â€œ The Only True Guide to Learning How to Hack â€
originally by R4di4tion (his email, but it’s no longer in use), with a few updates by myself.
You stay up all night on the PC typing and typing. No, you’re not hacking. You’re begging someone on IRC to teach you how to hack! Let’s look at the facts:
- You’re a luser and you’re annoying. No one likes you if you ask others how to hack without taking the least amount of initiative.
- You’re not worthy of any title even resembling hacker, cracker, phreaker, etc., so don’t go around calling yourself that! The more you do, the less likely you are to find someone willing to teach you how to hack (which is an infinitesimal chance, any way).
- You’re wasting your time (if you couldn’t infer that in the first place). Many real hackers (not those shitty script kiddies) spend all their insomniac hours reading and, yes even, HACKING! (Hacking doesn’t necessarily (but usually does) mean breaking into another system. It could mean just working on your own system, BUT NOT WINDOWS ’9x (unless you’re doing some really menacing registry shit, in which case, you’re kind of cool).)
The Conscience of a Hacker
better known as “The Hacker’s Manifesto”.
A prolific and influential piece of writing, January 8, 1986:
Another one got caught today, it’s all over the papers. “Teenager Arrested in Computer Crime Scandal”, “Hacker Arrested after Bank Tampering”…
They’re all alike.
