Hello World --- My Goals and Contact Information

Hello world, I felt like this was a fitting title for the obligatory "first post" on my hack-blog.

Well, thank you for coming, whether it be through a Google search, a personal link, or any other means.

This blog will focus on my learning experience with network and computer security (or information security and forensics, as my major states), and will provide simple and easy to understand walk-throughs, explanations, and newbie help for starting Pentesting (penetration testing), exploiting, and general hacking functions.

I'll be using Ubuntu (Linux) with Backtrack 5 throughout this, but if someone requests a walkthrough or anything I do on Windows XP/Vista/7 I might be able to write it for those operating systems. I don't own iOS and probably will never, so don't bother asking for that; just get 7 or Linux.

Contact Me
Ask me questions, report any mistakes, submit articles and walkthroughs, or chat about netsec!
