As a die-hard hat fan, I can assure you that the sun won't burn your head! As more you know about the technologies behind ethical or non-ethical hacking as more you are protected. In fact I've been quite a lot of times confronted with viruses, cryptolocker viruses, ddos attacks and other harmful stuff! The question is not what your computer is infected with - no - more important is how did it come on your computer.
That's how I came to white-hat hacking or better said penetration-testing. My abilities are far away from governmental professionals but my resources are limited and becoming a grey- or black-hat is definitly not my intention. The reason why I opened this Page-Section and didn't publish only DEFENCE is that I want to show everybody how easy it could be getting hacked.
I will publish only Information which is easy available on youtube - or any other public source.
I do not advise you to hack anybody or anybodies property without permission! I would even go so far that I do not show solidarity to grey-hat hackers who first inform the "victim" and then publish the results, because in my opinion I stop using the product because of it's vulnerabilities and publish this "point of view" if company doesn't care about customers security. For example the "Chinese" security cams I've seen on my brothers house I've moved to a separate network without Internet access, because I didn't trust them and voila I do sleep well!
I do not advise any proxies, secure vpns, servers in "hacker-friendly" regulation less countries or the onion network because if you don't harm anybody you don't need to hide. Becoming a black-hat is not that difficult if you spend some money on darknet forums and get some easy to use scripts - but where is the fun?
Where a victim is there is also a fraud - Where a client is there is also good money to earn legal!
