Help, more forum experience the better.

Hey, I'm new here and just wanted to ask those who come to the forums what to look out for because all the hackers I know in person and online always try to hack you as soon as they meet you or set up "honey traps". Only looking for experience with that. If it hasn't happened to you, you don't need to make that comment. In that case silence is golden. We're all here to help each other out in my opinion hacking without consent is counterproductive among(st) each other at least. I mean look at what happened to Kevin Mitnick and Adrian Lamo. Solitary confinement, torture. Yeah, enjoy that.

It's not that it just hasn't happened to me, it's that it just doesn't happen.

Whoa there bud, wait a minute. Hackthissite is a generally trustworthy community who frowns upon anyone who calls themselves a hacker. If you mean honeypots, then those are used to bait "hackers" in to another device of yours on the network, so little to no damage is done. Well, that's pretty much the idea. You could also set up bait only networks with honeypots, which I have also done before. I've had problems with a mystery hacker (what I call him) recently after baiting him in to a trap (honeypot). I gathered a bit of information and saw what his goals seem to be. Unfortunately, I had to cut him off in panic mode after he started looking up bombs and child porn on my precious network. (I still had it on the same modem through a line I owned.)

I know I'm too hung over to answer this properly, but in my eyes, you just insulted people who are thousands of times more experienced than you because they might not have ever had a real hacker attempt to penetrate their networks. I believe if someone wants to comment, they should go right ahead. I have no idea what you're specifically asking either, what do you mean what to look out for? You should have enough common sense not to give "hackers" any information, and enough sense not to download anything they try to give you.

I'm willing to bet 95% of the people here never had someone actually try to penetrate their networks, via the internet or WLAN. The thing is, unless you're absolutely retarded when it comes to the internet, it doesn't happen. As for mystery hacker, I was specifically hunting him for days, keeping an insecure network broadcasting, so he'd bite the hook. I was just lucky he did, because in the real world it could take much longer.

Trust no one question everything. If its too good to be true it probbaly is, everything has a vulnerability and most importantly there is always someone out there better than you don't kid yourself.

If you want to know how to defend yourself learn on how to be anonymous online proxy bouncing, tor browser, Private VPN's Local firewalls, internet firewalls general online security. Honey traps are common but they are setup to protect company's and the general public your not a bear so dont go snooping around for honey. Also majority of honey pots are set up to catch people doing illegal activities... don't get me wrong tho some are just there to grab ip's details etc.

These "hackers" you have met are just boasting tbh you could just hack a forum grab the ip's of most of these "hackers" and have some fun but that will only get you in trouble (majority dont hide there ip all the time). These so called hackers are like dogs just weeing on everything to mark there territory. Its guys like us on here helping to protect future networks and provide solutions to these script kiddies.

Sounds like you have been hanging around with the wrong crowd.

Bottom line learn from experience, we all make mistakes but its easier to learn from others own mistakes and for the love of god don't be stupid. Read up on network security and protecting your network from attacks. Plenty of materiel online.

Those are skids man. You can spot 'em easy. They talk in "leet speak". They call themselves hackers and they have flamboyant handles like "PwnerH4xor". The only way to hack your box directly is through social engineering. Don't follow links, don't download anything. Don't load commands into your terminal that someone suggested in a forum. Keep a firewall up, and make sure you have AV on the back-end with a real-time sandbox. It is as easy as that.

To be honest if they were real "hackers" I don't see why they try and hack you but don't succeed. A real hacker would surely be able to get into any system they want, because all of the hackers that I have met / spoke to don't just hack to annoy people, but they see it as a goal and don't give up until they achieve what they're trying and learn new techniques to get them in. (worded badly I know).
