I want to learn, or should I say understand what a hackers mind is. As because I want to protect myself and my friends from Identity theft.

Well, I would also like to learn Javascript wbat it is and how it's used, and I was able to understand it a little better now when I've done basic5 last week.

Well, as in an article I linked to once, there are two sets of rules for every system: the rules as they are intended, and the actual rules. The mindset of a hacker is to find the actual rules of something. To do this, it really helps to learn all you can. For example, if you know that a misconstructed sql statement can show you more sensitive information, you are able to find sql injection vulnerabilities more easily (whether your purpose is for security, or infiltration). So, thoroughly learning about a broad variety of current subjects (php, sql, et. al.) is the best way to find those 'actual rules' and use them to do whatever your purpose may be.

I want to learn: asp, sql, assembly, stego, decompilation, and much more about security threats.

I've learned: Java, javascript, html, some php, and a wee bit about security threats.

I want to learn:
Javascript
PHP
SQL
Firewalls
How to use Linux OS( Tried it but scared to use it)
How to build applications in Linux
Linux Shell/Terminal commands
If debugging is the process of removing bugs, then programming must be the process of putting them in.

Javascript, PHP, and SQL: You'll find a good amount of tutorials on w3schools.com. It's a good place for reference. Keep reading. I am sorry to make that broad, but the only way you'll learn it is by writing the code itself. It means practice.

Firewalls... I haven't really found much INTERNET sources helpful (I've looked around a lot). I know of two GREAT books however that are not new but they are VERY informative.

Real World Linux Security: Intrusion Prevention, Detection, and Recovery by Bob Toxen (This is more of a general security book)
Building Internet Firewalls by D. Brent Chapman and Elizabeth Zwicky from the O Reilly series

You may be able to t*rrent them ;-) (I do not condone this, I suggest buying it!)

As for using a Linux OS. Well it depends on what you want to do. I hear the best beginner type of Linux is Ubuntu. Things to note are:
1. Linux is open source; 99% are free and downloadable. I would suggest Ubuntu however since you are a bit afraid hehe. I would say goto ubuntu.com and obtain an iso.
2. I came in under Ubuntu 5.x or something, I believe they now make a way for you to try Ubuntu as a windows program. I say get a copy of ubuntu and burn the iso to disc and run it. See how you like it. If you plan on installing it, you'll want to read up on dual booting and finding if the drivers are available for your computer hardware. Also back up your data just in case...
3. Building applications in linux- You may want to look into programming. If you are looking into compiler-compilers and computer language, you may want to read bison and flex. You'll want to get comfortable with the *nix system first, but goto sourceforge.net to see how most projects are constructed. You'll have to read how programs arae built, configured, and installed.
4. You will want to learn the linux/shell commands first ( I believe bash is the most common shell) once you get linux installed.

I hope this is helpful

I believe the best place to start, in regards to the challenges presented on this site, would be HTML. From there, you can branch out into other subject matters related to web design.

W3 Schools is a great place for this:

You'll also want to start exposing yourself to programming (Python is not a bad place to start) and maybe a little bit of Unix

Its funny I never learned python but I have been using basic and similar languages since the 3rd grade. Something to do with reusing outdated technology. I remember a "laptop" that couldn't read a small floppy disc because most of them have larger memories than the hard-drive. I only started getting into networking and web technology and languages recently, like after I read Nueromancer a couple years ago.

I think in the future more and more people will have to know how to defend themselves. You cant rely on governments or corporations to help you.

I want to learn more about wireless ad-hoc networking. I want to become more hardware proficient, doing repair and mods. I really just want to be good engineer, thats what I am going to school for.
