Community Byte: HackThisSite Walkthrough, Part 1 - Legal Hacker Training
Welcome to another Community Byte announcement! For the past few Community Bytes, we coded an IRC bot, and hacked it. Then, we created a web-based login bruteforcer! This week we are going to start something a bit different. We are going to start going through the missions at HackThisSite one-by-one each week, starting with the basic missions.
HackThisSite is a free, legal, and safe practicing ground for aspiring hackers. HackThisSite has their server set up with many example websites and various other missions that range nearly all hacking categories. It is a place where you can test your knowledge and learn new things without having to worry about legal reciprocation, so you can actually learn without doing anything illegal.
Join this Community Byte, and idle in IRC!
- Basic missions.
- Realistic missions.
- Application missions.
- Programming missions.
- Phonephreaking missions.
- Extbasic missions.
- Stego missions.
- IRC missions.
We will be using IRC to round people up before we begin. If you're new to IRC, go here to learn how to set it up and use it. On IRC, I will walk everyone through the mission and give you all of the resources and hints you need to solve it. If no one can solve it, I will show you how to do it, and why the exploit works.
This will take place every Friday at 5:00 pm PST, so be in IRC around that time.
- Learn basics to hacking.
- Open the doors for you to learn more on your own.
- Learn different classes and kinds of exploits.
- Bring the community together and teach each other new things!
- Get more people in IRC.
Get everyone you can to join IRC and start posting in the forums! Don't be shy, we don't bite, and the more people who idle 24/7, the more fun it is for all of us! I'm always there, so come say hello.
