What are the top 3 programming languages to learn?

This. The "speed" at which they attack their targets is definitely not accurate, but if it was, this show would be slow as snails.

So many people have said for decades that c and c++ will die out.

They were all wrong. Ruby is dying though and Python is just a flavor of the month.

Mr. Robot hacking is pretty legit, but what you need to realize is they regularly do a physical invasion that enables the hack.

For example, when they hack the FBI they literally get someone in the building and plant a dirty router, from there all they do is exploit vulnerabilities in linux. Linux isn't secure if you can get your hands on a system. Any joe schmoe can reset a root password with 5 lines of text and do whatever the fuck they want.

It's not like they're doing anything outrageous.

COBOL and in-depth knowledge of time traveling

Shit if anything in the entertainment industry was accurate to the time scale we would get long very boring movies in general.

Because they're stupid, all government jobs/defense contractors are switching over to Java because it's the most secure. Definitely a language you should be learning.

What kind of job you you want? Go over to and look for the jobs you want, see what programming languages they are asking for.

That's a nice fantasy you've live in.

If even the writer has problems with understanding this shit you call a java code then one can be sure reverse engineering gonna be a bitch
41 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-27 14:17
And maybe x86/x64 assembly
42 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-27 14:24
Depends on what you're trying to accomplish. Anyone who swears by one language in all scenarios is a script kiddie/pseudo-intellectual and shitting you. There's plenty of information out there on which languages are best suited for which purposes, from game dev to gene mapping, databases, websites, the list goes on. Figure out what it is you're trying to accomplish before committing yourself to anything.

To the programmers in here, which language would be most suited for realistic hacking (windows based systems, smartphones,etc).

I'm leaning more towards the hacking side of things. SQL I know is a given. All the research I've done says Python is the way to go for me needs. Just wanted an opinion from people who actually know.
45 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-27 14:42
But code is secondary in most academic fields for everyone but developers due to repositories
Freeware is the tits

There's literally no difference between building a good backend/server infrastructure (what I do) and desktop development. Companies don't want desktop apps.

Python can run some bash commands which makes it happy fun times for all.
48 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-27 15:15
I guess what I'm asking here is. Which is the best program for hacking. Windows, Mac, iPhones, androids, etc.
49 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-27 15:46
Kek this is bait
Even xamarin uses csharp fagblob

MS actually open sourced it so .net core runs on almost every platform now.

SQL is best
no C is best
no Python

Daily reminder that programming elitism renders you below 100 IQ.
52 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-27 16:03
For hacking, assembly, sql, javascript.

Assembly to reverse engineer code.
SQL to understand the data you potentially get at.
JavaScript for cross site scripting.
53 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-27 16:11
There is no best really. And it doesn't even matter. As long as you understand the fundamental principle of coding you can code with any language
Visual Basic if you need office
ABAP if you need SAP
C#/JavaScript/aspnet if you need dynamic Webhosting
Java if you need portability
Xamarin/swift if you want into mobile apps
You get the idea.
54 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-27 16:20
C and awk are obligatory. Probably Java or Python the third. Python I'd say.

Every one of those you named requires different languages lol you should probably go read something.

Since you guys are actually being informative, I'll drop some things here. Not much but it's still something.

Windows based systems: C/C++, x86/x64 assembly, Java are the main ones
Or if you're lazy just get kali linux and a vm

Not the person you were replying to but seriously sarcasm isn't a difficult concept

Impossible to tell sarcasm without intonation. Some one might be stupid enough to actually mean that.
61 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-27 16:58
cobol, fortran and assembly
62 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-27 17:01
Sorry should have specified:
Java is a joke for security

There's a reason everyone is advised to keep that shit disabled. not because it's "so secure"
63 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-27 17:08
Can someone explain kali Linux?
64 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-27 17:12
Google can. If you're too lazy to google it then you should stop trying now.
65 Name: Anonymous 2017-05-27 17:17
Not lazy, just wondering if it's just a vm that doesn't really do anything or if it actually works.

Kali Linux is a Debian-based Linux distribution aimed at advanced Penetration Testing and Security Auditing. Kali contains several hundred tools which are geared towards various information security tasks, such as Penetration Testing, Security research, Computer Forensics and Reverse Engineering. Kali Linux is developed, funded and maintained by Offensive Security, a leading information security training company.

Kali Linux was released on the 13th March, 2013 as a complete, top-to-bottom rebuild of

As someone who knows jack about programming. In reading this thread it seems the top vote getters for python, assembly/assembler, java.

This is incorrect unless you are working for some shitty hipster tech company or startup.

Thank you all for the information.

my best advice to start would be: pick java, find a problem you want to solve or just something you want to make and use java to solve this
google and stackoverflow is your best friends

When you have to publish a change. Do you want to update an intranet site, or do you want to update thousands of computers?

clueless dude who wants into programming because he saw mr robot asks an innocent question
gets flooded by the ages old programming language war
Just so you know OP, you're going to see this for the rest of your programming days, ESPECIALLY on anonymous boards.
You have to shop around, research about the languages you see, and make your choice according to what you want to do.
All I can suggest to you is that you install Linux if you haven't done that yet, and read about such subjects as: cryptography, network protocols (TCP/IP), Computer architecture internals, Operating systems concepts.

go on real but lowpop /prog/ board
unanimous agreement that maker languages are for children

go on 4ct/prog/
people unironically recommending python and ruby
thankfully no recommendations for JS
Why can't I have nice things.

I'm the 40+yo GenXer, you flaky little bitch. We built your goddamned internet. We have one foot in the analog and one foot in the digital.
I can skin a deer, rebuild an engine, get a database into third normal form, hack together disparate pieces of back end server technology with a patchwork of PHP, Python, and Perl, and I can do that all by 5PM.
By 9PM I will have already fucked your mom.

I was in a mosh pit while you were being conceived. I can STILL hold my own in the mosh pit even now while your scrawny little ass is standing there, arms folded, nodding gently to the band, or face glued to your phone built via Chinese wage slaves, surfing the internet that MY generation helped build.

And you know what makes me and my generation special?

Nothing. Not a goddamned thing.

Because we were bitching about the boomers before it was #trending. Many of them were the hippies that their own parents and grandparents complained about. They were the snowflakes of their era.

Humanity doesn't change. If you get up off your ass and do shit instead of complaining about getting triggered, and running off to your little hugboxes and safe spaces, you too can build a life that the next generation or two will claim you somehow stole from them.

And you'll laugh in their faces as well, or you'll shake your cane at them and scream for them to get off your lawn.

Anyway, I gotta get back to work. Stay thirsty, junior. ;-)
