    Programing in both script and higher language, internet and computer security, basic and advanced networking, theory of bots, worms, trojans, bots (and much more), basics of the different protocols, that are used and much much more. And first of all: USE LINUX. And there is no dedicated way to be a hacker - at first you need a programing language (every hacker is also a programmer and no hacker startet from somewhere else than a programmer). Than you have to learn very very much - and you have to read manuals, scripts, papers, ... Most people become hackers while they are in college. And please - don't mix up Hackers and Crackers. If you want to be a hacker you later maybe work for a company as the computer security chef or something like that. As a cracker you will go to hell. Nobody likes cracker, who are just breaking into other pc's to cause problems.

    You may also want to read http://norvig.com/21-days.html If you want to gain a little knowledge in computer security, or if you want to be an evil cracker though (dont do it man!), then you could also learn how all the tools bundled with http://www.backtrack-linux.org/ work.

    hey bro....to be a hacker , first you should be strong in basic programming like c,c++,shell....... But there are more corners.....most of them learn web hacking which covers a major part...& needs more knowledge in web technologies......like Php, Jsp,Ruby, client scripts ,etc...... But , to b a good hacker , u just should have knowledge in all programming skills........ Try learning gradually............ Hope you hav a good start in hacking and explore in hacking as a WHITE HAT.

    Programming for sure, c, c++ for hardcore hacking since it can reach more vulnerable areas of the OS. Other than that, concepts of networking, how a protocol works, understanding packet headers... actually it depends on the area of your hacking interests. You can start of by creating simple bruteforcers in c,c++ and test it on password protected archive file like zip/rar or ms office documents. Code a keylogger that listens to keystrokes and maintains a log or a simple code that appends some bytes to other files (virus coding) In website hacking, well... you will need to learn internet based technologies like php & ajax or even something as simple as javascripting. Start off with creating java user scripts to steal cookies or create a simple webpage with a username/login and interface it in php so you can record the password when the user enters details and tries to login. All this stuff is simple in theory and not even close to real hacking but it's a start. You will need good logic, observation, understanding and curiosity. PS: Obviously, I am not a hacker but this is what i think would help.

    Hacker is a person the spreads, modifies, improves, technology and gives the information out freely. They are often rich not because they tried to get rich but as a side effect and demand of the things they do/make. You know I like Mark Zuckerburg but I think he has to stop calling himself a Hacker ...Hackers often are supposed to be concerned with spreading information and Ideas about technology their money is often just a side effect of the technology demanded from them....they are often well to do but aren't attempting to make billion they just do. Zuckerburg seems concerned with making money from ads and this smartphone may be his attempt to gain back the ad revenue it has recently lost due to people not clicking on ads on their smartphone --calmchessplayer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hacker_(term)
