I'm 133ch11f3, and i'm in high school. I love computers and I like hacking my friends' computers when I can. I have used lots of programs before, but most of them dont work. A friend of mine told me of hacking sites with challenges, and i found valhalla by googling for those challenges. I hope i can learn a lot and become ub3r 1337
I don't know if ub3r 1337 is the best word to describe what you'll become when you learn computer security, but is good to see people willing to learn things and become good.
My best advice for you is to start programming. Get an easy language like python and study how to build your own tools. That'll teach you a lot of details you must know if you wanna learn computer security.
Once you learn, go deeper, and pick a lower level language like C and build more tools. C is great because you'll see every detail, especially if you build network tools and make use of lots of sockets.
I'm telling you that because I used to be a script kiddy many years ago when I started (approx. 2008), it's the natural course, but programming makes you be more mature, you know.
Hope you have lots of fun around here.
Hi 133ch11f3 and welcome to Valhalla!
I will just assume that you hacked your friends' pcs with their permissions. Beside that welcome to Valhalla.
