So In the future I will do an all encompassing tutorial on what you should do in order to get started with hacking. But In this article I’m going to give you a list of great resources that helped me get from beginner to intermediate (at which point you should have a pretty clear idea of what you need to do).
By this point you’re somewhat of an intermediate. You’ve got the basics of a few coding languages, you’ve got an understanding of Linux, networking and you have an idea of what a vulnerability is. Metasploit unleashed will teach you how to actually use vulnerabilities to compromise a system. This is where the real hacking begins. On top of that you’ll learn one of the quintessential industry standard hacking tools Metasploit. After you’ve completed metasploit unleashed go check out VulnHub for some vulnerable VMs that you can practice your skills on. Start with the tried and true ones like Mr. Robot and Kioptrix so you can follow along the write ups (tutorials) until you gain a thorough understanding.
And did I mention that all these resources are FREE? yep. You don’t have to spend a dime to become a master hacker. Don’t listen to anyone who tells you that you do.
And after doing all that you’ll be a pro. except not really.
