BackTrack – Penetration Testing (pentest) Live CD!

A quick check in DistroWatch today revealed that remote-exploit has made available its first public Beta release of BackTrack 3.0. The Live CD is a must for those who are interested in running security check up and/or penetration test (pentest).

The SLAX-based LiveCD combines the best of two GNU/Linux distributions Whax and Auditor that specialised in the same field. Combining the best features from both distributions, and paying special attention to small details, this is probably the best version of either distributions to ever come out.

The Live CD comes with the usual tools for security testing like vulnerability scanners, port scanners, network sniffers, wardriving tools, bluetooth snarfer as well as popular exploit archives (SecurityFocus, milw0rm).
