    Become a hacker in 5 days ... really...

    Hey all --

    Been awhile since my last post but that's school for ya...

    Anyway while reading through the latest edition of 2600 I came across something pretty funny that I had to share haha. Seems like were all just wasting our time in our endless pursuit of computer knowledge when all along we could of been 'real' hackers in just 5 days!

    For a minor fee of course...

    Click bootcamps, then Hacking Professonal

    Hmm, what will I do with my newly purchased hacker powers ?

    By the way, does anyone notice something ironic about the final four digits of the phone number? haha.

    -- Peace
    The real question is not whether peace can be obtained, but whether or not mankind is mature enough for it...

    You guys laugh, but just wait, I'm on Day 3 and I can already run a port scan, tracert, and ping a IP. Just wait, who knows what I'll learn tomorrow and you'll be horrified, petrafied, oh, and quite possibly stupified beyond belief.

    Now, when I entered my info to get this pricing, I didn't put in my phone. It popped up with a "Please capture Phone Information" (???)

    I also want to know who these people are. A little WHOIS gets me this:

    So with all this makes me wonder how legit they are. Perhaps Google could turn up some reviews. I wonder if it's cult instead of a training camp:

    Just finished my hacker cert, the boot camp, I recommend to everyone. You will be amazed at what you will learn. > > > Cert Camp prepared me for A+,N+, MCP in only 14 days. Yeah, I learned a lot and the instructors are excellent. Technology changes so fast and I wanted to learn and keep up with the digital age. and their support staff really live up to what they offer. I couldn't pass up the laptop, guaranteed certification or your money back. I encourage people with no experience to give Cert Camp a try. It will change your life, it changed mine.

    If you want to know about network vulnerabilities and exploits, you have to take the awesome hacker training course. The class drove around in a bus, equipped with laptops looking for network exploits. I couldn't believe the hundreds of open networks in the Souther California area. CEO's of major corporations would be shocked that all their trade secrets can be accessed by disgruntled employees. The hacker camp prepared me for the worst of network exploits. Network admins, I strongly recommend you take this course before you loose it to somebody that is hacker certified! My job is now more secure because of my training.

    Mood of this message:
    whoever is reading this, you folks have to give Cert Camp a shot. They offer accelerated training in MCSA/MCSE CCNA/CCDA A+,N+,MCP hacking security CCNP and more. This company is new, but they are dedicated to getting their students to accomplish goals and objectives. The mood is very uplifting and very empowering. Cert Camp, no doubt in my mind is going to change the way we learn.

    You can not change the inevitable. To truly become a hacker is more than a course that may or may not be a scam you take all your money and information.

    Hackers believe that Knowledge is Power. Hackers also believe in not spoon feeding people.

    You can not be a hacker in 5 days. You can only be a user of tools in 5 days. A true hacker does their research on as much as you can an know how to apply it.
    And the Truth shall set you Free. Free In Deed.
