damn. Thanks, that makes more sense. Sometimes I wonder how the first hackers would teach temselves to do that. Just like Tesla messed with electricity, you must have such a great knowledge and understanding of your field to become that sort of genious

Well that's pretty simple: Being a giant nerd, wanting to understand how stuff works and having a mindset for figuring out how to abuse/exploit/modify those things. Thing is, they were working with much less complex systems than today so the prerequisites were way lower. And then there came the one thing I forgot to mention: a willingness to keep up with new developments. Shit's changing quickly...

A hammer is an important part of a blacksmith's toolkit. Doesn't mean I get to call myself a blacksmith if I know how to beat things with a hammer.

Yes, but you'd be a shit blacksmith if you didn't have a hammer.

I don't see anyone saying "LOL hackers don't use ddos" I see people saying "LOL ddos doesn't make you a hacker."

you seem to know some stuff about it, do you think you could recommend something to get me started into hacking? just for pure curiosity
#66 - fragman (10/25/2016) [-]
Not really... I mean there are tutorials which are pretty useless because the paint-by-numbers approach really doesn't work in that field.
Then there are courses that will cover way more and are actually useful, but cost around 1.5-10k. Some of them are good, some of them are a bit shit. But all share one thing: They require prior knowledge.
Mainly this would be in no particular order: Networking basics (TCP/IP, Routing/Switching, Firewalls), basic OS understanding of Windows and Linux, being comfortable using a shell and familiarity with at least shell scripting, ideally more advanced languages as well (e.g. Python, Perl, C++), Web technologies etc.

I work on the defensive side of things, which gives me the basic knowledge of all those topics. Which would make this a good starting point. But in order to actually be successful as a hacker, you'd need to take that to a whole new level.

DDoS and DoS attacks can serve as a useful distraction. Staff will be so focused on the DDoS/DoS that, during the chaos, someone can sneak their way in.
#28 - fragman (10/25/2016) [-]
Yeah, which is pretty much an example of what I meant by "useful tool".
There are other applications for it as well in regards to hacking, but let's not get too deep here...

The point is that being a DDoSer and being a hacker aren't the same thing

You're just over analyzing the comparison
#23 - anon (10/25/2016) [-]
okay but what's the point of making a comparrison when it just doesn't make any sense?
#9 - fragman (10/25/2016) [-]
True. But DDoS is usually an important part of a hacker's toolkit which people seem to forget. Originally "public opinion" of people simply using DDoS was "hacker", now the pendulum is swinging back and it's seen as just a script kiddie tool. Both those viewpoints are equally far off the reality...
