Forum Thread: A Suggestion to Null Byte About How-to Articles

First please forgive my poor english. I appreciate many creators' job in null byte, they share knowledge selfless.As a newbie, I hope there are some basic theory not only how to use tools, I don't want to be a script kiddie.I like the Python Study Series,which tell me how to program python.I know the technology of arp poisoning, how dhcp works, therefor how mitm works.So, if you post a article to null byte, I hope there are some link or description about how it works.

Well since this is a tutorial forum you will find lots of tutorials but there are still quite a few good theoretical articles, but you must remember that articles that have a more practical side are often more fun reading and writing.

What I do is I have a list that whenever I learn something new or ask myself a question I put it on the list for things I want to search up later, then when i have the time I go through the items and look them up, and although it often leads up to more question, I get to learn quite a bit both practical and theoretical that way. There are so many place on the internet with good information you can always search up the concepts behind it if you want.


Congrats on learning these things! I hope you can keep using Null Byte to build upon your knowledge. It took my a lot of time before I finally knew how man in the middle attacks worked.

I would like to add an would be awesome if someone (or we as community) start a series on "market" hacking, it should involve algotrading (zipline/quantopian), machine learning and something else to detect trading bots, study them and exploit their behaviours/systems. Opinions???

Nothing will land you in prison faster.


Besides, if you can hack Linux and other types of computers, chances are you already know how to exploit a system that depends on it.


I think he's been misunderstood with his 'market hacking'. Its not a bad idea to try to understand bots at play in the market (data about buy / sell, order book, volume are public, one can make a lot of stats on that). One does not just go against the whales, but follow the trail and make money on them. There are known, less known, and hidden indicators to predict a market going up or down.

This is not about literally hacking the exchange, but analyze a machine behaviour and take an advantage on his strategy. Trade bots are perfectly legal in the end.

I agree. Even if its just a wikipedia link, sure I could Google it myself but the author of the tutorial might find another description easier to understand. I would also love to see more theory series here. I know how this stuff works pretty well but almost no experience

I agree with you. I try to give some theory about electricity and electronics and how they work before I go into building something in my Electricity and Electronics for Hackers series, in the hope that my readers will eventually be able to invent their own gadgets. And I am glad Defalt is making some tutorials about Python so his readers can eventually build their own scripts.


I've been learning Python lately (mainly just general mini-programs)

I've heard around this forum about writing scripts in Python. Was wondering if there was a specific python module/library for scripting? (like. i dunno, a script that auto clicks the cookie on Cookie Clicker; something like that)


if i'm not mistaken the lib for sending an receiving packets is scapy (not that its particularly helpful for cookie clicker ;)


Python = scripting. Python is a scripting language.

If you wanna make scripts that interact with web pages, the mechanize lib may be a good option.


I would totally do more tutorials and make them more theory based but college is a thing and I have a hard time keeping up with the tutorials posted here.
