Who are you?
Hi everyone, I go by johnt, a euro math student in college
Can you program? If yes, what languages?
I got a few notions in python and programmed a tiny little bit at school :
Prolog (basically spent the first classes scratching our heads in confusion),
scilab (for Numerical Analysis).
Nothing too fancy though.
How'd you find us?
A bit less than a year ago I joined nullbyte and started reading some articles, sending a few pms and receiving great answers and explanations ( thanks dtm). It was a warm community even though I wasn't there for long. Then we all know what happened.
How long have you been interested in computers/infosec?
Basically I've been interested in computer science since a very early age but I couldn't find any good forum like 0x00sec or former-nb, mostly ending up on shady hacking websites where you spit on newcommers and learn how to ddos your ex by clicking a button, thus got the hell out of there.
Then this year, watching Mr Robot intrigued me, I searched for a few detailed analysis of the episodes and found OTW's articles @ nullbyte. Then it all snowballed : I got interested in the low-levels overthewire wargames (we all start somewhere ), pentesterlab, etc...
It's been under a year so I've only got so much to learn
For now I am obviously still a newb in infosec but hopefully there will be a few topics where I can give insight/make tutorials on in the future.
PS : @Phoenix750 & @Cromical heard you mates
