Backtrack to be Reborn as Kali Linux – The Best Pentest Distro Ever!

Very interesting news from the Backtrack development team. Backtrack is in the process of a major overhaul and will be reborn into a new distribution named Kali!

Apparently Backtrack was a pet project used by the developers, now that it is THE Pentesting Platform, they want to make it better than ever.

Which is great news for us!

From the Backtrack Linux Website:

“What’s happened in the past year? We have been quietly developing the necessary infrastructure and laying the foundation for our newest penetration testing distribution as well as building over 300 Debian compliant packages and swearing in 8 different languages.

These changes brought with them an incredible amount of work, research and learning but are also leading us down the path to creating the best, and most flexible, penetration testing distribution we have ever built, dubbed “Kali”.”

Can’t wait to check it out!
