I am very excited to share with you the latest download figures for the Live Hacking 1.2 Linux distribution. I posted V1.2 less than one month ago and there has been a staggering 2,600 downloads (and rising).
For those of you that don’t know, the Live Hacking CD is a Linux distribution packed with tools for ethical hacking and penetration testing. New in V1.2 is the metasploit penetration testing framework and some new IPv6 tools.
The Live Hacking CD is a ‘Live CD’ that runs directly from the CD and doesn’t need to be installed on your hard-drive. Once booted you can use the included tools to perform penetration tests and ethically hack on your own network to ensure that it is secure from outside intruders. As well as the standard Linux networking tools the Live Hacking CD has tools for DNS enumeration and reconnaissance as well as utilities for foot-printing, password cracking and network sniffing. It also has programs for spoofing and a set of wireless networking utilities.
