Learn to Hack | TuxRadar Linux
Essential disclaimer: Hacking is bad/illegal Mmmmmkay? If it's not your computer and you're doing bad stuff, anyway.

'There are two rules of computer security: one – don’t buy a computer; and two – if you have to buy a computer, don’t turn it on. If you break these rules then you’ll be opening yourself up to potential problems. No system is 100% safe from hackers, but by following a few simple steps you can make yours much harder for intruders to attack.'
