Polls on our Facebook group have shown that there are many people getting started with hacking.

There are many great courses to master hacking, however, many courses, and especially the good ones, cost quite a lot of money.

We want to try a community effort to create a FREE hacker training, our idea is simple, to create a training course that will teach a beginner to become a powerful hacker.

That's great news!

Are there any specific subjects you want to cover?

I'll add you to the list!

Welcome to the team!

What are subjects of hacking that you would like to make a training for?

Next weekend I'll start making a ToDo list, for chapters, then we can assign chapters to anyone who feels they can write a nice course for it :)

Cheers,

HcH

Alright! I've made a list of chapters for the courses we could start to develop.

I've assigned stuff that I can write to myself, but if you see any part that you like, just say it and we change the topicwriter!

@Daniel Brasil, what would you suggest to add that you can write about or what parts would you like to write ?

I've looked for the list of chapters and it looks quite fine.
But as many members here or into EHVN are of low level like me, maybe a chapter about a programing language like Python (and a bit about Javascripts) could be useful?
Just the "ABC", then everyone will be able to learn by himself, in place to ask on the group: "What is the better one?"
But you probably already included it somewhere..

My part, ATM. Honestly I feel quite impressed about the responsability to make an entire chapter, but
..as it is about "Ethical" hacking, I've thinked of something to make very good passwords without any "friction", remembering nothing as it is a suggestion of mnemotechnical technics, .. with a touch of (very) more.

Maybe "legal information"? But it can change, according to the country..

It is just the very beginning.. We need more active members.. (THANK YOU, anon112358!)
I'll think about this for some days but waiting this, "my work" is about the post on EHVN.. Just hoping that I won't be excluded cauz of harassment..

Wish a nice day for all the members..  :)
Peace/Paz

It is the very beginning of our community.
Good idea, no?
If you agree, you can help to start just by leaving a comment.
Above 150 comments,  "the status" of this post will change on the forum.
If you can participate to the community effort, just giving one hour a week of your time, it will be greatly appreciated.
Many good members on this forum, a good part of chapters is already covered.
If you feel "easy" with anoter one, you can begin it. Another one can perticipate, and so on..
Someone to help me about "Legal information"?
Thanks by advance
Peace/Paz

OK.. As cracking passwords is part of pentesting, the oposite = having safe passwords following rules of
abcd + ABCD + 1234 + #@~\, very long, everithing mixed, changed every month, diferents for your e-mails, Facebloob, with something exotic that I don't see everyday, And nearly nothing to remember (so, without any "friction phenomenon", the little security businesses nightmare) can be useful?
I claim! :)
Here on Sunday maximum.

Cool! And more and more companies are enforcing "Password Sentences" like "[email protected]", considering the length will make bruteforce harder.

I'll assign the password section to you!  :android-nerd:

I created this chapter:

Chapter 7: Ways to protect against hackers

Here you can make a subchapter for better passwords :-)

"[email protected]" as a password is the big laugh of my day, Thank you!

Even not knowing exactly how works a bruteforce, I seriously think that my little exotic idea could make headache to them.
Here Sunday maximum, I apologize for not earlier because of my crazy life.
.
Like the tittle of your new chapter.. It can be a big one.
CRACKERS ON OUR FORUM ARE WELCOMED TO JOIN !!

Hahaha, glad I could give you a laugh my friend!  :-D

Bruteforce is quite something to comprehend, don't worry, just write it piece by piece and you'll be fine! Also, we can audit the chapters that we have written to improve our articles with info that others can add (that's the great thing of this community effort!)

Ops! Really sorry but I discover the forum and don't know ATM how to do a subchapter.

Passwords.. Everybody here knows how to do a good one:
A mix of lowercase and capital letters, numbers, alphanumeric characters.
It must be long and regularly changed.

"[email protected]" as a company's "password sentence"?
It is long but this isn't "a mix".
It is well known that women are making their ones differently than men.
.. and that when a number is added, the most frequently it is at the end.
Very often.. how to say? "1974".. Is it a year special for you?
And in this example nothing is showing that it is changed just once a month.

No. We'll do serious passwords with nearly nothing to remember as promised.
With my little "exotic" thing at the end. (It works with this dinosaur of Windows. Probably not your OS -you can make some searches for your own-, but most of the companies still use "the fossil".)

Here, just a mnemotical direction. Adapt it to your own desires.

The so called "friction phenomenon", main internal enemy of companies security is the difficulty of employees in remembering good passwords.
There is almost nothing to remember, just something to understand.

First step: that will be "the heart" of your differents passwords.
Open your word processor and look at your keyboard.
Probably a "QWERTY" or an "AZERTY" with numbers just above theses letters.
If you have a "Qwerty", just type on these keys: Q2W3E4
(with two fingers it is ergonomic and can be really fast.)
You should obtain something like this> qéw"e'
then, repeat exactly the same thing with "Caps-Lock" or "Maj".
> something like this (I can't be sure, as my keyboard is different):
qéw"e'Q2W3E4

With the entire QWERTY, it'll be like this:
qéw"e'r(t-yèQ2W3E4R5T6Y7

This is only the basic principle: in place of the keys "QWERTY", use the name of your woman, kid..
With 2, 3, 4, ..,
For me, it could be:
jéo"s'e(p-hèi_nçeàJ2O3S4E5P6H7I8N9E0

We had only used the Maj or Caps-lock key at the end, nothing with the "Alt Gr"..
In case of QWERTY,`the corresponding numbers: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 + Alt Gr added at the end will give to us a nice final "heart" like that:
qéw"e'r(t-yèQ2W3E4R5T6Y7~#{[|

The passwords must be diferent on your e-mail, Facebloob account, etc?
Changed every month is OK?
As most people add the numbers in the end, let's do the opposite for the rest.

You have only one e-mail (not good) @ gmail?
You can begin your password with the the first two letters: "gm"
(in lowercase letters, we are not going to complicate our life.)
Yahoo? > "ya". Facebook? > "fa".
You have diferent Gmail? You already know what to do.

Your password must be changed every month. Why not?
January > 01
February > 02
../..
December > 12

If your access is denied when you are logging on an account that you don't use very much, just try with the "code" of the preceding month. Surely the opportunity to actualize it.

Now, my little thing. We'll use the "Alt Numpad input method" or Alt code for only ONE character:
By pressing the "Alt" key + 228, 229, 231, 232, .. you'll get a greek letter.
Two different alphabets..

Take your time to try, test, "choose" (and adapt to your possibilities) the rivers of words just above. You'll find your way by making it simple.
Maybe this "Alt code" will be the only thing that you'll have really to remember?

As a noob+1 just happy to participate, I don't really know but I wonder from a long time ago who uses two different keyboards to make a password.
I believe that I am at the (very) right place to know if an unical letter could be annoying for theses brute force.

Apologies for my bad english.
From both France and Brazil with love.
