Let's not kid ourselves here, you wanna learn how to hack. Simple! Not that you wanna learn ethical hacking. Have you got a LAN were you will learn? Or you wanna be learning live on the Internet and be breaking the law? Can you use Google for advanced search? Can you use Linux purely command line? Go and learn system administration and be competent at it.
Re: Ethical Hacking by Rexyblaze: 3:50pm On Nov 07, 2015
Any reasonable idea will be well appreciated
Re: Ethical Hacking by airsaylongcon: 3:54pm On Nov 07, 2015
I just gave you a reasonable idea up there! No ethical hacker does his work without advanced Linux knowledge. The first and primary tool (I'm not gonna mention it here) is a very secure Linux distro.

Why do you wanna learn ethical hacking? There are several other areas of specialisation in computing. Why have you chosen this very sticky area? Most people I have come across who say they wanna learn ethical hacking often have sinister reasons. Plus they lack the dedication required. Ethical hacking takes years of dedicated work and resources to master

If you know more on that area, it will be more noble to help the OP. He asked for help on something worthwhile: wouldn't you contribute heartily to your linux community? Remember, Linux itself is a product of altruism. It's open-source and benefits greatly from that.
I don't know the OP's level of comfort with linux, but if he's comfortable with the windows command line or powershell, he can take more risks with linux.

OP, if you are in PH and need help getting started with Linux, you can contact me. I'll walk you through to the level of a regular user. From there, you can't really get lost.

Reckless! You don't just start mentioning the names of tools here! I'm in email communications with him and you just come out firing blindly. Its just like someone saying I want to learn how to make a bomb for the Nigerian Army. Are you just gonna tell him how to make a bomb when we have terrorists all around? Jeez, thus is why a lot of you script kiddies run into trouble. So when he runs metasploit live on d Internet cus he hasn't got a controlled lab you gonna be smiling kikiki

This is how I tried back then.

Start with CCNA
Then CCNP
Then CCNE before you are qualified for Cisco Certified Ethical Hacker- CCE

Backtrack linux, Slackware or Kali linux won't be too hard.

Reckless indeed. But it doesn't matter where he gets the tools from. And your first reply wasn't helpful too. Thanks for pointing that out.
I've edited my first reply; you can edit the quote too.
Btw, you can send me some goodies as well.

Before you become an ethical hacker, you need to know how to program and learn most parts of networking, winsock and the likes. Hacking takes several skills of which I know you have to be seemingly smart with your codes.
Even the so called linux, Kali, requires that you have good use of how to use the codes well when giving instructions from the terminal.
Why I recommend learning to program, you might need to write your own exploits, back doors, or use Bash commands, when you are blank about programming, how do you go forth.

You don't count 1 and then 100, it follows in serial. A good hacker even won't come on to talk on public forums about things like these. Let alone expose himself to feds and the likes. cheesy

Get back to the basics, learn asm,python,c/c++ and understand social engineering. Then you can proceed to using Kali linux.
Also learn to use vulnerability scanners to figure out and patch your loopholes, learn how to do banner grabbing with nmap and the likes.

I gave you hints. I wouldn't speak further. I just hope you use your skills for good.

Learning Ethical hacking is one of best ways of protecting your Network Infrastructure and these days of security threat. You can not learning ethical hacking by watching CBT Videos on your laptop. You need to be taught and shown how to do it. You are really interested in practical ethical hacking . Please send me an email on kollins2008@gmail.com or call 08054712235 .I will give a DEMO

Ethical hacking is an act of or systematically attempts to penetrate a computer system or network on behalf of its owners for the purpose of finding security vulnerabilities that a malicious hacker could potentially exploit. The service of an Ethical hacker needs to be employed before the black hacker exploit your system or infrastructure, and that is the purpose of Penetration testing. An Ethical hacker performs Penetration testing , looks for vulnerabilities. A Vulnerability is a weakness in a computer system that an attacker can take advantage of .

Vulnerability Assessment is the act of identifying vulnerabilities for a specific computer or network and recommend the solutions. It is advisable for an organisation with network of system to always perform Penetration testing on their Infrastructure in order to avoid compromise.
For more details, send an email to kollins2008@gmail.com or call 08054712235 for Practical Training . Thanks
