lol, "go to school to be a computer user"...that's funny. Funny because you are making fun of me yet you know nothing about me. You automatically assume I am a lame script kiddie, huh? Asking how to use the NET command and what I get from you is nothing but lame remarks. I personally do not care for crackers maliciously destroying web sites and stealing information; therefore, pete, do not compare to a computer criminal.

You seem pretty adament your not a script kiddie, and if your not - i apologise.
The fact still remains though that there are a lot of idiots who have read about this netbios "exploit" and are frantically mapping shares, deleting files, modifying autoexec.bat or other stupid ****. Its really not fair on the less savvy computer user who wants to connect to the internet safely and doesn't know the consequences of checking a few options in his network neighbourhood.
I'm still dubious about your computer security specialist thing though.

certified information systems security professoinal
that is what alot of people are after, myself included.
pete you just like to criticize people and ask them questions, tell them they know nothing and move on. You have not given any proof that you are up to par with anyone here.
Tsk Tsk that \'vB Code is ON\' is really tempting me.. No bad prof.! BAD!

I'm not here to criticize anyone, if someone posts an intelligent comment/statement/question i'll reply to it in an appropraite manner - if someone tries to act like they know **** but obviously doesn't - i'll point that out.
I just spoke to you on irc and you were a mumbling fool, gone from hacking networks with a soldering iron to being at a workstation plugged into the network and - well, as you know yourself, i bowed out at that stage, bored.
You should also know that i get hella drunk at the weekends and become particularly pugnacious, when i sober up on sunday i'll drop this thread like a hot potatoe.

Thanks for the link Prof3ssor, I am going to check into that right away. And as for you, Petey, I really don't care if you are skeptical about me wanting to be a computer security specialist. I'm tired of all these "crackers" breaking into systems and destroying/stealing information. I want to do my part in preventing (as much as possible anyway) crackers from breaking into computers illegally.

Fair enough, but you'd be well advised not to listen to anything prof3ssor tells you though, that guy hasn't got a clue, he tries to pretend he knowledgable but its fairly obvious that he doesn't know what he's talking about.

lol, I was lookin at that CISSP thingy and that got me thinking....I wanted to take some cisco courses at my school, and then train to get my CCNA, CCNP, and finally my CCIE (which will be hella hard). I guess there are only like 6600 people in the world who have the CCIE certificate...it would be awesome to achieve something like that.
