Learn C.  Unix and Linux are written in C, as is most software for those
platforms.  Windows is written in C and C++.  Most exploits are written
in C.  Almost all of the buffer overflow exploits and papers available
are for C or C++ programs (with C++ being the minority).  For
understanding buffer overflows, some assembly language is helpful.  Some
skill in shell scripting and/or perl is useful for system administration
and security as well.

	I was wondering what the first and best language to learn would
be for
	someone new in the security field in order to understand the
exploits better
	and all of thoes things.
	Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
