"Growing up with a 1200 baud modem, I found solace in cyberspace... I was accepted." –Darren Kitchen, Hak5 founder.
The Hacker community is one of the most welcoming places, from BBS and Usenet then to Forums and Social Media now.
Community is fundamental to hacker culture, and Hak5 is committed to inclusivity – because all Hackers Belong.
The Hak5 community is a place where pentesters, students, coders, enthusiasts and all-around Hak5 fans come together to help each other, inspire one another and collectively share feedback with Hak5. It's a welcoming place! We just ask that you follow these simple rules:
This isn't a place for trolling – it's a place to help an encourage each other, and to provide constructive feedback. Remember, nobody was born 1337. We all started somewhere.
Please keep your posts relevant to the topic, thread or board you're posting on. Don't post random junk, troll bait or off topic ramblings – that's what YouTube is for ;)
We encourage you to share your ideas, and it's totally possible that we'll learn from you and perhaps integrate your idea into a new product or payload. We've always grown our Hak5 Gear based on your feedback, so bear in mind that when you share your ideas, you're giving us the okay to act on them.
