expect someone to teach you that.
There are two rules for success in life:
Rule 1: Don't tell people everything you know.

Using the H-word actually WATERS DOWN search engine results.

If you want to bring in technical content then you should use keywords that are usually only found in programming syntax.
