Rules of Hacking..

Many of us out there think of ourselves as hackers but what is a REAL hacker....Well for those of you out there that play with college computers and local schools.... you are nothing !!  The making of a real hacker is being able to find a 'virgin' system and breking in and really doing someting to it...Hacking is not a term to be used lightly....Not only that but hacking is also something not to be taking lightly and flagrently....The reason for hacking....Well you don't hack into a computer just to wreck it or to destoy it even though it is phun, the reason to hack into a computer is to learn from it and conquer it... The idea of actually entering a system, without authorization is life line of hacking....those out there who know what hacking is knows what to do and what not to do but what are the basic rules......Well... here's a short more or less complete list of do's and don'ts on hacking:  
I. Do not purposely destroy a system -- What's the use of destorying a    system anyone....after it's destruction a system is no good and can    serve you no real purpose  
II. Do not leave real names or real handles anywhere on a system -- This is     the most important thing to might want to be recognized     for breaking a system but a signature or trademark can only mean your     apprehension  
III. Do not under no circumstance hack a system directly -- If you really      plan on hacking a system by running a program or script doing it      direct could be dangerous if someone see's you attempting to hack      your call be CAN be traced...The best thing to do in this situation is      to use a PBX or a outdial of some sort  
IV. Do not mess with accounts or defaults -- No matter what kind of urge     you get , by messing with someones account or messing with the system     defaults will let the business notice the intrusion of an outside     presence which more or less means a termination of your access  
V. Do not mess with anything you don't know -- Don't go around the system    trying junk you don't understand cause this can only lead to you messing    up the system or getting caught  
VI. Hack during the out of work hours -- By hacking late at night or early     in the morning to can escape the chances of someone watching you  
VII. Do not post your findings on local boards -- Do not post up new stuff      you find unless you really want swarms of people at it....A very      important thing to control is the urge to brag about systems you find      but this could lead to an abuse of the system which in turn leads to      the system shutdown....Don't get me wrong about not sharing knowledge      but you don't want to send something public unless you have made sure      that you have done all you wanted to do with the system  
That's more or less what you don't what to do....things you might want to do is:  
I. Set up a account for yourself -- By setting up an account for yourself    it will elimanate the chores of finding a backdoor to the system  
II. Leech files -- Another thing that should be done if possible is to     get as many 'interesting' files as you can since they could be useful     in later hacking quests  
III. Fix the security -- If you get a system that has a 'drop' password      you should really try to fix it so there is none to make life easier      for the following hackers who attempt to infiltrate the system  
IV. Keep track of the system -- No matter how dumg the system might be     or how impossible the security is you should always keep track of     all numbers you have  
V. Look for interestin items in the system -- Keep an eye for stuff that    resembles passwords or other numbers since this could lead to new    systems or usable passwords  
That more or less covers that....BUT how do you find 'virgin' systems? Well this is a part of hacking that all hackers most do....scanning...Scanning or wardialing was brought to life by the popular hacker movie 'Wargames' which inspired the war games wardialer....what a wardial or scanner does is it goes thru all the numbers in a specified prefix.....A good wardialer or scanner should be able to go thru numbers and be able to store them in a file which you can go thru later when you're bored....The idea is to find system beloning to companies and's a good idea to find out a prefix to lets say your downtown area...  
Another thing that most companies also have is frequecies hooked up to computers... This is a lot tuffer to scan for since you would nee to set up a HAM radio to go thru frequencies and collect infomation on what frequencies have carriers on the other ends...This is a fairly difficult thing to do but he rewards could be great....the most importan thing to remeber is to scan with the HAM in you car or something.....scanning from a fixed location will only cause police and FBI to show up at your doorsteps..  
When you've located a system don;t get discouraged if you get no response... many system think that if they set it up to connect at wierd parity's or stop bits and baud rate it's all the security so it is very important to find a communication program that will allow to do wierd things such as connecting at 1100 bauds and 1800 bauds....also to be able to set the parity to mark and space...  Well I hope this phile helps you starters...I'm going to crash now I've done my good deed for the day....well keep hacking but remember to hack safe!
