And that excuses him from being a script kiddie?

Read this several years ago and still have it on the good ol' bookshelf. An interesting read but not all that great.

Kerowren wrote:"Ethical Hacking" - god i hate that term. It's the media politicizing everything, you know. Why can't hacking just be hacking?


I agree. Most of the time I find "ethical hacking" used as another term for pen testing.

The term hacking and hacker is so non-politically correct

Hi All

Im new to the fourms but I sat the ethical hacking course that you seem to be on about
https://www.eccouncil.org/certification ... acker.aspx

Its a MONSTER of a course, all geared around ethical hacking and YES you do learn to cool stuff

But im lucky as my company paid for it.. My job title is "ethical Hacker" at the moment... I do this for a living
It costs a bomb to sit the course, but you get 5 books each with 1000 pages in each covering most aspects of hacking.. You get 4 DVDs with every virus and tool know to man...

Ask me questions and ill help answer them....

In my thoughts, it echoed that there must be no "guide" into hacking itself. Hacking is a self-motivating activity, which is enjoyable, the urge to create some holes into something, to discover and to apply a dirty quick fix. These books are categorized as script kiddie books, these books only shows how to do such things that exists several years ago. The idea of hacking is discovering things that hasn't been discovered yet. If you reinvent the wheel, then it is not hacking, it is copying. By hacking we mean that the idea originated from you. Like a patent, a badge of a scientist. If you just have these guidelines without living a happy life, then, you're not hacking my friend :geek:
