Sweet! Thanks!

I also wanted to ask if HTS teaches how to hack (or whatever) without pre-made programs? I guess like you'd see on a show (I know show's aren't real life), where the hacker/cracker is clackng away on the keyboard typing code or CMD commands. Like how do our own commands instead of using someone else's.

RE: learning my hacking ABC's

First, often times it takes pre-made programs to do any sort of hacking. Just to look at a web application to see if it's exploitable it takes at least a web-browser. Many of us here have various addons to protect us and help us view vulnerable spots better. What I think you maybe confused with is skiddy tools. Skiddy tools are never used for any of these missions. The difference between a skiddy tool such as Metasploit loaded with the latest WordPress hack and Firebug being used to look at the page is that with Metasploit, you only need to click a couple of buttons and voilà, hacked. With Firebug, yes it is easier to view the page and change stuff around, but it's still up to you to find the vulnerablity and find out how to exploit it.

Second, the couple of clicks and stuff, that is real, but that's only about 0.1% of the hacker's job. It's like building a space ship. You first build the parts in a factory somewhere, and then you test the life out of them, never even launching the rocket. When you've tested every last part to death and made sure that you can't make it any more stable, you assemble the rocket and hope to god that it won't crash because you may not get another chance to launch one.

Lastly, cmd commands are easily designed, you can make executables in mostly any language, or you can learn how to program batch files. batch files are easier, but they have limits and are unstable and unsafe. executables, it depends on the language.

Hi all,
I'm 21, a trainee accountant who has a great interest in computer science.
I spend my spare time either on my computer trying to learn new things, out on my motorbike or exercising.
Would be great to get to know some of you.

Welcome to the HTS website. You can start off by doing some of the basics and when you run into a wall then go and google. If you are really stuck feel free to ask questions in the forums. Enjoy your stay.

I've been browsing the forums for a couple hours now, finding great information. I don't really have any specific guides in mind, just if anyone had anything they used or knew was very useful, I wouldn't mind taking a look at it also.
