win32,shell code,shell programming,shell scripting?


Dear friends am so much confused about the languages.
I Want to concentrate in ethical hacking field. But i wanna create my own programs.
I know c & cpp well.
Then i started to study win32 programs,but suddenly a feeling shellcode covers both windows and linux programming. Then it will be good for me???
Then i have a doubt which is helpfull for me to achieve my aim?
SHELL CODE? SHELL SCRIPTING? SHELL PROGRAMMING? OR WIN32?
WHATS IS THE MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE?

Which type of languages i wanna study to become a good ethical hacker programmer.?
Some are saying knowledge about Assembly language is also helps?

pls give a detailed description about these.
Because i already googled a lot but not satisfied with the answers.

First, NO ONE HERE is going to help you with hacking related things. We have no way of KNOWING what your intentions are. And if you already know C and C++ well, why are you confused about programming languages?

No idea what will be good for you, since we don't know your goals or aims. And "shell code" for Windows is a batch file...which is not portable between Linux and Windows. You CAN load cygwin on Windows, but in order for anyone to run Linux bash scripts on Windows, they'd first have to load cygwin. Even then, it's not a REAL Linux environment, and has limitations.

Shell programming is the same as scripting. And no idea what you mean by "win32"...there is no "win32" programming language.

Spell out your words, please. And what would you like people here to tell you about shell scripting that Google can't? What are you 'not satisfied' with?

Learn whatever language you want. Shell scripting can be useful, so can assembly, and pretty much ANY other language you can think of. Depends on your goals and what the particular problem you have to solve is.

Am respecting your answer sir. You said the right thing,i know that. But i really wanna find out the loop holes in the securities with my own program and wanna help others. Because i am seeing a good career in it. And i wanna make a "A WORLD WITHOUT HACKING ENVIRONMENT".

The main thing is I DON'T LIKE TO USE ANY OTHERS SOFTWARES ! I WANNA CREATE MY OWN!
ONLY FOR STUDY PURPOSE I ASKED , BECAUSE AM CONFUSED IN WHICH WAY I WILL MOVE.
IF U HAVE A GOOD KNOWLEDGE ABOUT IT PLEASE GIVE SUGGESTIONS SIR.

AND ONCE AGAIN THANKS FOR YOUR REPLY. IT IS IMPRESSIVE.
(and my username is only like cracker, just for a fun i put that name, nothing else,my real name is melvin)

Please, spell out your words. And there will NEVER be a world without hacking, and I hope there never is. Please know the difference between 'hacking' and 'cracking'.

So go do it. C and C++ are perfectly good languages. Asking about shell scripts isn't the same thing as asking about security related issues/holes. Look at Security Focus, CVE, or NVD as a start. Look at how programs are written and how they interact.

Again, you need to spell out your words. It's "you", not "U". "Want to" not "wanna". If you want to study, go to Google and put "common computer security vulnerabilities" into the box, and press ENTER. Read the results...start there.
