Hi im new to programming & hacking but im keen want to learn.
im going to start a btec course in IT (its 4 years long)
then i hope to go to university & learn ethnical hacking.

basicaly id like to get a head start.
i know a bit about computers, i know how to remove & replace a cpu, harddrive & ram.
i tried to learn html a while ago but i didnt study it 4 very long.

im active on a few forums & torrent site's.
Im currently a encoder 4 a large release group.

ive been told i need to learn c/c++, python & HTML first.
i tried following a few tut's to learn c++ but most of the programmers ive spoke to say it take's year's just to learn the basic's of a programming language, thats why i decided to learn it in collage & university.

So would someone please be able to point me towards some tutorials to learn the princibles & basic's of hacking.
(im more intrested in penertrating networks & similar things)

I also need somewhere to download hacking tools as im not able to make my own (yet).
i have googled but as most of you would of gused there are alot of viruses, scams & backdoors out there.

Any help will be appreciated also thanks 4 reading wink.gif

Best way to get a head start is to sit down and start learning a language. Any one will do for starters. If C++ is what you will be doing then start learning that.

You can pick up the basic concepts of programming by 6-7 months of daily 2-4hour practice and studying by doing practical and theory tasks and projects in C. Then once you can say you can sit down, look at a problem and sketch out a solution on paper then implement that in code (doesn't have to be hard, try like a simple calender database or a address book app ) then you can move onto C++ and start the cycle over again.

As for Hacking. Same thing applies. Learn about how networking works, TCP/IP fundamentals. Routing, switching, ports, firewalls, then look at how operating systems handle network communication, how applications talk to lower level hardware etc.

Probably wont be there over night, but definatly be able to master parts of it fairly quickly!

If you know anything about Boot CD's, you might want to look into backtrack. It's a pen testing operating system specifically designed for just that.

Their website has a list of the tools available on the OS. You can google them and learn in detail what you can accomplish with each one.

But before you start with that, I would say do what B says. Don't sweat programming too much man, takes work, I still don't get it.

http://www.backtrack-linux.org/

That's the site.

I'll list some tools I like

TCPdump
nmap
wireshark
warvox
aircrack-ng
GOOGLE

Cheers!

I don't think learning programming is particularly easy, you have to learn to think how a computer works. This is counter-intuitive for most people (of course I started at a young age and have never found this particularly difficult, but I've seen many people who just don't get it after extensive study).

In practice, a language like C++, which is unbelievably complicated, will just slow you down. You really want something that is very simple and easy to understand. Like Python.

I like Python. I've been programming for >25 years and I've never seen anything as clear, which makes programs likely to work. Most of my Python code works the first time I run it, which has almost never happened in any other language.
