all i did was follow instructions i found on forums and everyone thought I was a genius
not considered a hacker but more of a pirate
i sold a lot of pirated software to kids in middle school(photoshop, windows, fl studio, games, movies, etc) made some decent money.
also installed proxy's on the school computers and stole ram and the laser mice. Ehhh had fun lol
I don't remember the year, it was in high school

>me: because i never need a password to become root/administrator
>me: I need only 1 minute to become root if you give me your computer
>other: you must be an hacker
>me: no it's really easy, I can teach you if you will
every time, people do not know what someone can do with a physical access to a computer
I almost got suspended from high school for telling a retard about the shutdown shutdown command. He proceeded to make everyone lose their work and blame me.
And that's how I learnt to keep my mouth shut and don't empower idiots.

I guess that's why they locked down the Linux install.

Oh, forgot to mention. I told a couple of friends about this and told them to keep their mouths shut or we'd all get in serious fucking trouble. They did.
We skimmed through most of those accounts. The hive queen had nudes on her Facebook, hidden to everyone but her boyfriend. Very fucking nasty, bitch was going away with an anal douche and dildo.
There was a "RUMORS FROM ANON HIGH" page where people uploaded all sorts of school rumors and shit.
Made an anonymous Facebook account, joined group, uploaded nudes, all through Tor because she was still underage (17, but I wasn't taking any risks). Massive shitstorm, girl's parents called the police, male population of my school fapped until balls dried out since she was hot as Hell. Didn't get caught.
My friends thought I was God.

That and I discovered shutdown -i in eighth grade and put it to use in ninth grade biology. I was too paranoid/well-behaved to try on teachers' computers.
I had two incidents
My first was I got into command prompt by saving a notepad document as a .bat file with the words command it it.
Opened command prompt, typed dir /s matrix starting coming up, everyone thought I was a haxor...
opened command prompt, typed netsend * ur gay lololololololol nothing happened, got called into the head of ITs office a week later saying that the message ur gay lololololololol got sent around 5 schools in the county. Was banned of the computers for 6 months..
Also last incident was when I ping www.youtube.com in CMD, got the IP address and then it got past the shitty filters they had on the Internet..
Be in 80s band that toured and played nearly every major college in south. Show up to play frat party at UF Gainesville in '86. Douche frat bros give us their library for dressing room backstage area.
I notice a vintage PC that has a modem and can access university mainframe.
Program the modem to call the frat house voice phone line every sixty seconds (and it would hang up if it did not connect)
Frat bros spend HOURS trying to figure out why someone is calling and hanging up every sixty seconds on their big party day. Phone line goes wild for several hours and frat bros can't figure it out, they call university, and technician is sent over - he finally figured it out.
Frat Bros freak out on us because they figure it was one of us. "Sorry frat bros; we are just high school dropout musicians, no computer skills...."

On April 1st I fucked with my college's e-mail system and sent a mass-email to all students saying classes were cancelled.
I sent it out at around 3am, and it wasn't until 11am that IT tried to fix the situation by sending out 3 e-mails afterwards telling students classes were still happening.
It was interesting how they tried to contain it, since I sent the e-mail out to all student college e-mails, apparently sometime between 9am to 10am they went to the master outlook server (since the college uses some Outlook business solution) and mass-deleted the e-mail from all mailboxes. But obviously several students which have e-mail forwarding or just read the e-mail ahead of time still got the message.
Best part when the Chief IT person sent out a mass e-mail going "sorry peeps, but ya know the school is susceptible to malicious attacks." Laughed pretty hard at that, but decided against telling anyone I did it since it pissed a bunch of people off.
>So anon, you ever hacked anything?
I got into reversing in high school and college and wrote a bunch of hacks for this shitty online game called phantasy star online. Sega got really pissed off and range banned my ISP. Those were fun times

>guy in high school doesn't think I can shut down his computer remotely
I tell him I can make a program that does it. He doesn't believe me so I copy over some fully functional client/server winsock code from a website I knew about. After about half an hour I managed to compile the client and server and I copy over the server to his computer, run the client and his computer shuts down. Blew his mind.

I set up a PC in the living room of my shared apartment. It has Netflix, a collection of music, a browser and whatnot. It also controls the TV through rs-232 serial.
One of our roommates has shit taste and he's always playing terrible music at high volumes, or watching mediocre food network shows. So sometimes I SSH into the computer from the other room and fuck with him in various ways.
Everybody's in on it except him, but they don't understand exactly how it works and to them, it's wizard hackery.
A few times while playing BFP4F I would detect a large amount of newbies in my presence. So I would tell them that pressing [ALT] + [F4] gave you slow motion vision for 30 seconds but it would only work 1 time per game. Half the fucking players online almost instantly disappeared, but then faggot mod banned me for life for having fun. Goddam killjoys

I acquired the admin password of my high shools online portal. I was able to read all of the teachers notes on all students. Got to read some shit I didn't expect
>teachers talking about kids who got raped.
>notes on various home situations.
>a short list of students who were on the verge of getting expelled
There was only one note on me. "Anon is a daydreamer but has good grades so it's okay". I never added a note myself in fear of getting caught. I also only ever told one friend. I had another friend who I would have told but his personal notes were full of shit I didn't want to confront him with. He probably would have stirred shit and get me in trouble.
Teachers need to know varying amounts of information about students in terms of how they react, how they learn and any issues that may need to be addressed. This transfer of information seems to indicate a system where teachers could find out about their previous students that are coming into their class.
Please go on though.
Well. I went through the notes of pretty much everybody that I knew. Most peoples notes only contained basic information about grades and whatnot. But then you come across shit like
>Anon's sister has leukemia, she hasn't got long to live.
>The parents of this person died in a car crash last year
>Anon has been in juvenile detention before and is a notorious shoplifter - don't let him get outside without supervision during school hours
>Anon is very rude so I gave him an F on his maths test even though it's arguably a D+. It's best for him to redo this year
That and one my teachers turned out to have some severe PTSD. Even that information was shared.

In 10th grade I had a hirens CD and the computer at school had a bios lock so you couldn't change it from booting off the network drive bullshit, so I pulled it out and reset the bios password, booted into the hard drive and used this website called getus.in to get through to any website bypassing the schools website blocker, so me and my friends downloaded a bunch of porn from random websites and we eventually infected it and since it was connected to the network drive the whole schools computers were infected and they were saying through the PA system to not connect any flash drives or log in to anything because there were viruses everywhere. No one ever found out it was me and my homies
>play vidya with a group of friends

>superjump in game
Didn't tell them for months, but they were suspicious eventually. It was a great childhood moment when I finally superjumped in front of everyone and we were all laughing. Man I miss being a kid.
I don't even have to try for this
>school computer in library don't have locked bios
>all computer are already set to boot from usb by default
>stick in liveusb of any linux distro
>people think you hacked the computer
What's even funnier is people will put a usb in one before it boots and it will give them a error since there is no bootloader on the usb drive, and everyone just assumes the computer is broken.
Nah not really, that's why we worked on that messenger clone, instant chat in a browser hadn't really been done before and people still had to download chat clients back then (besides Java applet clients and some hacky long-polling shit) but now you have facebook chat and places like livechan.
JS was awful to work with then too, no way to debug code at all and I don't even think there was a developer console.
JSON still wasn't a thing neither so I remember we had to make our own way of serializing data, like sending
>1|-|-|Anon|-|-|Online|-|-|420 blaze it faggot
which would decode to
>ID: 1, User: Anon, Status: Online, User status: 420 blaze it faggot
Ugly but it worked.
Speaking of ugly heres a screenshot that I uploaded to wikipedia, back when I thought we were onto something big with it.
Looks like an older version though, I'm pretty certain we had the contact list + chatting implemented, but this screenshot just has placeholders.
Wish I still had the code from back then, would be fun to look through.
But yeah, I've been using jQuery for a college project and I've gotta say things have improved a lot, being able to set breakpoints and quickly run some code in the browser makes stuff way easier.
Heh if only, she did actually seem sort of interested too... ;-;

How did net send work anyway? What would the message show up as?
I always tried to use it on the school computers but could never get it to happen. I wasn't as good with computers back then.

lel well the project is only to make a small PHP store, course I'm doing is pretty entry level so most of the lessons for this unit been showing people how to do basic PHP shit and some beginner JS/jQuery, if I used anything more than that I'd probably get less marks :^(
If anyone wants to fuck about there's a copy up on http://18.104.22.168/_store_/
Registering doesn't need a valid email, just has to look valid.
Haven't really done any pentesting on it since it's just a small project and only worth 40%, but feel free to try

You added something to your basket first right?
Basket is tied to PHP session id, so if you're not saving session cookies or something like that it probably won't work
Otherwise idk, I would change it to use user id for the basket too but the sample project the tutor put up for this assignment didn't use it so I didn't bother, maybe I'll look into tomorrow just incase though

This is really cool stuff, again to comment on the frontend: it's nice and intuitive, and the backend produces a responsive feel (I mean, sure, it's not got billions of users but you get my drift). I'm no 1337 hacker so I can't comment on security.
Is this on your own server? I have this possibly irrational fear that by port-forwarding 24/7 my Perforce server I'm going to get rekt somehow.

Heh thanks, this actually only took about a week to make, MVC + Bootstrap can really get you going pretty quick.
It's on a dedicated server I got from OVH/Kimsufi, they sell dedis cheap as fuck, paying 25 euros a month for
>Core i7-920 (4 cores/8 threads) @ 2.66GHz
>2TB disk space
>100Mbps unmetered connection
They sell cheaper ones too with less specs but they all have 100Mbps unmetered, only problem with them is there's almost no support at all, all they offer for Kimsufi servers is a community forum where the staff hardly ever answer but that's no problem if you know what you're doing
I would love to just sit in starbucks and be able to fuck with the laptops of people around me. I remember watching a video where someone was able to access others' facebooks because they connected to the wifi.
Yeah all with a plugin for.Firefox. forgot the name. Facebook basically didn't encrypt the way they kept sessions and the plugin would steal sessions of people on Feb on the same WiFi u were on. Shit was cache.
>And that's how I learnt to keep my mouth shut and don't empower idiots.
Never show your power level. If you have a CEH or something similar keep your mouth shut, because every time your company's ISP slows down, it's because your hacking it. Never, ever recover emails, because then you'll be the guy who can steal company info.
And for god's sake never say you can get into the cloud.
Just think of how you look at someone you know can pick locks. Now put that on a corporate level.

Something similar happened to me, i taught a retard how to cut the lights by getting a wire through an eraser and putting it in the plug. He did it 7 times in two days, then turned me in.
We both got suspended.

But seriously though, noice. Might want to use consistent sized images, but it is just a cs project. Also, it looks like you're linking your files directly to your server, should probably not do that incase you ever move servers.
Also, interesting that you bought a dedicated server, and no domain, most people just get some free heroku shit (they let just host apps on their shit for free, no idea how good support is for PHP etc, I'm all about the new, fashionable, silicon valley circle jerk stuff), and a cheap domain name.
my teacher told us where the program was, then expected us to be able to recreate a shopping center then present it as a video overview.
teacher actually knew jack shit about what we were expected to complete as he was mainly a wood tech/metal tech teacher

The school used FirstClass. It was everything faculty of all the highschools in the provice, as far as I know. Personal schedules, global announcements, a personal and public mail system. The public mail system was basically an unsorted inbox, where anyone could "post". Any teacher login could get to these. Nothing hugely interesting, warned some friends about shit teachers were getting suspicious about.
I'll write a bit more.

Never really read anything else in there. Exciting for a kid my age though, I guess. Especially the fake login prompt. As soon as I called her over my heart was pounding.

my high school used a voip system for the phones in each class. I had some shitty laptop and brought it to school, went behind the cafeteria and found a LAN port so I just left it there running a DDoS on the VOIP system.
I think the phones were down for like 2 weeks they couldnt figure it out!
ALso found out how to use the intercom system for the entire school using a #719
Why do all your friends have to be tech literate? My best friend is a macfag and thinks torrenting movies is scary. Guy is a total blast to hang out with and we get up to all kinds of awesome shit.

I found network printers around my school and sent at least 150 jobs to the spooler.
No one was allowed to print anything after that, but the admins did not learn. Still printed to a network printer from my iPod.

I use to login to other peoples' accounts at my school, because all of their passwords were their name but with 1 on the end. I changed my password so no one else could use my account, muhahaha.
I use to go and login as admin then screw up the network in command prompt. No one ever caught me.

Come to overly funded state school, start a PowerPoint assignment at a really young age. "Wow kid! Not bad work considering your age!" Proceed to watch a numbe of movies that teach me how glorious it is to be a hacker. Proceed to build such a reputation, look awesome as fuck to those plebs. Eventually become relatively good at hacking and shutdown a server, now considered the equivalent of Julian Assange.
