During his fifth grade H.D. studied BASIC programming, by seventh grade H.D was introduced to BBS scene. In high school Moore developed hacking programs for AOL and IRC. In 1997 H.D. dropped out of high school to concentrate on computer hacking as a result he have developed one of the first remote control trojans in visual basic only a few months ahead of Back Orifice. By the time H.D. was 17, he has released NLog - nmap log management and analysis tool. NLog brought H.D. Moore to the spotlight when he was invited to deliver a presentation at SANS Institute.
At the age of 17 H.D. started working for CSC developing various security assessment tools to test military networks. At the same time, he releazed several open-source security tools like Spidermap, phpDistributedPortScanner, and others.

While attending Defcon in 2002, H D Moore was instrumental in conceptualizing the Open Source Vulnerability Database (OSVDB) and participated in its original design.
 Metasploit Framework
The Metasploit Framework is H.D.'s largest contribution to the security community. It was released in July of 2003 with a goal of simplifying effort required to develop working exploits. This tool was released to counter a growing tendency of exploits being released to a select few paying subscribers and the overall commercialization of security community. http://www.metasploit.com/
 A Month of Browser Bugs
In July of 2006 he have once again communicated his philosophy of open disclosure by organizing A Month of Browser Bugs where for the duration of a month a unique exploit was released every day. http://browserfun.blogspot.com/
