How i got an inspiration to become an Hacker?
I was in my computer Engineering first year, where i met my very first mentor Mr Abdul Kadir Sir (Lecturer @ AMU). He shown me some amazing things in his class related to IP address and Networking and told me few good links to study more. I found that so much interesting and unique that it became my passion and i started learning things quickly. But suddenly a incident happened, my email account was hacked and that incident of hacking my email account boosted my Hacking journey to next level. Now my motive has become to learn how to hack email accounts, for searching this i visited at least 100+ Hacking websites but result is all same. All websites same novice methods like phishing, password guessing etc and none of them worked :D Phishing worked sometimes for me but its ration was 10:4. Once day doing so i thought why don’t develop my own method to hack emails but how to start???? So i started from very beginning How email works?? What all channels it go through?? and much more. And it worked, i have written my own scripts and tools to hack emails and much more. But believe me in that’s not even the 1 percent of Hacking. My interest keep on growing and parallely my skills.
That’s the only reason i never say no to people who come to me for Hacking emails and Facebook kind of things because i see a new hacker evolving. Now you all guys think this is not so called hacker, but its cracker. So my answer is quite simple ” To become a good Cop, you have to think like a criminal or sometimes become a criminal to enter their territory”.
So that about me, how i became a hacker. Now lets learn what things are necessary to become a professional Hacker.
