I love Computer Security.
I remember it from when it was called “phreaking” and white, black and blue weren’t hat colors, but ‘box’ colors. I used to have a folder where I’d print and store information about computer viruses (both of them) – how to identify them, and how to remove them. A ‘hard-copy-anti-virus’ if you will.
Then came the Internet, along with Aleph One’s ‘smashing the stack’, Rain Forrest Puppy’s SQL injection guide (‘how I hacked packetstorm’) and next thing you know my hobby becomes a decent way to make a living, not to mention an honorable profession. I think what makes the Security field so special is the fact that it’s both a hobby and a profession for most of the people who work in it. Almost everybody I know that works in IT security truly enjoy their work and wouldn’t trade it for anything else.
