A number of people have asked how I got into security so I figured I would answer that. Gaming. I started with doom, then Half-Life. After getting bored of Half-Life I started getting into modding, first small things like changing skins, then larger things like modifying how weapons worked. The more advanced mods required more and more coding. Once I got into programming I think (as corny as it sounds) the movie "The Matrix" got me into the idea of hacking. There was little to no real info on the web when I first started on hacking (everything was very hush hush and underground) But I found a website (hackthissite.org) that was awesome. I ended up being the first "user" to code a "challange" for the website, and was an admin for a little while (before things got too political and dramatic) The website is still great for beginners to get in the right frame of mind. After that I did some reverse engineering penetration testing for Lockheed Martin (through my college's co-op program), and here we are :)
I hope that's answered everyone's questions about myself
