9 Easy Ways To Learn To Hack (Angelina Jolie Not Included)
The recent WannaCry ransomware attack is yet another reminder that the world is desperately lacking in cyber security experts. Although the hackers only made about $100,000 in total with their NSA-pilfered skeleton key, it's terrifying to think that you could easily be the target of the next extortion attempt de jour. Instead of resigning yourself to eventual victimhood, take a look at the Super-Sized Ethical Hacking Bundle to learn how to exact brutal justice on the web's slimiest crooks. Who knows, maybe you can even make a career out of it? This whole bundle is worth over $1,000, but you can get it in our store for just $43, and it includes the following courses:
Bug Bounty: Web Hacking
Just because Facebook and Google are the heart and face of the internet (try to guess which is which) doesn't mean their apps are completely free of vulnerabilities. But both of those companies would really like you to think so, which is why they offer such high prices for disclosing exploits. Bug Bounty: Web Hacking will teach you how to legally hack web applications and eventually earn the praises of the Mark Zuckerbergs and Larry Pages of the world.
CompTIA Security + Exam Preparation
Sure, some cyber security professionals were raised in the criminal underbelly, but throwing yourself into the Dark Web without knowing what you're doing is basically asking to get placed on a government watchlist. Luckily, there is a safe, legitimate way to gain industry experience and demonstrate your hacking prowess. This material will teach you how to safeguard businesses from malicious actors, and perhaps more importantly, give you the credentials to prove it. (Sweet vinyl hacker clothing not included.)
Ethical Hacking Using Kali Linux From A To Z
Kali is an entire Linux distribution that's designed for breaking into computer networks, password cracking, and digital forensics. If you need to stress-test your company's infrastructure, track down data theft, or pull a shift in the Batcave while Batman's out on patrol, this course will teach you everything you need to know. But you'll have to think up clever bat-puns on your own.
Ethical Hacking From Scratch To Advanced Techniques
It doesn't matter how many hacking tools you have or how many red pills you take; nobody can automatically read the numbers in the Matrix. However, this collection will give you a general overview of common security practices, plus some cool tricks that'll make understanding those numbers a whole lot easier. It's not as cool as dodging bullets in slow-mo, but you will know the exact time to overflow the buffer. So there's that.
Learn Social Engineering From Scratch
While you might imagine hackers solving complex codes and brute-forcing protected logins while typing on three keyboards at once, the vast majority of digital breaches are simply tricking someone into handing over their password. There are plenty of paths to becoming a digital impostor and extracting someone's personal information, whether it involves faking a bank email or pretending to be a mod in a Runescape chat room. You can learn the most effective ones and how to protect yourself from them with this course.
Learn Website Hacking And Penetration Testing From Scratch
Another way hackers can gain unauthorized entry into web hosts is by sneaking in bits of code where they aren't expected, sort of like propping open a door by sticking a coin in the hinge, or like the chip the government implanted into your brain when you were born. (Shoot, you weren't supposed to know about that last part.) Learn how to find all the nooks and crannies of a website in this introductory course.
Hands-On, Interactive Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking
On-the-job training is always nice, but you save yourself a lot of anti-anxiety prescriptions if you have had hands-on experience before your boss is breathing that morning's coffee down your neck. This course allows you to follow, in real time, each stage of a penetration testing engagement, so you are already battle-tested by the time you've hit the job market.
Cyber Security Volume I: Hackers Exposed
This might sound like the title for a movie starring naked computer workers, but it is in fact one of the best cyber security courses on the market. You'll learn how state agents engage in clandestine surveillance, how to avoid their seemingly limitless reach, and even brush up on the Dark Web.
Complete WiFi And Network Ethical Hacking Course 2017
Despite how clever your WiFi network's name is, it can't always stop unauthorized entry. (Though we imagine the name "This WiFi has a virus!" to be a pretty good deterrent.) Learn how to secure your own home network and how attackers can do damage without even being connected by checking out the Complete WiFi and Network Ethical Hacking Course 2017. And maybe change your password to something besides "pass1234" while you're at it.
