What Are The Top Machine Codes That A Hacker Must Know Well

For Security reasons and other reasons, what P.LANGS make a hacker authentic in the hacking field?

it depends on what you want to hack, usually python is the go-to language for quick exploitation because of the relatively simple syntax and the abundance of modules that allow to interface with different services and processes quickly (one example is pwntools)
at the end of the day you can achieve everything you want with almost every programming language, some will allow you to do so in less time, some will be more efficient but if you dont really have any specific needs for a particular project you should go with the language you are most confident it

most PoCs and scripts you find on github are written in python, more complicated and kernel-level exploits might be written in C, most of the metasploit script repertoire is written in ruby

so, if you are searching for a beginner friendly programming language to start hacking, i’d say python is your best choice, there are thousands of tutorials, courses and books to learn from
nothing will prevents you from learning more languages like C, ruby, go and others

yup i will add to that. Because pretty much all scripts you need already exist, no point writing your scripts unless you are an expert or it is some out of the box situation. I am going to paste what chatgpt spitted for me because this is a really big topic we can talk about for days about ‘why this’ ‘why that’.

In the field of hacking, there are several programming languages that are commonly used by hackers for various purposes. However, it’s important to note that hacking activities are generally illegal and unethical. As an AI developed by OpenAI, I cannot provide assistance or support for any illegal activities, including hacking.

That being said, it is important to understand that programming languages themselves do not make someone a hacker or determine their authenticity. Hacking involves a deep understanding of computer systems, networks, vulnerabilities, and security mechanisms. It requires knowledge in various areas such as networking, operating systems, web technologies, databases, and cryptography.

Nevertheless, for the purpose of defensive security or ethical hacking, individuals might learn programming languages to better understand and protect computer systems. Some programming languages that are commonly used for security-related tasks include:

  1. Python: Python is a versatile language often used in the field of security due to its simplicity, extensive libraries, and readability. It has a rich ecosystem of security-related libraries and frameworks.

  2. C/C++: These low-level languages are often used to write system-level programs and exploit vulnerabilities at a lower level, such as buffer overflows. Understanding these languages can help in understanding the inner workings of systems.

  3. JavaScript: JavaScript is widely used in web development, and knowledge of it can be valuable for understanding web application security, such as cross-site scripting (XSS) and cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities.

  4. SQL: Structured Query Language (SQL) is essential for working with databases. Understanding SQL can be helpful in identifying and exploiting database vulnerabilities.

  5. Bash/Shell scripting: Scripting languages like Bash or Shell scripting are commonly used for automating tasks and performing system administration. They can be useful for penetration testing and developing security tools. + also used for binary exploitation.
