Yo Progamist Galaxy, I m back. I am really very sorry for keeping you all wait for so long as I was a bit busy with my personal work and studies and projects and tuitions and every S#IT in this world.
Firstly, I will like to express my deepest excitement for the ProGamist’s own video game awards. We’ve done BIG (I mean it).
Me and Subham Singh went to Kolkata to attend an ethical hacking workshop-cum-gaming tournament. The experience was too good at the workshop hosted by Mr. Tariq Ahmed (Though I didn’t find the city to be as good as I was expecting).

I got the opportunity to talk with Mr. Tariq Ahmed personally. (Though the crowd surrounding us as if there was a marriage going on)
Here is the embedded Video.. (Please do not criticize my hairstyle because i know it really SUCKS.)
AMAN GOYAL TAKING INTERVIEW OF TARIQ AHMED
So, Here goes the questions ?asked by me in the Interview…
Sir: Ok.. But are you in Kolkata for some time? Me: No Sir, Unfortunately not. My train will be arriving after 2-3 hours. I specially came to attend your workshop from Siliguri.
Me: So, Should we start? Only very few questions. Sir: Hmmm… Ok.
Me: I’ll like to ask you what was your inspiration to enter the world of hacking?
Sir: I don’t consider my self a hacker.. from the beginning I m saying that I’m a security consultant.. I’m Cisco Certified, Microsoft Certified, I have Ethical experience.. This is the first time I’m on training. From the last one year I’ve been on training.. So overall I don’t consider my self a hacker.. I am a security Consultant.
Me: Ok… Your first attempt in hacking was an ethical one or unethical one?
Sir: Hmmmmm… (thinks for a second) See.. It was hehe…!! (Laughs).. My first attempt wasunethical.
Me:.. hehe.. Interesting.. Ok.. Time to move on.. I have prepared some random questions for you to clarify my doubts, I will expect you to answer briefly.
Sir: Ok.. Sure.
Me: Sir, can you install any edition of Windows 7 from a windows 7 DVD. For example: Windows 7 Ultimate from Windows 7 Home or any other edition?
Sir: No, No.. Those are Pirated Stuff.. by the way who said you..?
Me: hmmm… a friend of mine.
Sir: Ok.. (trolls) hehe.. What’s the next question?
Me: Can you update a pirated Windows XP genuinely from Microsoft’s’ website?
Sir: Pirated Version..?!?!?!
Sir: hmmm.. (thinks for a while) Yeah.. There are ways to update by using third party patches.. (Sorry can’t disclose the name of the patch)
Me:Can you hack a FACEBOOK account without the use of a third party software?
Sir: Hmmm… No.. There is no way such.. But you can use the ways I taught in my workshopnow like by using phishing, key-loggers etc.
Me: What will be your message to the young Indian hackers who seriously want to make their career in the field of ethical hacking.
Sir: Hmmm.. Currently if you see, every state’s Police Department is making its own website, if you presently see Kolkata Police, they are hiring lot of fresh talents. There is a lot of demands now. Kolkata Police is hiring a lot of Security Consultants and Programmers and I will say that this field is very new. I will suggest them to seriously work hard and seriously make their career in the field of hacking.
Me: Thank you Sir for your precious time. I hope you enjoyed this session. Your workshop on ethical workship was really cool and inspiring. Again thank you from me and on behalf of my readers.
Sir: My Pleasure, Haha.. (trolls) by the ways from did you get all these questions? Me: Hmmm… Made my self.
Sir: Ok. It was really nice talking with you. Best of luck for your life.
