Please dump any resource I can use to teach myself, including online communities I can join for questions.

Is Python optimal?

Thanks in advance


python is optional if you're really good at C i guess
people tend to use python cause it's easy and flexible


what do you want to hack


theres a good reading list in this thread:



find bugs in programs, ffmpeg and vlc are pretty common targets for newbies (you may want to start creating a working n-day)

If you don't even understand buffer overflows, ROP, and heap attacks then:


This is more for binary exploitation/vulnerability research - cracking wifi passwords or whatever is skid tier shit and I have no resources for it.


This assumes a working knowledge of x86_64, C, C++ (a little just what a vtable is) and ARM if you ever want to get into embedded or iphone/android hacking. Most people suck ass at C these days even though they say they 'know C' so if you don't understand what struct packing is you don't know C well enough.

You also need a thorough understanding of how a computer executes a program - so that would be syscalls, virtual memory, binary formats and dynamic loaders. From there you should begin to learn about operating systems - basically pick an open source one (bsd, xnu, linux) and stare at it for a really long time.

alright I'm on the new version and it seems to work. Although when I reinstalled it last time it worked at first, but then the error began happening again after a day or so.

I'll put a post here if it starts happening again. Thanks for your efforts btw :)


Is there a way to upload multiple images on the app?


For now, no. I plan on implementing it, but it is a major change


Started getting the error again, here's the log:

Update on this issue. It seems to only occur on leftypol. I can post on 4chan no problem.

I want to get an old thinkpad, like an x200 and make it into a secure, tor-only machine. What is the best way to do this? Something like Qubes OS or is that just a meme? Looking for solutions for full disc encryption, network card that connects to TOR alone, that kind of stuff.

Just pay $2000 to have someone else install Qubes on a thinkpad.


what's the market here? tech-illiterate schizos?




Maybe journalists who don't need to know how to partition a drive


They also have some hardware tamperproof evidence thingy.

Holy shit, Google and Apple may have unwittingly just destroyed the highly unethical false-sense-of-security marketing of encrypted-messaging apps to dissidents and whatnot.
For years, many of us here on /g/ who have 200+ IQs and who keep our computer gear in a basement Faraday cage alongside our anti-psychotic medication have been alerting the masses that you can't have a secure encrypted-messaging app on an endpoint device that's Swiss cheese. We've been talking about exotic baseband attacks, OTA SIM attacks, 0days against software running on the AP, etc.
But if the latest reports about auto-installed COVID apps in some states are true and not Qoomer-tier nonsense, Google and Apple are perfectly happy to give governments the keys to the kingdom for installing whatever the fuck they wish on a device. Poof go any assurances that dissidents have with regard to their encrypted-messaging apps.
Keep an eye on this. Shit is about to get lit in the neurodiverse community.


>Google and Apple are perfectly happy to give governments the keys to the kingdom for installing whatever the fuck they wish on a device.

Is this new? They always acted whatever way a local government wants them to.

That being said, source?


Those companies always could install apps whenever unless measures are taken to remove the preinstalled shit from stock devices, so it should not be a surprise that it is potentially used for the COVID tracker business. And there are a lot of allegedly secure encrypted message apps that are glow in the dark honeypots, so even besides the PUP installation shit, problems are already existent about security. Just don't use modern phones, if one has to do shady work or so.

>Well yeah there's thousands of researchers working on it, all of which have lots of funding because we live in le society.
There are thousands of researchers and a lot of money going to idpol causes, but it gets pissed against the wall. What actual changes have there been in AI in the last ten years?


What the fuck are you talking about? This is a mathematical and computational discipline. I'm not talking about idpol. Even if idpol gets a majority of funding that's a huge amount still going to actual r+d.
What do you think AI is? It's a very broad term and the algorithm accuracy and effiency has improved drastically over the past 10 years. I assume you're probably talking about general AI?


why are normies like this?

Looks like you never used a mouse with a short wire. I still dread the feeling of trying to move the mouse but getting stuck.


>we will come and steal the headphone jacks out of your life
Bourgeois degeneracy. Pay more for less (quality).


USB extension cables are still a way better option.
They sometimes come with a wireless mouse :^)

What programming languages do you guys use? I'm mostly Python, Java, C#, C++. Used to like functional programming but IMO now that regular OO languages have alot of function features like first class functions its not as big a deal to write code in a pure functional language like lisp or haskell, better to write regular python or something and occasionally write some functional-styled code

These days I only write Python and shell scripts. Haven't found anything better than Python for personal projects.
Used to write a lot of C, C++, C# and Java. I still hate Java.


Python is the best language for personal project IMO, unless you specifically want to experiment with a language of course. Django specifically is incredible for APIs.


What language would I use to automate stock ordering and trend following?


I would just use some Python libraries for making HTTP requests and parsing responses. Requests + Beautiful Soup for example. Both things you mentioned are very trivial until some stupid bug makes you order a ton of stocks over night.


I imagined it be easy, especially since the place I order isn't very busy, I'd need to also make it so the bot wouldn't go past a certain budget
