Oh, You Meant *Real* Hacking?

One of my Twitter followers, @KuteKetX, was teasing me about my “Hacking” post, saying that that wasn’t real hacking. Yeah, yeah, I know. Well, just like the term “dark web,” “hacking” is just sort of a catch-all term. I blame pop culture for this. OWASP, for instance, calls them “attacks,” which is more appropriate. Or […]

Teach Me Hacking, Please!! XD

One of the common questions I see people ask on Tor (and elsewhere) is “How do I hack x? (insert name of social network or app here.) Can I partially blame TV and movies for that question? The problem with the question, to begin with, is that there’s no one form of “hacking.” It certainly […]

Have I Been Pwned (Again)?

Sigh. You would think that, with all my dark web exploring, I’d be better at being confidential. Hey, I’m working on it! This morning, I was chatting on IRC, and a “random” person happened to pop in. He acted as if he knew me, but in a few seconds, it just turned out he was […]

HackerCombat: Secure in the Dark Web?

f-Society: Hackers’ Social Network?

Alright, technically this site isn’t on the “dark web,” but that’s how I came across it. I had clicked on the Atlayo Search Engine, and to my surprise, it had been hacked: If you go by what the picture says, the person (or people) responsible were 7ulzSec – well, I guess that’s pretty obvious, huh? I […]

Thanks for Quoting Me!

by Ciphas On occasion, I’ve noticed that some other blogs and sites have quoted (or should I say plagiarized?) articles I’ve written. Some people would be offended by this, I suppose, but in a way, I’m rather flattered. After all, they wouldn’t have quoted me if they didn’t like what I had written. I’m sure […]

Have I Been Pwned? (Maybe.)

Has all my talk about the dark web and malware come back to bite me in the ass? Maybe… One of my readers sent me a message and informed me that according to the site Quttera, I had malware on this very blog. For all my talk about being safe and blah blah blah, it is […]
