Something to think about.
Have you all noticed that more and more elite hackers are giving up their secrets? But here is the question are they giving all of them up.
And why do you think that could be?
There was a time when you could hack, Trojan and pretty much mess with anyone system without any worry of the law interfering.
I think those times are over, and I think the Hackers know that. Now if I was a smart elite hacker what would I do. I might do is this.
"hum mm, OK this sucks I am seeing masters of hacking going to jail, man Johny Law is all over us now."
What to do,
"Shoot well might be best to give out just enough information that will start a huge increase in hacking, If I give law enforcement easy targets they will go for them and I can continue my practice."
Now I am sure you all know that social engineering is a specially of hackers. And I think they are also very. very good chess players.
In chess if the King is in danger, give up a pawn. But to give up pawns you must have pawns to sacrifice. Now is this kinda making more sense? Give out enough information that have pawns that feel as if they can hack, They become a smoke screen while the elite hackers keep their elite hacking skills to themselves.
(BTW do a net search on the rise of hacking in conjunction with the rise of law enforcement prosecutions. You will see a correlation. Could this be the creation of a smoke screen?.)
I am not saying to not pay attention to what the elite hackers are teaching. There is a code of honor But to keep in mind that they are only giving you the basics and you have to move beyond that. To see that its really a point of beginning and not the end. If you feel you are a hacker just because you understand their tut and begin to hack away wooohooo boya!! I got it!!! Well nice knowing you, tell me how jail works for you
So here is the question, do you want to play the part of a pawn. to be sacrificed at the whim of the master, or do you want to move beyond that to Knight, Bishop, Queen or to be your own KING! That depends on your own work and how far you think and study beyond what you read..
