BackTrack v.2.0 Final is Out

BackTrack is the most Top rated linux live distribution focused on penetration testing. The long-awaited (~5 months) tool has reached it’s Version 2.0 final stage. There are a lot of changes since the last Version as mentioned on the Changelog. To name just a few :

  • We included a bunch of new drivers into the latest release and where able to make the desired packet injection functionalities to a wider audience.
  • By supporting the new ALFA USB hi-power devices there is now a great USB wireless dongle available which allows us to connect an external antenna and use BackTrack to attack even on my Intel Macbook or VMware
  • Even broadcom 43xx based cards should be able to inject – a bit sloppy but should work.
  • The following drivers are now on our CD:
    • madwifi-ng (Patched for Injection)
    • hostap (Patched for Injection)
