BackTrack 5 Vulnerability Apps

BackTrack Linux is now known as Kali Linux. You may read all Kali Linux articles and tutorial at http://linuxbsdos.com/category/kali-linux.

The beauty of Linux and other Free Software operating systems is that you can roll your own, and load any type of applications and tools that you want on it. That freedom to tinker has given us distributions that are specialized for desktop, server, router and multimedia use. It has also given us distributions that are targeted at security professionals.

One of those, is BackTrack, a hackers delight, one that is loaded with all the best Free Software and Open Source penetration testing applications available. The latest edition is BackTrack 5, code-named Revolution. We are actually at BackTrack 5 R2. Keep in mind that BackTrack is not a distribution for newbies. This is serious stuff.

But every person has a different starting point. Some newbies start off in Linux with a simple, newbie-friendly distribution – Ubuntu, Mint, Mandriva, for example. Others want to jump into the thick of things, where the lessons are hard, where you are likely to break something (if you have no clue what you are doing), but where the fun is plenty. “Fun” in this context, is open to definition.

If this article is your introduction to BackTrack, take a few moments to view these screen shots. They give you an idea of the type of applications you will find on BackTrack 5. Download link is just below the last screen shot. You might also want to read Install BackTrack 5 Revolution 2 on external hard drive.

    1. Kali is a Debian-based distribution, so it uses the APT package management tool. To install software on it from the command line, use the apt command. There’s also at least one graphical interface for installing software on the system.

  3. ~# apt-get install rfkill
    Reading package lists… Done

    Hi guys this is my problem i have awired connection from my phone any suggestions contact me via icecreamninja94@gmail.com I NEED HELP PLEASE

    1. Doing a search on Kali 2017.1, I can see that package in the list of results. Why don’t you update the package database first, using sudo apt update, then see if you can install it. You might want to search for it first, using apt search rfkill.
