Ahsan Tahir, another rising star from Karachi, Pakistan is just 13 years old and is selected as Hall Of Fame in ethical hacking. Previously iTechHut covered story of Shameer Amir who was ranked 3rd in ethical hacking. We had covered detailed story about him how he started all this ethical hacking and who is Shameer Amir.

Ahsan Tahir started ethical hacking from searching on Google. About one year ago when his own developed website was hacked by someone, Tahir wanted to fix bugs in his website so he entered into ethical hacking. He used Google search engine and youtube for different videos on ethical hacking. Then he realized that he can get paid by identifying bugs in different platform or can get appreciated.

For other people interested in ethical hacking he suggests instead of spending time on Facebook or any other app, people should learn how to hack ethically, spot bugs and then get paid. He further explains people should ask questions in order to learn, if they won't they won't learn. A person can not get success if he says he is a hacker and he does not need to learn. One should get advice of an expert hacker once he is stuck somewhere.

About spending his time, he spends 6-8 hours in learning hacking and actually practicing it. He goes to his school, he is in 8th class, spends his time for homework, spends some spare time and then hacking. He loves to play football and guitar.

Ahsan has also got appreciation certificate from Hackerone platform. Normally US Department Of Defence can pay only US citizens, so instead of payment they announced to induct Ahsan Tahir in Hall Of Fame. His father was bit hesitant initially but when Ahsan got the bounty money and appreciation letter he then allowed him to pursue this field.
