Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I've been looking to get into hacking, but I am unsure of where to start. Would you guys be able to point me in the right direction? Anything online would be helpful, preferably free. I have programming experience with Java, C++, Prolog, Assembly, BASIC, and Ada.
I would prefer if these tutorials had some way of setting up virtual machines and how to break into those, as I don't want to do anything illegal. I just want to learn how to hack, as I'm interested in getting into the field of network security (eventually). This is something I'd like to do on my own in addition to my course load.
