How to Become an Elite Hacker, Part 1: Getting Started
Who am I?
First let me introduce myself. I am Th3skYf0x, an -well lets call it
experienced- hacker and i recently found this site and right after that i found this Null Byte "world" soo i thought... Why not teaching instead of doing nothing with my knowledge. Let me get one thing clear, i am not the best hacker in the world and will probably never be that. But i can always share my experiences.
Now let's get started. What does every hacker need to have?
=> A good hacker-name
=> A good OS (Operating System)
=> A good "virtual Age"
As EVERY hacker has an alias you will definitely need one and preferably a cool looking one :-)
Let's start by looking at my name: Th3skYf0x. Its basically contains three words.
Pronounced as "The".
I choose this because skYf0x was already being used by some dude on an anarchy site (Just google skYf0x). We don't want to see people getting the wrong idea right?!
If you ever watched a single cycle race (preferably the "Tour de France" you'll se that the team called "Sky" always wins! ;-)
I like the fact that foxes are very smart and cool animals thats why i choose to use the fox in my alias
To create you'r own hacker name you gonna have to use a bit of common sense. Be original! use a combination of upper/lower case and numbers.
Quick tip! google you'r name first and then decide if you still want to keep it
If you think that you are only able to hack on linux based operating systems then you couldn't be more wrong! With the right tools and skill, a windows desktop can be as dangerous as a linux desktop.
So choose wisely my fellow hackers!
Quick tip! if you'r running on windows and you know how everything works and know about virtual machines stay on windows.
> Windows 7 +
> Windows vista -
> Windows XP +
> Mac OS X (I have NO experience with apple whatsoever) ?
> Ubuntu +
> Kali Linux +
> Opensuse -
> Debian -
> Bugtraq +
Choose you'r OS yourself Don't let other people decides what's the best OS for you!
If you want to become a "good" hacker then you need to act as one!
some things like proper use of grammer and emoticons are important.
Well thats really easy. we are not 10 years old anymore and you shouldn't see hacking as a joke. Its more some kind of art form. In order to learn something here you'll need to be quiet.
I will start of slowly doing some easy hacks. Then after some time has passed i will start doing more advanced hacking tutorials.
Good luck my fellow hackerians!
