Is Java a good language for hacking?

Postby ScHacker23 » Sun May 26, 2013 6:55 am

I recently learned Java and I found it quite useful. I've learnt the basics and I think Java is a good Programming Language but I don't know that its a good language for hacking or not.

So I've two questions here:

# Is Java a good language for hacking?, If its not then what are the alternatives, I mean for a beginner.

# Where can I find a good Java tutorial with reference to hacking?

# Please list all the alternate languages that are useful in hacking

I'm a newbie in hacking and Programming...

It really depends on what you want to do with it. If you're looking to write a remote exploit in it, it's fine just like any other language you can make a raw socket in is fine.
For local exploits, not so much. Unless you're actually targeting the JVM. If you're not the JVM is going to prevent you from doing anything really interesting on the local system.
If you're writing tools, sure. Whatever you're most comfortable with is generally a good choice then.

Really depends on which of the above options you're going after.

ASM for both local and remote payloads in exploits. C/C++ for local exploits.
Every other common language for understanding the code you're exploiting and any code written by someone else that may be useful to you.
If we're breaking the rules, then how come you can't catch us? You can't find us? I know why. Cause, it's ... MAGIC!

I wouldn't really prefer Java. C and ASM are much more powerful for low level stuff.
Here is a tutorial. Google for more.
