Learning How To Hack – Part 1

This article is written for people who want to learn how to hack but don’t know where to start. In generell it takes a lot of time and knowledge to become a good hacker. For this reason I’m going to show you how you can speed up the process of becoming a hacker by providing you with different legal training grounds for hackers as a starting point.

There are several good web sites where you can learn to hack. These will provide you with a wealth of information on computer security and give you hands-on experience since hacking, as with everything, is really about experience.

Where can I learn about hacking?!

Hackthissite is a great web site to get started with. But before you can take a look at the missions, you need to register. After having registered try out the different challenges. If you are having difficulties with the missions visit the forum or HTS’ irc channel, both were created to help beginners. Otherwise post your problems here and I’ll try to help you out.

Another great web site is Hellboundhackers. It also requires you to register but offers a lot more challenges. It has a forum in which you can post questions about the missions, if you are having trouble. HBH has also several articles about computer security which you might find interesting.

To sum it up, Hackthissite and Hellboundhackers are both good sites where you can learn about hacking, even though HTS is probably the better one for beginners. I find that HBH’s challenges are often quite frustrating because there is usually only one way of solving it.

This is it for now, later I’m going to add some other sites and provide you with more information about them.

    Hi again Knubbl, when I click the hackthissite link in your post I get an error. Did they take this site down or is it just down for maintenance?

    The best hacker training website is haxme.org. They have a very educated and helpful community. You will get more out of completing the missions on this website then any other. It is defiantly the best so far.
