What's Needed To Become An Ethical Hacker by Aodenterprise: 11:38pm On Mar 30, 2019
Hello everyone, The main reason why I created this was mainly because I so much wish to be an ethical hacker.
and I understand the fact that programming will be needed and I just finished learning HTML and CSS due to the fact that quite a lot of people suggest I start with that.
I just need some sort of advice as regards the language I should go for next and how I should go about this whole thing.
please y'all should not just read and bounce because am really in dire need of direction as regards this.

Stop looking for language. Go head on to what you want to hack and learn what is appropriate. Simple and short.

I was told HTML is the easiest so as just to familiarize with what programming entails I just went for it.
I wanna start with websites bruh...
what language do you think I should go for and maybe just break it down...like what's needed after learning the language?

Do you wanna learn how to program a website or you want to learn how to hack.

Although entails knowing programming but the learning curve is different.

Give a sledge hammer to a layman and ask him to break down a building, it will take him days/weeks to do that. Give the same sledge hammer to a building constructor, he knows where to hit the building and it will collapse within hours.
Same goes to hacking.
Good programmers make good hackers. Ponder!

You need

A Brain.
Re: What's Needed To Become An Ethical Hacker by valzey(m): 12:33pm On Apr 11, 2019
Searching how to hack websites or how to hack Wi-Fi etc..would definitely bring up some tutorial which you can follow and hack but you will never understand why.

So I advice you learn a programming language to open up your brain, learn how networking, ports and how HTTP protocol work.

Once you know a little on making, you can understand a lot on breaking. It will set you apart from the rest.

Pretty sure nobody will follow your advice! They all wanna hack but they wanna do it with the click of a button.
