1a. Introduction
If you wan't to be a hacker then  Learning things on your own, Asking questions to 
help you, and a curious mind "is" a start. If you ask the question 
"How do you hack?"  chances are you will not get the answer.  
You can't learn how to hack in one day and yet some people go out
 and acclaim themselves hackers and chances are it's probaly the 
first time they have ever touched a computer. Hacking is the knowledge
of many things put together. It takes time and pateince and it's 
something that you would be better off just trying to learn on your own.
 That way you can learn at your own pace and you make sure you 
understand one thing before moving on to learning another. Well 
since you came in search of hacking knowledge I am going to give it to you.
This text is not going to make you a hacker because only you can do that.


1b. Explanation

Hacking was once just someone who sat down hours on end programing If
you were making a program you were considerd to be hacking at a program
if you found a bug in a program or a way to make it shorter that was also
considerd hacking.  Now there are different classes of hacking.
"Hacking is a willingness to make technology accessible and open."
Meaning you believed that all information should be kept open (free) to the public
and not hidden in secret. Hacking is wanting to learn something then taking it to
the fullest extent by wanting to learn more about that thing, all the cracks,
codes ,and operations. When a hacker learns a programming language he learns how
to use the language fluently he/she just doesnt learn some of the language he/she 
goes beyond it. Hacking is not email bombs, damaging systems
and, virii. In a true sense we are "Knowledage Seekers" but labled by the media 
hackers, and phreaks. So we proudly hold the name "Hackers", and continue doing what we do best....


To hack a system you have to know the system you are working with, and others of its
 kind.

1c. Hackers Ethics

1.	Do not intentionally damage any system.

2.	Do not alter any system files other than the ones needed to ensure your escape 	from detection and your future access (Trojan Horses, Altering Logs, and the like 	are all necessary to your survival for as long as possible.)

3.	Do not leave your (or anyone else's) real name, real handle, or real phone number
	on any system that you access illegally. They "can" and will track you down from 	your handle!

4.	Be careful who you share information with. Feds are getting trickier. Generally, 	if you don't know their voice phone number, name, and occupation or haven't spoken 	with them voice on non-info trading conversations, be wary.

5.	Do not leave your real phone number to anyone you don't know. This includes 	logging on boards, no matter how k-rad they seem. If you don't know the sysop, 	leave a note telling some trustworthy people that will validate you.

6.	Do not hack government computers. Yes, there are government systems that are safe 	to hack, but they are few and far between. And the government has infinitely more 	time and resources to track you down than a company who has to make a profit and
	justify expenses.

7.	Don't use codes . . .unless there is "NO" way around it (you don't have a local 	telenet or tymnet outdial and can't connect to anything 800...) If you use codes
	long enough, you will get caught. Period.



Hacker Ethic
============

In the book _HACKERS; Heros of the Computer Revolution_, by Steven Levy the "Hacker Ethic" was first put into concrete words. This ethic follows; 
* Access to computers - and anything which might teach you something about the way the   world works - should be unlimited and total. Always yield to the Hands-On-Imperative! 
* All information should be free. 
* Mistrust authority- promote de-centralization. 
* Hackers should be judged by their Hacking, not bogus criteria such as degrees, age,   race, or position. 
* You can create art and beauty on a computer. 
* Computers can change your life for the better. 

1e. Procedure-

Things you should start off with>
A Computer
Port Scanner
War Dailer
Internet Access
Telnet
A Unix/Linux based OS
books on different Os's
Any type of Documentation on Networking

A computer- The most important tool a hacker can have.

Port Scanner - A Port Scanner does exactly what its name says it does.  It scans various ports on a client and compiles a list of open ports.

War Dailer- Used to dail numbers in a selected range.

Internet Access-  The Inter"net" is a large network which connects a user to a huge number of serveral other networks and computers.
	 
Telnet- is a program that allows a user to connect to a remote host. 

===================================================================================

The above information and resources will definitly help you in your quest for
knowledge and the "hacker" title.  You should also learn programing languages
such as basic, Assembly, C++, or Perl.  Programming plays a big part in 
hacking. People who use email bomber's, nuker's or other programs like those
think they are hacking.  In that case the program is'nt the hack, but the programming
behind the program would be.  People need to relize that if they want to become 
"hackers" they must rely on self instinct, self knowledge, and self curiousity, 
and not petty little EmailBombing or AutoHacking programs which will actually get you
no where. 
 
If you have the ability and know how to create a program that will help your hacking ability then more power to you.

=====================================================================================

The question that annoy's all hackers "Teach me to Hack".

Do not ask this question.  There's not a day that goes by where someone doesn't
ask me that question on irc.  People logon to a irc hackers channel expecting
to learn how to hack, and expecting a personal mentor to be their and guide
them through their little "learning to be a hacker stage".  To me hacking is
a way of life its a statement, and a mental mind state(state of being). Only 
you can truly clasify yourself as a hacker. Instead of taking time to logon
to a channel and ask the question "Teach me to hack" why not just go out
and read documentation, Browse the net, read books on networking, and computers.
Just read as much as you possible can. 

=====================================================================================

*-whois-*, 	*-nslookup-*,       *-ping-*,      *-finger*,         *-traceroute-*

Whois- Is mainly used to search for available domain names, but can also be used
to find out valuable information about a server.
Whois Gateway  http://www.htl-bw.ch/cgi-bin/whois
Also http://rs.internic.net/cgi-bin/whois
And even ' whois ' from the UNIX/Linux/FreeBSD etc prompt.

Nslookup-  Nslookup is used to lookup the domain name address from a IP Adress.

Ping- The ping command times how long it takes for a packet with a set amount of bytes
to travel from one client to another and back.

Finger- If an account is fingerable, fingering that account will tell you various 
information about that account. What information is returned varies from account to
account. Usually there is information such as the real name of the person whose 
account it is, the last time they logged into that account, if they have email in
their inbox and perhaps a "plan" file.


TraceRoute- The traceroute command works like ping, but it shows each router that it passes through on it's way to a set client.

1f. Definition

TRUE Definition of a Hacker
===========================
The term Hacker has been terribly distorted and misused by the American media for the past ten years. Now the international press has also taken up the use of the term to refer to *common criminals* who happen to use computers. These people are NOT Hackers in ANY sense of the word, and it's tragic that the average person in America has been exposed only to the corrupted meaning of the proud Hacker moniker.


HACKER, n., a term of endearment for someone with talent, knowledge, intelligence, and ingenuity, esp. concerning computer operations, networks, security concerns, etc. 

The following definition was found in a text file being distributed internationally through the INTERNET computer network; 

HACKER, n. 1. A person who enjoys learning the details of programming systems and how to stretch their capabilities, as opposed to most users who prefer to learn only the minimum necessary. 2. One who programs enthusiastically, or who enjoys programming rather than just theorizing about programming. 3. A person capable of appreciating hack value (q.v.). 4. A person who is good at programming quickly. Not everything a hacker produces is a hack. 5. An expert at a particular program, or one who frequently does
work using it or on it; example: "A SAIL hacker". (Definitions 1 to 5 are correlated, and people who fit them congregate.) 6. An inquisitive meddler who tries to discover information by poking around. Hence "password hacker", "network hacker". 
Note that NO definition defines a Hacker as a criminal. At their best, Hackers change the very fabric of an information-based society and advance the flow of technology. At their worst, Hackers can be mischievous pranksters or curious explorers. Hackers do NOT write harmful computer viruses. Sad, insecure, mediocre programmers do. Harmful viruses are completely against the Hacker Ethic.

2 ~What is means to be Elite?~


**Intro**
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
        I am amazed at how many times people come onto IRC or other chat 
systems and ask the same questions over, and over again.  "Are you elite?" or
"How Do I become elite?" I have quite simply become frustrated with these 
questions, for a few reasons actually. The purpose of this text is to answer 
those questions, and to save time (less people will hopefully end up asking 
them)! There are some fairly simple answers to those questions, and they will 
be discused in this text, I will be as clear as possible, but if you have any 
questions, do not hesitate to email me.  For those of you with short memory's,
I can be reached at nrage@hackersclub.com

**The Important Stuff**
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Ok, now onto the important part of this text file.  In this section I 
plan on giving the appropriate answers to the questions mentioned above.  

        Have you ever been asked if you are elite? Well, this text will hopefully 
help you in giving the correct response to that question.  First you have to 
understand what "beeing elite" is.  "Elite-ness" is like a state of being. 
Being one of the hacking comunities elite is (or at least should be an honour) 
It is not something that will come to you overnight, or even during the course 
of a week, or month.  It takes (usually) many hours throughout many years of learning 
and exploring to become elite.  
        And, if one day you realize, "Hey.. it's all coming together for me now!
I can do just about anything I want, I can hack just as good as (almost) anyone 
now." This may or may not be true.  But if it is, don't go bragging about it! 
Just because you are a good hacker, does not mean you aren't lame!  You could 
be the most elite in the world, and still have a very lame attitude (as it was 
pointed out by someone, one night on IRC)  There isn't really much of a point 
to telling everyone how good you are, who are you trying to impress? If your 
claiming to be some sort of "l33t h4xor" to be popular, it will not work! You'll 
probably just end up getting yourself busted! Hackers become popular because 
what they DO, not what they CLAIM to have done.
        I know the question is coming... Am I elite? Personally, I don't consider 
myself to be. There is still lots for me to learn! That doesnt meen I don't 
know anything, it just means I don't wanna accidently claim to be something, when 
I might not be! Hell, ask any "famous" or popular hacker, even though everyone 
knows they're just about as good as you can get, they will still not say they are 
elite. It is up to you to descide who is and who is not elite.  A person 
doesn't become known elite by claiming it, it is descided by the entire 
hacking community! 
        Look what you've made me do! I already started to answer the second 
question! "How do I become elite?"  
        Well, for sarters, dont make that your goal, all you'll do is end up 
being full of BS! What you have to do is countinously strive for knowledge! It 
is that lust for information that keeps the computer underground alive! Always 
be willing and eager to learn, it is extremely important that you can master 
everything possible! Download/buy linux, learn to program, etc..(but what you 
need to become a hacker is the topic of a whole other text, so i'm gonna leave 
it at that!) 
        Next time you think about asking a question that has to do with eliteness 
think back a little to what I have said here, in this text! Even if you ask 
the best hacker in the world if they are elite he'll probably just try to avoid 
the question.

3. ~Eploits~

--- Exploits ---

 Alot of people ask me about exploits, what they are, what they do, and how
they use them. Well, I'm writing this document to explain this for hopefully
my last time. It's just starting to bother me that I have to explain this
everytime I'm on irc, so i thought there should be a text explaining them.
Well, here it is.

          

--- What is a ' Exploit ' ? ---

 Well to explain this simply, a Exploit is a program that 'exploits' a bug
in a specific software. All exploits are different, they do different things
exploit different bugs, thats why exploits are allways program specific.
 Exploits are made to get root on different operating systems. They achive
this by exploiting a bug in software when the software is running as root.
In UNIX type OS's, software may have to run as root ( or UID 0 ) in order to
perform a specific task that cannot be performed as another user. So basically
the exploit crashes the software while running as root to give you the beautiful
root prompt.

 Well, now that I've answered questions one and two, I'm going to move on to
question 3.

--- How do I use a exploit? ---

 Since exploits are coded in C 99% of the time, you need a shell on the box
you are going to use the exploit on, OR, you need to be running the same OS as
the box you are attempting to hack. So basically, you need to put the source
code, or the binary in your shell accounts dir, ( you want to use a hacked, or
a shell not yours for this :) ) to put it on your shell, you can ftp to your
account and upload it that way, or you can use rz if you are using a dialup shell.
either way, i shouldnt have to explain those to things to much, its pretty easy.

 Once you have the exploit on the box you just need to compile it. Usually you
would compile the exploit like so;

blah:~/$gcc exploit.c

 that should compile your exploit. However, be aware that some exploit coders
are sneaky pests, and like to pick on people who dont know C, so they will
sometimes insert bugs into the exploit, thus uninabiling it to be compiled. So
it does help to know C, when playing with C :)

 After the compiling is done, you should beable to just run the exploit and its
work will be done when you see the root prompt. however, not all exploits are
the same, and might require different commandlines to get them to work.
                 
--- Where can I get some exploits? ---

Well 2 of the best places i have found for exploits are

http://get.your.exploits.com

and

http://www.rootshell.com

they are both great resources of exploits and other information.
