Hackers have penetrated the computer network of the Nasdaq Stock Market during the past year, according to a story in the Wall Street Journal . Federal investigators are trying to figure out who did it and why. If it’s true, then the entire stock market is vulnerable to disruption that could potentially wreck billions of dollars in electronic commerce on a daily basis. The worry remains that if hackers can penetrate Nasdaq, maybe they can break into the computer systems of other secure entities, from air traffic control systems to defense computers. The exchange’s computers that execute stock trades weren’t compromised, but so far it isn’t clear how deep the hackers were able to penetrate.
We are a private "hacking space", where we differ from the other spaces on this site is that we only concern ourselves with breaking the security of software, operating systems, and hardware. We also occasionally host invite-only parties, coding contests, etc. If you're looking for other like-minded folks to share your advanced security research with shoot us an email to introduce yourself. NOTE: We appreciate those who want to learn actual hacking, but please do some work on your own first...learn RFC2616, learn assembly, learn something ;) <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

By Thomas Carriero This tutorial gives you easy-to-follow instructions, with screenshots, for setting up a compiler (the MINGW compiler ), a tool that will let you turn the code that you write into programs, and Code::Blocks , a free development environment for C and C++. This tutorial explains how to install Code::Blocks on Windows 2000, XP, Vista or Windows 7. Note: if you're running Linux, go here to learn how to use GCC ; if you're on OS X, go here to get set up using Apple XCode . Step 1: Download Code::Blocks
