BackTrack : The hacker's haven

Posted by Shashank Krishna Tuesday, June 29, 2010


Whether you are hacking wireless, exploiting servers, learning, performing a web application assessment, or social-engineering a client, BackTrack is the one-stop-shop for all of your security needs. BackTrack is intended for all audiences from the most savvy security professionals to early newcomers to the information security field. BackTrack promotes a quick and easy way to find and update the largest database of security tool collection to-date.

The evolution of BackTrack spans many years of development, penetration tests, and unprecedented help from the security community. BackTrack originally started with earlier versions of live Linux distributions called Whoppix, IWHAX, and Auditor. When BackTrack was developed, it was designed to be an all in one live cd used on security audits and was specifically crafted to not leave any remnants of itself on the laptop. It has since expanded to being the most widely adopted penetration testing framework in existence and is used by the security community all over the world.

Offensive Security has announced the release of BackTrack 4, an Ubuntu-based live DVD containing a large collection of tools for security audits, computer forensics and penetration testing: “BackTrack 4 final is out and along with this release come some exciting news, updates, and developments. BackTrack 4 has been a long and steady road, with the release of a beta last year, we decided to hold off on releasing BackTrack 4 final until it was perfected in every way, shape and form. This release includes a new kernel, a larger and expanded toolset repository, custom tools that you can only find on BackTrack, and more importantly, fixes to all major bugs that we knew of. This release has received an overwhelming support from the community and we are grateful to everyone who has contributed to the success of this release.”

Name of some tools that are included in BackTrack
1. Metasploit integration
2. RFMON Injection capable wireless drivers
3. Kismet
4. AutoScan-Network
5. Nmap
6. Ettercap
7. Wireshark (formerly known as Ethereal)
8. BeEF (Browser Exploitation Framework)
