Hakin9 Open - How To Become a Hacker

Hakin9 Open - How to become a hacker.pdf

Dear readers,

Due to popular demand we decided to prepare a special issue dedicated to those of you that seek an answer to the ultimate question: “How to become a hacker?”.

When you refer that question to Google you get an astonishing number of 360,000 results, each promising to make you a cybersecurity expert. Among those are such beauties as “How To Become a Hacker - EPIC HOW TO“, “How to Become a Hacker: 12 Steps (with Pictures)”, and “How To Become A Hacker In 15 Minutes -- Or In 140 Characters Or Less“. The first is a video, the second’s a WikiHow article, and the third is a Dark Reading post about a cybersecurity awareness campaign from 2010. We thought about it long and hard, and decided to take another route to give you answers - plural, because there is no single correct one.

We invited 13 specialists from cyber security and hacking fields to join this project. They answered more than 20 questions about hacking, chosen by us from the dozens we get every day. They presented their opinions and experience. They made lists of their favorite online communities and resources.

While reading this issue you will learn what is the best tool for hackers. Is Kali Linux truly the best OS for your hacking career? What about programming? Is it truly that important to have this skill while becoming a hacker? All of that and more, from 13 different points of view, can be found in this issue.

Happy Holidays!
