Hello! I've been interested in computers and electronics for most of my young life and want to take my self a little bit further into the world of programming. I was was wondering what type of programming do "hackers" and crackers use to do what they want to do. I like to know how to do things even if I won't ever use them in my normal life. I don't plan on doing anything illegal and would really like to learn how to remotely access other computers/consoles from another computer. (I know this sounds shady AF but trust me I'm not going to do anything illegal)
Also I wouldn't mind learning how to make software and websites as well.

Eric: There isn't really just one specific language, it's a variety of languages. It really depends on what you want to do. I guess for making viruses like keyloggers, C++ would be the ideal language. C languages are great cause Windows was built with C languages so the victim doesn't have to download something like the python compiler to get the virus. Maybe with reverse shell, which is basically like a remote connection attack, I believe python would be a good language for that. Python is a really flexible language made for a lot of things. For web hacking such as SQL injection and etc, you would have to learn about networks, protocols, and web languages like HTML, CSS, PHP and SQL and maybe a few more if your really into it. However, If you do not want to learn every single detail into coding your hacks, then Kali Linux is a great tool to do ethical hacking. Basically, in Kali Linux you have a pre made tools designed for hacking, all you have to do is enter a bunch of commands.

Eric:
There is no specific language that is used for hacking. hacking is a very diverse practice. you will have to fill your brain with so much information, they become a part of you. you will have to live in the computer, network, internet, packet, server, protocols and other stuffs. good luck on hacking, I don't want to discourage you. What is your likelihood of success on actually hacking into someone's computer without knowing that person or worked for that person's organization before? so small, you won't believe it.
Captain:
all of them and even plain html using ascii.
Here is a real hack, in flashchat on some servers its possible to kick people off the server simply by using a smiley face followed by an img src and a big picture.
Hacking isnt just about programming, as my example demonstrates, something you cant be taught, you have to try different things and think outside the box.
Ticci:
I asked this same question and got reported. '-' It seems you want to be a gray hat hacker or something along those lines. You will need to get professional, LEGAL software. I'm not sure where to get it (cause nobody answers my questions) but you may have to pay a significant amount, so I don't recommend getting something from a shady site. Sorry for not having the full answer.
chrisjbsc:
Look up Remote Desktop Protocol in Technet.com
Fish Not Free:
Micro keylogger can be used for hacking.
William:
As they say "You aren't a hacker if you don't know C."
Corey:
just depends on what they are doing…If you want to program I would recommend starting with Java
