If you want to be a hacker, the first thing I'll ask is, why?!?

I wouldn't consider myself a hacker in the same sense as what most people do.

same

sometimes on the games I play, I try to "hack" the website via exploits to find security flaws and relay the issue back to the website owner. I usually dwell in finding flaws in websites built in PHP. particulary mySQL, CSRF, XSS injections.

I dont consider myself a hacker.. Im more of a security advisor in a sense. I find flaws and then give advice on how to fix the issue lol.


other than that, I dont hack.

same here, not everything is can be classed as " heavy hacking", its merely a form of hacking.

Anyway since Im taking law this sept and I studied ICT & Law in college. When I think of "hacker" I think of a selfish person taking advantage of someone's work. (just being one sided here i know)

But other type people are very helpful in that respect, which helps to improve computer systems.

As for Legal side of that, I think of Computer Misuse Act 1990 hehe.

I hate those types of "hackers", sometimes they even go ahead and leak your work. I've seen this on a few occasions and such behavior is just absolutely disgusting and just sad.

Haha, hackers are usually categorized into white hat, and black hat. Ethical and Unethical. The only form of hacking I can appreciate is white hat (ethical) :yes:

I was thinking of taking law, but only up to Foundation Degree/HND level, I'm indecisive about this.

What is your thought on the matter Vlad, do you think doing law would aid in my ambitions to work within digital forensics?

P.S: Sorry for the slight derailment that is happening

Haha, I'm quiet the nut for my age, as said by my lecturers :P

Perhaps you could consider doing the BSc in law, and then doing an online degree in ICT, once you have the money saved up :P

Yea, it's probably best that you send a visitor message on my profile when you next want to talk, it prevents derailing this thread.

It can't hurt, but certainly any competent Digital Forensics course will have a legal component to at least cover relevant digital law etc. Like the Computer Misuse Act, Communications Act 2003, RIPA, DPA etc. In this field I'd definitely recommend not worrying too much on voluminous academic qualifications; instead focusing on taking relevant degree-level qualifications and then getting as much experience as possible and learning on the job.
