What is that?
I'am in regret a newbie
what a thing to be labeled.
anyway I just wanted to know what is that thing about real live hacks
on the page site status with router logs, and is a hack attempt encouraged and if successful will u be rewarded. Ijust find this kind funny

Um. Hack attempts are bad and discouraged. I'm pretty sure they're there just to let the would-be hackers know that JP knows they're not hiding very well.

well wht if u just wanted to show a weakness
just foe the sake of the sites well being
oh and im sure that people are gonna say that wont happen to a site thats dedicated to security but what if?

Well, if you want to point out a weakness...the best way would be to quietly PM JP. But the thing is, the point of putting Hack Attempts on the site, is to show that these 'hackers' haven't found a weakness and have failed at their hack attempt.

Being a newbie I wouldn't suggest trying anything against AO. Dumb place to start. Really dumb.

well i personally wouldnt try it even if i knew
for one i am a piece of silly putty raw and unpolished and am looking to mold myself into a self respected member also searching for knowledge,
but has annyone seen an actual attempt and was it humorous
