Just a question that I've been woundering about for quite some time...

Where have all of you heard about UGN Security?
What brought you here?
Why did you stay?
What did you expect from joining UGN Security?
Have your expectations changed?

In reply to Gizmo,

I went to "www.copscops.com/", and found you on their list. I was looking for info on comp security.
I liked your rants page, that's why I stayed. I expected to hear a wide range of opinions on tech stuff, and hopefully learn something new. My expectations have not changed.

I dunno where I heard about it. Search engine probably?

I came here because I wanted to "hack" just like most newbies. That outlook didn't last, obviously.

They made me staff, so it was hard to leave. :x

I think i was searching for Hacking news etc,...

Saw this Intresting site = ) It looked awsome. I saw you guys had forums, so i decided to hang around this cool community, then started hanging around at Irc channel.

And i was made a News Moderator = ) I stay here because i have met a lot of cool people and not planning on leaving any time soon = )

I stoped to going to most of the computer related communities accept this one = )

I found UGN on the old hackers.com like back in 1999-2000. I stayed cause of the people back then. There were maybe about 300-400 members when I joined. What I expect from UGN is to learn so much that one day I can take over the world. or maybe I'm jus here cause I'm attached to it too much.

I did a google search or was it hotbot... anyway search for underground. There she was.. UnderGroundNews. Who could resist a site with such a sexy name. I wanted to learn to hack and do cool stuff on the computer. I had no idea how much I would learn and how different it was from my original thoughts. I stay because this place is just as sexy if not more then when I first laid eyes on her.

I think i was searching on google for something beginning with 'underground...'. Don't remember what I was looking for :|

Anyway, I stayed because I thought I might learn a lot of stuff by reading the posts.. And I was right.

coldsunn told me about it, or rather he complained about how much it sucked now, so i checked it out. i stayed because somehow ugn got stuck as my startup page and i can't figure out how to change it.

I found it because I was supposed to go to defcon a couple years back and the trip got cancelled. So I was cruising around defcon's site to see what I missed, that is where I came across UGN

heh, as do I, but when that reachs 1000+, then 10,000 plus it will show something very good. not to mention when it reachs 100,000+, or 1,000,000:XXXXX

I was looking for text files on a search engine, and the old KBase was listed there, so I decided to join, read and see what I could learn. And that is the reason I still hang around here. I've not been very active lately, but hopefully that will change. smile

i found ugn in a book called "steal this computer book 3". Wanted to learn to stop hackers and spammers from getting into my machine and to get back at them but i have found that i have a lot to learn. I have stayed here because the ops are really helpful and i havn't met anyone here yet that looks down on me for being a newb. I expected to be able to learn how to hack like swordfish in a few months. My expectations have changed greatly. I now know that in order to be good at anything related to programming, hacking, security, scripting, etc. its going to take a lot of practice, hard work, reading, and tutalige ffrom the great people here at ugn.

Yeh we're in a few books; I'd love it if the author's would tell us which ones so we could advertise for them...

If you put us in a book for production we'll advertise your book(s) for free...

Have your expectations changed?


1. Downloaded this hacking program for my Wizard pocket keeper back in 99, the program was written by Blackbeard an there was a link to the board.
2.I came to find out the Truth..
3.I found the truth but not always the Right Truth.
4.nothing really just knowledge
5.In the last 4 years i never went to no fancy school to learn about computers. Now I can build/take apart/destroy, upgrade install,Circumvent Programs,Program(C++,Java, java script, HTML,DHTML,CGI,Visual B, BASIC)
Hex,A+ certification.

But sadly in america If u don't have a document that says I graduated from some Fancy [censored] money stealing school where they teach u no REAL SKILLS. (i can say that cause i have fixed computers for dozens of ppl who went to school for computers)you can't get a Job

Lets just say i took the RED pill


Programming it is like sex anyone can do it but only a few of us will ever master it and satisfy all parties envoled :-)

Actually, that's the way business works in every part of the world, not just the US. Nobody will hire you because an actual certification proves to a company that you have the skills to do what you claim. I'm sure you could work on computers as well as the next guy, but companies can't just take your word for it.

I was searching for hacking news on some search engine at school. I came across this site but when I tried to enter it, I was denied. The school's filter spat this at me: "This site is forbidden! It is categorized as Criminal Skills."

Needless to say, this peaked my interest. So I wrote down the site and when I got home checked it out. And I'd have to say it was the forum that kept me here.

I expected to learn a thing or two, and I have. I suppose I could say that this site was my first step into the "underground" world of security and hacking.

Well I found this website because i was looking for a website that would help me gide myself through the path of hacking and that would keep me updated to the lastest news so i started typing possible names for websites untill i typed UnderGroundNews.com and it actually came up. I decided to stay because of the news, the KBase files and the forum. The first thing that came to my mind when I got to UGN was that this was the website that i was looking for and that it would help me out alot and that has not changed... thank you UGN for existing... thank you Gizmo for creating it.

I came across it in like 1998 when blackbeard first started it. I believe he posted on a bunch of different boards and I came across it and have been following it since. The look of the webboard has became much easier on the eyes, the old orange color really sucked. I think a few of you remember that
