Forum Thread: How to Hacknet in Real Life!

How to Hacknet in Real Life!

I just came across this game called Hacknet that released in August 13, 2015. Ive played till the second mission and i was curious as to "if i was a real hacker trying to accomplish the tasks that I see within the game how would i go about doing it?" Since I'm sure many others have wondered this I'm going to post for Educational Purposes only on how a real life hacker would complete these tasks in the real world for those who are curious just as i was!

What You Should Know

  1. The commands that you type are generally based on real Linux commands. Commands like

ls
cd
scp
cd ..
cat

and more... are all real basic Linux commands. The port numbers in the game, such as SSH on 22, are all proper, but beyond that, the game isn't realistic anymore. no hack is that fast and simple.
