,----[ Quote ]
| Having an arsenal of penetration testing tools at the ready -- without having
| to actually install any of them -- is without question a major time-saver for
| information security pros. That's why BackTrack is so popular.


Security distribution BackTrack 4 with CUDA support

,----[ Quote ]
| The Remote Exploit Team has released a Pre Final version of the BackTrack 4
| (BT4) security distribution (code named 'pwnsauce') as a 1.3 GB ISO image
| file. BackTrack offers a wide range of tools to enable users and
| administrators to test the security of items ranging from web applications to
| RFID systems. These include LAN and WLAN sniffers, password crackers,
| vulnerability scanners, the Metasploit exploit framework and several others.


BackTrack 4 - Hacking galore

,----[ Quote ]
| BackTrack is a powerful hacking suite. It is well made, with stylish touches
| that add to the overall feel of the distribution. It runs very fast in the
| live mode, even faster than most installed distributions. Most importantly,
| the array of tool is rich, well balanced and overall quite impressive.
| The Beta version did throw a few errors here and there, but it was nothing
| major. Small consistency issues also arise, and there's the lack of support
| for Ext4, which I expect will be solved soon. Documentation needs to be
| improved, starting with the website SSL certificate and continuing with lots
| of questions regarding the general usage.


Backtrack security testing distro another great tool to convince people of

,----[ Quote ]
| Many times I have experienced windows system administrators who just didn't
| care about Linux.
| These people are not against Linux, they just don't have very much of an
| opinion about it.
| If I try to convince someone like that, I can take my whole live just trying
| to convince them to even try it.
| But I found a way to make them experience Linux.


Backtrack Linux on a Thumbdrive: Can Security Testing Get Any Easier?

,----[ Quote ]
| I have dealt with a lot of Linux distros since I first learned the power of
| my newfound penguin friend. He was free unlike a Microsoft or Apple product,
| had thousands of available programs (also free), and looked damn classy while
| he was in control of my computer.


BackTrack4 choose Ubuntu!

,----[ Quote ]
| I talked with Mati Aharoni about new release now in developement, and him say
| to me that has taken the decision to abandon slackware for choose Ubuntu in
| next BackTrack version (4).



Review: BackTrack 2 security live CD

| distros -- Whax and Auditor Security Collection -- BackTrack
| bundles more than 300 security tools.


Hacking tools: A new version of BackTrack helps ethical hackers
