My Name is Andy Cronin! I’m a Geek in that I’m slightly addicted to technology and want to know all about it from how it use to work, how it currently works and how is it going to work.
I’m currently studying in my fourth and final year of Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures at the University of Abertay Dundee. My course is seen as a bit of an oxymoron to my friends, let me explain, Hacking Ethically is a slightly odd idea. The way I’ve found to explain it in the simplest way is, Hacking things to make things hack-proof!
To which most go OHhh, ok then!
The skills i’ve picked up along my course are numerous and fascinating, including;
* Object Oriented Programming (C#)
* Password Cracking
* Basic Databases
* Web Development
* Google Hacking
* Hardware & Software Troubleshooting
* Mobile Programming (Java)
* Pentration Testing
* Digital Forensics
I Also have undertaken personal projects looking into;
- Dismantling a Botnet
- Countering a DDOS Attack
- Drive By Healing
