Which programming language is the best to learn to become a hacker?
I want to become an hacker. I'm a beginner and I don't know any programming language. What should be the best thing to start from?
depends what u wanna hack... for web learn php , Ruby or whatsoever it uses. for Android learn Linux n C for Android apps learn Java
Learn networking, C to learn how to fuck up code and create buffer overflows, unix shell as well as windows for server access, jscript, php, html and sql for web injections. Learn how and were data is stored and how webservers like apache are run. Learn how to use symmetric and asymmetric de/encryption tools. For writing 'hacks' i suggest learning an object oriented imperative language like java or C++. The language in which you write the programs doesn't really matter as long as you can acccess the listed interfaces with it. If you want to inject code you need to know the syntax of the application your a hacking ofcourse. And last but not least prepare yourself for court if you have any criminal intention without knowing jack shit about how to hide your tracks. If you are actually interested in IT security then i can recomment you the "hackthissite" website
The main part in hacking is finding out the weakness of your target, sometimes those are already know sometimes you have to find them yourself. Many people, doesnt matter if programers or webdevs, still don't care about it-sec so many websites suffer from the same basic weaknesses. Also you should get comfortable with firebug or similar browser extensions because they help searching through the source code. Also extensions for manipulating cookies and html requests directly are helpful.
