How To Become A Hacker


1337 description

The hacker ethos and community as I have described it here long predates the emergence of Linux after 1990; I first became involved with it around 1976, and, its roots are readily traceable back to the early 1960s. But before Linux, most hacking was done on either proprietary operating systems or a handful of quasi-experimental homegrown systems like MIT's ITS that were never deployed outside of their original academic niches. When I originally wrote this how-to in late 1996, some of the conditions around it were very different from the way they look today. A few words about these changes may help clarify matters for people who are confused about the relationship of open source, free software, and Linux to the hacker community. If you are not curious about this, you can skip straight to the FAQ and bibliography from here.

Hackers (and creative people in general) should never be bored or have to drudge at stupid repetitive work, because when this happens it means they aren't doing what only they can do — solve new problems. Therefore boredom and drudgery are not just unpleasant but actually evil.

Real hackers call these people ‘crackers’ and want nothing to do with them. Real hackers mostly think crackers are lazy, irresponsible, and not very bright, and object that being able to break security doesn't make you a hacker any more than being able to hotwire cars makes you an automotive engineer. Unfortunately, many journalists and writers have been fooled into using the word ‘hacker’ to describe crackers; this irritates real hackers no end. a.k.a. leet, lite, elite, eleet, 1337, 3l337, l33t, 3l33t Leetspeak, or "leet" for short, is a type of online jargon in which a computer user replaces regular letters with other keyboard characters to form words phonetically.

Being a native English-speaker does not guarantee that you have language skills good enough to function as a hacker. If your writing is semi-literate, ungrammatical, and riddled with misspellings, many hackers (including myself) will tend to ignore you. While sloppy writing does not invariably mean sloppy thinking, we've generally found the correlation to be strong — and we have no use for sloppy thinkers. If you can't yet write competently, learn to.

Javascript is "the programming language of the web," so If you'd like to continue your learning in web development/hacking, Javascript is better to learn than Python. When you're ready to start programming, I would recommend starting with Python. You will hear a lot of people recommending Perl, but it's harder to learn and (in my opinion) less well designed.

Today there is little point in attempting to distinguish between these categories, and it seems unlikely that will change in the future. Work as intensely as you play and play as intensely as you work. For true hackers, the boundaries between "play", "work", "science" and "art" all tend to disappear, or to merge into a high-level creative playfulness. Also, don't be content with a narrow range of skills. Though most hackers self-describe as programmers, they are very likely to be more than competent in several related skills — system administration, web design, and PC hardware troubleshooting are common ones.

Linux vulnerability scanning software is used to detect vulnerabilities in systems and applications. Malicious parties often use vulnerability scanners as Linux hacking software in order to detect exploitable vulnerabilities, gather simple passwords, discover configuration issues, and perform denial of service attacks. Vulnerability scanners are frequently used for Linux distro hacking because of these capabilities. Linux, as it is the most versatile platform to perform hacking operations.

In 1996, when I first published this Hacker HOWTO, the hacker community was rapidly reorganizing around Linux and a handful of other open-source operating systems (notably those descended from BSD Unix). Despite these reservations, RMS's claim to define and lead the hacker community under the "free software" banner broadly held until the mid-1990s. It was seriously challenged only by the rise of Linux. Linux gave open-source development a natural home. Many projects issued under terms we would now call open-source migrated from proprietary Unixes to Linux.

Hackers won't let posers waste their time, but they worship competence — especially competence at hacking, but competence at anything is valued. Competence at demanding skills that few can master is especially good, and competence at demanding skills that involve mental acuteness, craft, and concentration is best. The hacker mind-set is not confined to this software-hacker culture. There are people who apply the hacker attitude to other things, like electronics or music — actually, you can find it at the highest levels of any science or art.

“Et” was the 27th letter of the alphabet. And actually, you can still find it on your keyboard! Now most people call this character an “ampersand” or simply “and”, but this character was actually considered a letter!

Network scanners are used to discover network security holes in Linux wifi hacking. They also can be used to gather information useful for Linux distro hacking (Linux hacking that targets software, applications, operating systems, etc). Another interesting possibility is to go visit a hackerspace. There is a burgeoning movement of people creating physical locations - maker's clubs - where they can hang out to work on hardware and software projects together, or work solo in a cogenial atmosphere. Hackerspaces often collect tools and specialized equipment that would be too expensive or logistically inconvenient for individuals to own.

And consider also supporting other hackers who have produced code that you use and value via Loadsharers. Lots of small but continuing donations add up quickly, and can free the people who have given you gifts of their labor to create more value. As editor of the Jargon File and author of a few other well-known documents of similar nature, I often get email requests from enthusiastic network newbies asking (in effect) "how can I learn to be a wizardly hacker?". Back in 1996 I noticed that there didn't seem to be any other FAQs or web documents that addressed this vital question, so I started this one.

Adding Python Modules

  • I observed in the section called “What Is a Hacker?
  • It's best, actually, to learn all five of Python, C/C++, Perl, and LISP.
  • Are you a fan of the hugely popular Lol Cats (to the left) with their sometimes strange but often hilarious captioning language?
  • Additionally, one of the unknowns about the next few years is to what extent Go might actually displace C as a systems-programming language.
  • Regular testing and monitoring using Linux hacking software gives organizations the opportunity to discover software and network vulnerabilities before attackers.

New words (or corruptions thereof) may arise from a need to make one's username unique. As any given Internet service reaches more people, the number of names available to a given user is drastically reduced. While many users may wish to have the username "CatLover," for example, in many cases it is only possible for one user to have the moniker. As such, degradations of the name may evolve, such as "[email protected]" As the leet cipher is highly dynamic, there is a wider possibility for multiple users to share the "same" name, through combinations of spelling and transliterations.

The third test has a tricky element of recursiveness about it. I observed in the section called “What Is a Hacker? ” that being a hacker is partly a matter of belonging to a particular subculture or social network with a shared history, an inside and an outside.

Where did Leetspeak come from?

Leetspeak – An Origin Story Developed in the early 1980s, leetspeak actually predates the World Wide Web by nearly a decade. It started on Bulletin Board Systems when the Internet was first developing and only people with elite status could access certain content.

It is not possible to effectively secure Windows systems against crack attacks; the code and architecture simply have too many flaws, which makes securing Windows like trying to bail out a boat with a sieve. The only reliable prevention starts with switching to Linux or some other operating system that is designed to at least be capable of security. One of those bad habits is becoming dependent on a single vendor's libraries, widgets, and development tools. In general, any language that isn't fully supported under at least Linux or one of the BSDs, and/or at least three different vendors' operating systems, is a poor one to learn to hack in. Show that you're trying, that you're capable of learning on your own.

What is IMO?

What was the 27th letter in the alphabet?

Number words are generally used to refer to the exact cardinal value of a set, but cognitive scientists disagree about their meanings. These results, in concert with recent work on real-time processing, provide the first unambiguous evidence that number words have exact semantics.

Basic Leet speak replaces letters with various combinations of predominantly numeric characters. Other popular examples of 1337 include, warez (plural shortening of ‘software’), n00b (‘newbie’ or ‘rookie’), haxor (‘hacker’). One of the more recent updates to the Imo app is one that should alleviate some parental concerns, as it takes care of a potential security issue. Until recently, the Imo app did not offer end-to-end encryption, leaving the door wide open for chats and calls to be intercepted by a would-be hacker. The addition of encryption definitely makes this free video chat app much more appealing.

Organizations can use the tools discussed above (password crackers, network scanners, vulnerability scanners, wireless sniffers, intrusion detection systems, etc.) to test their software and networks from a hacker’s perspective. Regular testing and monitoring using Linux hacking software gives organizations the opportunity to discover software and network vulnerabilities before attackers. Linux network scanners are used to detect other devices on a network. In doing so, attackers are able to develop a virtual map of the network. In addition to discovering other devices, many network scanners are capable of gathering details about devices such as which operating systems, software, and firewalls are being used.

This means you should learn several very different languages. If a language does too much for you, it may be simultaneously a good tool for production and a bad one for learning. This, of course, is the fundamental hacking skill. If you don't know any computer languages, I recommend starting with Python.

There's a lot of necessary but unglamorous work that needs done to keep it going — administering mailing lists, moderating newsgroups, maintaining large software archive sites, developing RFCs and other technical standards. They also serve who stand and debug open-source software. In this imperfect world, we will inevitably spend most of our software development time in the debugging phase. Even one of these can make the difference between a debugging phase that's a protracted, exhausting nightmare and one that's merely a salutary nuisance.

What does 1337 mean in gaming?

The comic number is 1337, which stands for "leet", short for "elite hacker" and "leetspeek" in leetspeak. Leetspeak is a form of symbolic writing that substitutes various numbers and ASCII symbols for letters.

Apparently, throughout human existence, males have demonstrated their mating fitness by inventing and displaying new and innovative communication forms. Have you come across the acronyms lol (laugh out loud) or brb (be right back) from texting or instant messaging? Perhaps you have lazily texted or typed C u 2mrw (see you tomorrow)?

L33t speek is more of a gamer language, people who play competitive or casual video games on computer. L33t speek doesn’t exist on Xbox or PS3 or any other platform. The sub culture of pc gamers is few and far between, producing sites like lolcats or meatspin, also the term “rick roll’d” originated from the pc gaming sub culture.

What is Leet mode?

The character "!" replaces the letter L, "3" poses as a backwards letter E, and "7" is the letter T, etc. Other examples of character/letter replacement include using "8" for the letter B, "9" for G, and the number 0 for the letter O. Letters can be substituted for other letters that might sound alike.
