    *nix: No Shell Programming, only extremely basic newbie shell commands and very basic info on the shell.
    Hmmm...how can you be a 'certified hacker' if you only know 'extremely basic newbie shell commands'? This all points towards the "Windows h@x0r" as you can read what else is required on http://hackingtruths.box.sk/htch.htm (complete detail).
    We the willing, led by the unknowing, have been doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much with so little for so long that we are now qualified to do just about anything with almost nothing.

    Itīs snake oil alright, no offence to Ankit Faida but I donīt think he can set standards like that and ask for money.
    Perhaps a certified company that provides professional computer training?

    heh, its definatly trying to cater to the wanna-be h4x0rz...you dont even have to know anything about NT or 2k or anything....i mean, if you want to be a "hacker", shouldnt you atleast learn about the most comon server operating systems?

    Send me $10. I will mail you a sheet of paper saying you are certified in anything you want to be. $20, and I will even emboss it with a gold seal. For the low price of $30, I will even laminate it for you.

    What good would a hacker certificate do anyway? Give you something to hang on you wall and show all your l33t script kiddie friends? Just make one yourself, they will never know the difference anyway. I don't know many companies that are going to be verifying a hacker certification either.

    Let's see if I can help. Typically the advanced security and cracker courses I go to are about $500-$1000 per day. If this place is passing itself off for a certifying entity I would suggest you -

    Look before you leap (get bio on place and instructors)
    Ask around for refs
    Don't pay a lot for a little.

    Hope this helps.
