Ok being a newbie is hard because you tend to do stupid things and mess up. I hope that writing this isn't one of em...

Ok I'm a newbie and I want to be a good hacker. I don't know where to start. Hacking is such a large field that when you first come into the scene you're overwhelmed with information. So could anyone out there help me out with finding a starting point for hacking? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

depends... you should read alot.

start out by learning some programming... read alot of shizzle and have fun.

learn about tcp/ip and all that stuff. The more you know the better.

the best thing you can do is hang around the forums and try learning from others. ASK QUESTIONS!

remember hacking is an endless journey.

I think this would be a good site to start with, they have alot of beginner knowledge about many of the common programming languages, as well as TCP/IP information. Check it out. Like those above said, make friends with a library.

HTML and CSS are not exactly programming lanuages. I image most will say learn Perl for quick scripting jobs, PHP for some cool web apps (I've yet to touch Ruby, some day maybe), and C/C++ for lower level apps.

Figure out what youre most interested in.
Me, I personally like Social Engineering, Retail hacking, and other things that are related to computers that would be done in public.

Just dive right in!


EDIT: Oh and uh, read some stuff on the way.

If you know one then learning another language can be relatavly simple.
Its a case of working out how its written, syntax and so on.
Thats why when you learn anything and more so programing you take baby steps. Some people pick things up more then others and its really key to work out how you learn best. Once you crack that you can eat right through the boring parts. (IMO)
