    Who should I talk to about hacking on here?

    Hello,
    I have some questions about hacking, and I'm new to these forums, I was wondering what forum should I pose my question in.

    Thank You,
    Kev

    well, generally you won't get help on any hacking questions where you are trying to hack something. There are rare occasions if you're really really good at wording stuff that you will get help. I would take a look at the faq of the site. This site is geared towards preventing hacking, not aiding it. As for which forum, just look at the name of each forum. And if you question doesn't have anything to do with security, don't post it in a security forum, choose the best non-security forum for your question. You usually can't go wrong with General Chit Chat. A lot of stuff is accepted there besides the obvious. Good luck.

    Thanks for the advice...despite my screen name, I'm actually trying to prevent hacking....I work at a college, and our tech department is trying to prevent kids from hacking into their transcripts....I'm by no means an expert, just trying to do some side research on my own.

    well kev.. this particular forum section "Questions About AntiOnline" is for questions relating to the forum itself.. So actually for the question on where do I post.. does sorta fit in.

    Each forum section does have a description for what should go in there, it's mostly self explanatory. ie.. If you have a general question.. then stick it in general chit chat.

    keep in mind that the forum is NOT about hacking into some server or defacing websites.. it's about how to protect against getting hacked. of course, if you want to hack your own computer on your own network.. well.. that's all well and good.. it's all about the knowledge of how it works and not about how you can do damage or upload warez files to some place.

    read some of the FAQ's and stickies in each forum section.. you'll get some better ideas on what we're all about..

    edit : man I type real slow.. there wasn't any responses when I first started.. lol

    well WestyHacker looks like negative answered your first question so ask away!

    The best way to learn about hacking is to setup a small home network and experiment with both the computers. Research how/why they work and how they are vulnerable to attacks. Then, look up those attack's/exploit's online and play around on your network with them. However, NEVER use it for the wrong reasons. Hope I helped ya a little

    Spyder32, peaple say that all the dang time but:

    Afterwards what have you learned?
    That you have a computer on LAN that is vulnerable to something?
    Point 'n click?
    C:\auto_rooter.exe 0.0.0.0 to 255.255.255.255
    How to sandwhich code together?

    Its really a rather sad thing once peaple take the advice you given, what many others have given in the past as well... and then suddenly all of these peaple wonder why its so easy to cuts and paste from exploits but only a hand full can actually find any of these vulnerabilities.

    Grab a compiler, once you get into some of these higher leveled languages move on to MASM. MASM is easy to fallow... once you start out with MASM you'll find that registers are alot like variables. For example eax, ebx, & (ect)... they all can be compaired to Integer, string, boolean, byte, & stuff in other languages. Yep opcodes have similarities to things in HLL too. Just take a look at string manipulation & stuff like that.

    Once you grab WDASM (and have TRUE) knowledge and understanding of how and why these things work its only a challenge of finding vulnerabilities before someone else does.

    Also you could get into web-dev but bah... any freaking moronic monkey can perform SQL injection or XSS. Also If you have a question just ask... most peaple don't even give a damn as long as it doesn't involve hotmail or some trojan. But you'll find that mainly what peaple get pissed about is those who like tossing words like hack and hacker around... this just shows that your only interest in computers lies within "being called something", it shows that you are just another child to be entertained, and that you're into computers because you think its "the hip thing to do".

    Serously afterwards what have you learned...

    off topic:
    Way to go Spyder! *cheers*

    I'd also like to add that TheSpecialist needs to learn a bit more about spelling and grammar...

    WestyHacker, if you want to prevent people from hacking those computers, I'd suggest you read up on securing the OS that is running on those boxes. A firewall might be a good idea too (if you don't already have one). Always consider physical security as well. A firewall won't help much if some kid can sit down at the computer and do whatever he pleases. I'm guessing this is already in a locked room... But if someone's desperate enough, they can get past a door. Just keep that in mind.

    That's my 0.02
