I suggest you learning C++ and PHP, both languages are very important
(not only when you talk about Computer Security).
And when you want to go further, I propose programming Assembly.
Assembly is not that easy to learn but when you're good at it, some
things look different for you, e.g. Shellcode or Assembly Code which
is very often used in Exploits.
That's it. Some people may suggest you that you have to learn the Perl
Programming Language, but at my opinion it's enough beeing good at
C++, PHP and Assembly ;)
I hope I could help!

I want to begin with learning programming to increase my
security, but I don't know where to begin. Can someone tell me which
programming language is good to start with, and pherhaps what book
and/or online guides I should take a look at?
It would be nice that if I learn a programming language that it
shouldn't be much work to understand another one.
I am on Linux and Windows.
Thanks for the help.
