hello my new dear colleagues on nullbyte, welcome to the world of white-hat / hackers, I could see that lately there have been many posts coming from new users with basic questions such as: how to download programs on kali linux, what type of wireless card,how to install programs, so I decided to give a brief summary for newbies like me, to say that i am still learning and if I'm wrong someone makes me correction.
1- WHERE TO START?
theoretically the answer is quite simple, you are in the right place to start, nullbyte is a community where you will learn many
new things, here's a bit of everything, from the most basic things to the raspberry-pi https://null-byte.wonderhowto.com/how-to/hacks-mr-robot-build-hacking-raspberry-pi-0163143/
but surely google and youtube are also other great tutors.
Going to the practical side based on what I went through, I think a good idea is you hearken requirements before you begin your life as hacker, it is said that to be hacker dont need to know programming, but I believe that a good hacker must know how to program, because in the future it would help you to better understand the functioning of the system, making your own exploits, and more. So my advice is before you start life as a hacker, you need to first have a basic understanding of computer networks and programming.
Here are some useful links for you:
Now if you already have some basic knowledge and want to start your first day as a hacker my first advice is to get some basic knowledge of Linux, because in my opinion hackers must know linux,
here's a good link to get you started:
When you already you have made all the requirements stated above I believe that you are prepared to give your first steps as a hacker
note: like me, may be the case of not being in a country with English as official language, then a basic English is also important for your path.
2- THE OS
If you already have the whole basis and do not know where to start, I believe that the first step will be to choose an operating system and download the most important tools for hackers, you can use any operating system for your work, but I believe that most good hackers use Linux, so my advice would be to choose a Linux distribution and install it on your machine, so to remember that the most popular distribution used by hackers recently is kali linux because it comes with alot of hacking tools on it.
you can download the image here and install it on your virtual machine.
download kali linux: https://www.kali.org/downloads/
And in case you already have surpassed all these steps before you start the first click on kali linux read this tutorial here:
After all this installation is important to take note of one thing, always anonymous, after you've completed this process, I advise you to install the tools that will make you an anonymous.
here's a good link for you:
4- CYBER ATTACKS
After you complete all the processes above said, this time for a hands-on, but before you start your attacks i think you should know the types of cyber attacks, I do not want to prolong this tutorial here is the link with the most common types of attacks:
The other thing I would advise you to take a look are also the googledorks:
In case you already know everything I said above, then it's time to get your hands dirty.
My advice for you is to start by attacks on web pages, SQLI and xss seem to me to be the most popular, then start to explore
these two attacks, use googledork to find vulnerable pages.
6- QUESTIONS ON NULL-BYTE
If even after all this you are someone who already has these 5 requirements and have any questions about a program, an error, how to install a program, an opinion on a particular device, you'd better send a private message to admin or to the nullbyte moderators, or also for those users who you see has many tutorials and participation in the community, I am saying this because recently I saw many posts with questions on nullbytes and many received negative credits and this is not healthy for the community and if we continue to post questions the community will run out of aesthetics, I am not a professional but I'll be available to answer whenever possible.
7-HAHAHA and if you are one that has passed all these stages, I am waiting for your correction and new tutorials..
