it seems like a noob question but at the same time you want to show off your hacking skills... what is the point of asking anyway???

breaking WEP with an app don't even require skill or even hacking knowledge. most of the time, the user don't even know what's happening in the background.

If im not mistaken , didnt hacking and pentest refer to the same term?

Penetration Test != hacking ?

in a sense yes. although pentest is more like an official term coming from a consultancy company tongue.gif.

Oh no, it's not.

You need to get written permission of the owner of the system to be tested, inform ISPs if you're testing over the internet, and make sure you know which door you're knocking on, so you don't end up in a system that you don't have permission for. You can't just go around "testing" random systems.

How do you think pentesters learn how to "pentest"? Do you think hackers make a living by only hacking? Most of them are working professionally as "pentesters" or some sort of security expert.

Of course as a pentester you always get permission first prior doing anything.
