You Cannot Be A Programmer Without Ethical Hacking by nurain150(m): 9:39am On Aug 22
I mean guys in my career part as an hacker I had seen several stupid mistakes a programmer made in their codes.Why how would you write a database program without knowing how it can be attacked.How can you write a program that input user input for data computation without proper validation.How can you fight for XXS with blacklisting words in input field How can you do the same for Sqli injection.I mean how can you store passwords as plaintext.To be honest all programmers cannot be good at what they do expect they are hackers themsellf.Takelesss of buffer overflow.

I couldn't agree more. You're very right.

You shouldn't blame them, most of us don't read function documentation to know how to protect against or better still not use the vulnerable method. It takes years of experience in a language to better to attain such level. How many programmers read security blogs?

When you learn, you learn all pros and cons.

How would you learn MYSQL or any SQL and not know about SQL injection?

How on earth would anyone store passwords as plain text even in development.

You don't need to be an expert to know about all these vulnerability, it's common programming sense.

Frameworks to the rescue. cheesy

Yes SQL injection is a wide topic.I bypassed a CTF login form with this payload
'union select 'gg' from admins where a equal a.
Some use crazy concat.
But altleastmost programmers that even have this sense still stores password with md5 hash....Very easy to find.No password policy or rules

Buffer overflow is also a programming error na failure to check length of expected data type it common with native development .Most exploitation is programming error wether it IOT web native Android IOS or anything we could think about.Buffer overflow is like a virus we can only suppress It.Lol

They curb buffer overflow with some stack and heap guard. But memory still leaks.

You don't learn hacking. Hacking is a skill for being a seasoned programmer, when you code to a certain level, you start seeing beyond the blocks.

Either from third party or so. Programs are bound to error.

Say it again.You can't just break into a website you don't own Bro.see cybercrime act 2015 as enshrined in our constitution.And perhaps hackera are only popular among their fellow ...Because unlike programmers they only break things.And not build.But even it an hacker codes .He codes a tool to. break things and not constructive build like nairaland so that makes them unknown and perharps most hackers prefer annoymity bc of sensitive nature of their work

Fine let's forget about websites you've hacked , how much have you made from your hacking exploits?
If it doesn't translate to money then one shouldn't take you seriously.
From your conversations you don't seem to be referring to Ethical Hacking.

Moreover, knowing how to secure your software to an extent doesn't make you a hacker, it makes you a good programmer.

Ethical hacking is the foundation into the world of cyber security.. you grow by choosing a career path either as a LPT ( license penetration tester) or a VA ( vulnerability analyst ) CISA ( certified information system analyst) and so on. More over the dude is just talking about database and maybe password attacks and nothing more.. I don’t know if he’s an ethical hacker or hacker..

Secondly you can make a lot of head way when it comes to the world of cyber security strung from vulnerability analysis for company to pen testing depending. However for a country like Nigeria it will be more suitable if a Devop skill is added to that.

Ps: am a certified ethical hacker @zeustheripper on Twitter

Bro okay it fine .Don't worry about how much I had make but I can say hacking is more lucrative than programming read hackerone bug reports and see how much bounties are claimed.
I am ethical hacker and not a programmer in a view.In another am a programmer and both an ethical hacker .It is an kind of logic hope you get.In my career path you learn something in an attacker perspective the. Mitigated

I actually just register for a Nairaland Account today and don't really know how it works but I just got into Ethical Hacking last month with a little python and shell knowledge.... And I've been in a lot of Hackers' Forum on both WhatsApp and Telegram, yeah real Ethical Hackers.... But the only thing I actually miss is the acquaintance atmosphere, all this forum are highly dominated by either White or the Indians.... I'm not in any real Ethical Hacking forum dominated by Nigerians before and I actually wants to be. I believe we'll understand each other better and it would giveore chances to advice concerning the Country's System e.g In an Indian forum I was in this morning, an 11th grade guy is moving towards 12th grade computer science and he actually wants to prepare for that along with an OSCP Exam. The main point is he got lot of advice from experienced Big bros on the field because they all understand the country's educational system and how it can disturb him and it really helped him... So please Big Bros in the forum, if you have an active forum on WhatsApp or Telegram for Native Ethical Hackers, add this Junior brother o�� +2349083271932 or You can even go ahead and create one, I'll campaign for you�. I can write really long articles ���
