This is a lesson for new Hackers. Now please don't take this text as "I hack into 
systems." NO, I don't think it's right to break into systems, but I like to spread the knowledge.

(1) First, I'll teach you about UNIX which many Corporations use. To identify a UNIX operating 
system it will welcome you with:

login:
password:

Now you put in defult logins. Here are some:

LOGIN    PASSWORD
-----------------
root      root
sys       sys
daemon    daemon
uucp      uucp
tty       tty
test      test
unix      unix
bin       bin
adm       adm
admin     admin
who       who
learn     learn
uuhost    uuhost
nuucp     nuucp
finger    finger
games     games
user      user

(2) Once you gain access it will give you a prompt. Here are some examples.
$
>
%
# (Means you have root)

(3) Now you can enter some commands. But first get the password file. Type in the command 

cat /etc/passwd

This will get the password file. Once you have the password file then crack the encrypted 
passwords. If there is a token (* ! X) then the admin has shadowed the passwords and you can't 
crack it from that file. You have to find the password file with the encrypted passwords. Just
give the command:

locate shadow

This will sometimes give you the password file with the encrypted password. 

(4) Now after you have access here are some commands you can do.

cd................Change Directory
cp................Copy File(s)
cat...............Print Out A File Onto The Screen
mv................Move File(s)
mkdir.............Make A Directory
locate............Find A File(s)
ed................Editor
vi................Editor
ls -a.............List ALL Files

(5) So now just explore. Don't mess anything up. Don't spread virues and emailbomb people. 
Don't delete files or modify files. So listen to my motto.
		"EXPLORE, NOT DESTROY"

Okay. That's my lesson for now. Look for a new Newbie Hackers Lesson next month.
