Unlocking this for a sec to clarify something:

Not all hacking is illegal. There are three main categories of hacking, white hat (legal hacking), black hat (illegal hacking), and grey hat (iffy hacking).

White hat hacking is done with consent of the program owner, therefore making it legal. Usually it is done to expose security flaws in a program and this is a real career that exists (it's called ethical hacking).

Black hat hacking is done without permission and is typically used for malicious things.

Grey hat hacking is also without permission but it is "good-spirited". Grey hat hacking is illegal like black hat hacking. Depending on who you ask, it might be plain old black hat hacking anyways.

Anyways, discussing any sort of "hacking" that involves breaking computer systems/programs, no matter if white/grey/black hat, is still not allowed. Thank you.

Discussion about hacking is not allowed on Repl Talk

if you want to be a white hat hacker search 'how to be an ethical-hacker'

Hacking is bad why you ask this i mean it's fun for using console and destroying it but no

@LTI2 Ya ever heard of pen-testing or ethical hacking?

lol r u a 5 yr old xD

Starter kit: Kali Linux, knowledge of a lot of languages, especially python, and someway to learn (youtube videos, udemy, ect). FYI, you won't get to do like DOS attacks on your first day of hacking, learning is a very long process that takes years or so, and you need to know a lot about what you are hacking. If you can't be persistent or are impatient, you might as well not start. Also, It is absolutely nothing like hacking in the movies, it's wayyy more slow and boring, so no, you won't be hacking anything in just a few seconds. As for what you can do with it, if you are a white-hat, you can maybe earn some money pen-testing for some company, but don't expect a lot as a beginner. A good resource for that is HackerOne.

Yea totally, hacking is pretty much suicide, but it's always good to know in case you get hacked. @AtharvAttri

AtharvAttri (4)

@JosephSanthosh IKR! Too many legal problems, and very little payoff. Most of the time you don't even find something, I mean they hire some of the best hackers out there, what I am I gonna find that they could not!

Dude, whut the heck.

@LoganReaper That question isn't a technical coding question. I wouldn't recommend asking it here in the first place though.

LoganReaper (4)

@Nefomemes i mean dont hackers code and were do i ask

Leroy01010 (370)

he's a white hat hacker @Nefomemes

mwilki7 (1104)

Hack what in particular?

mwilki7 (1104)

@LoganReaper
What do you want to hack using brute force?

mwilki7 (1104)

@LoganReaper
I don't think you'll get very far with big sites like twitter using brute force. There's always security measures such as cooldowns, caption verification thingies (aka captcha's) to make sure brute force doesn't work.

If you're interested in the subject in general, here are some websites that go over some vulnerabilities:

Cross-site scripting (aka XSS or code injection):
https://portswigger.net/web-security/cross-site-scripting

Cross Site Request Forgery (aka CSRF):
https://owasp.org/www-community/attacks/csrf#:~:text=Cross%2DSite%20Request%20Forgery%20(CSRF,which%20they're%20currently%20authenticated.

Man in the middle attack:

Format String Attack:
https://www.netsparker.com/blog/web-security/format-string-vulnerabilities/

Buffer Overflow Attack:
https://www.imperva.com/learn/application-security/buffer-overflow/

Do avoid trying any of these on commercial applications (basically don't do this on real websites, you could get into serious trouble).

Don’t, it’s illegal

LoganReaper (4)

@CodeLongAndPros i want to be white hat hacker

CodeLongAndPros (1369)

@LoganReaper And do you mean “cracking”, since I’m a hacker by all rights.

LoganReaper (4)

@CodeLongAndPros if that means helping companys seeing their exsplots

CodeLongAndPros (1369)

@LoganReaper Well you’ll need to know Linux, python, what vulnerabilitys are in what and how to exploit them

LoganReaper (4)

@CodeLongAndPros lol yea linux im on crome so yea but it school computer so admin :( and its cool you moderater

CodeLongAndPros (1369)

@LoganReaper yes it is. And “crome”s a browser…

CodeLongAndPros (1369)

@LoganReaper Ah, the terrible “crome Os”

LoganReaper (4)

@CodeLongAndPros i know right i want to emelate windows

CodeLongAndPros (1369)

@LoganReaper Oh ew, that’s worse. But literally you have to install a VM of Linux on Linux, like what?

Whacko (225)

@CodeLongAndPros He can be a good hacker, that's a job. Like if somebody lost a very important file, then they can hire a hacker to retrieve it.

Codemonkey51 (864)

That's a data recoverer, files aren't wiped when deleted just there entry is removed from the list of files (oversimplification), the data is still there just is harder to get too @JavaMaster1

JosephSanthosh (1192)

No it's not...it's not if you're doing for educational purposes or just for fun and only ur accounts. If you do it on bitcoin or a thing like that then it's illegal. @CodeLongAndPros

CodeLongAndPros (1369)

@JosephSanthosh Well ofc I though he was meaning Cracking

rediar (351)

@CodeLongAndPros python for hacking??? I mean

rediar (351)

@JosephSanthosh im not sure you understand what bitcoin is???

LoganReaper (4)

@rediar a type of digital currency in which a record of transactions is maintained and new units of currency are generated by the computational solution of mathematical problems, and which operates independently of a central bank.

Codemonkey51 (864)

Woah so cool stealing from google to say you know what it is:

To prove you know bitcoin 1) how does blockchain relate to bitcoin, 2) how does block chain work

Do not steal the answers from google this time, if you know what bitcoin is they are fairly simple questions

@LoganReaper

LoganReaper (4)

@Codemonkey51 i know but if i the def from google lol

JosephSanthosh (1192)

Oh! Lol, yea cracking is only crackheads, i got cracked so many times, so i'm trying to plan a way to back fire their hack. Do you have any ideas? @CodeLongAndPros

JosephSanthosh (1192)

Haha Man! You'd be a an awesome detective! Like low-key between us, you're a spy. @Codemonkey51

JosephSanthosh (1192)

Ummmm, do I? If I didn't why would I say it... *confused @rediar

JosephSanthosh (1192)

@LoganReaper @CodeLongAndPros @Codemonkey51 Lol, I have to mention, I don't we rly helped this person out, but I have to say this was fun!

Whacko (225)

@Codemonkey51 Exactly. My computer lab teacher once was a good hacker.

LoganReaper (4)

@JavaMaster1 can two people be in a repl at once

LoganReaper (4)

@JavaMaster1 can two people use one repl

Whacko (225)

@LoganReaper That's the amazing thing about repl.it

Whacko (225)

@LoganReaper That's how I do it with all my students.
And nice profile pic, by the way.

ridark (91)

lol

Woah so cool stealing from google to say you know what it is

@Codemonkey51

LoganReaper (4)

@JavaMaster1 ok and thxs i love yours dope

LoganReaper (4)

@JavaMaster1 im exsited to learn html because i want to use it for school project

Whacko (225)

@LoganReaper What? Oh, wait. You're 12. I'm only 10.

LoganReaper (4)

@JavaMaster1 like your 10 and you can code stuff i can just make words

Whacko (225)

@LoganReaper hahaha. That's what the other guy said.

LoganReaper (4)

@JavaMaster1 looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool

Whacko (225)

@LoganReaper H∀H∀HH∀H∀HH∀H∀H∀H∀H∀H

Whacko (225)

@LoganReaper ʏᴏᴜ ᴡɪʟʟ ɴᴇᴠᴇʀ ʙᴇᴀᴛ ᴍᴇ

LoganReaper (4)

@JavaMaster1 im in music so i wont be on

PlaySoccer (40)

Hacking can be used for good and can be used for bad things too. What do you want to do with it?

LoganReaper (4)

@PlaySoccer i want to have my brother make an account and see if i can get into it lol

ironblockhd (370)

@LoganReaper for this you're right about needing brute force, it will only work if the website has poor brute force protection and he has a bad password, i wont go into details since its illegal lol

LoganReaper (4)

@ironblockhd lol thats ok i think i know enough

DavidShen2 (55)

What do you mean by "hacking"? Malicious hacking?

LoganReaper (4)

@DavidShen2 i dont know like brute force

DavidShen2 (55)

@LoganReaper Oh. I don't know much about hacking. However, I do know that that form of "hacking" is illegal, so I encourage you to not to continue down that path.

LoganReaper (4)

@DavidShen2 i would be a white hat hacker
