Blackbuntu

I recently installed a new operating system called Blackbuntu.

It's made for penetration testing(ethical hacking), and comes with a lot of really cool tools.  I havent had too much time to play around with it yet but it looks pretty neat so far.  The only problem is that for some reason it can't connect to my home network and every time i try it crashes.  It can connect to other networks fine, like when i wifi tether my phone, but when i connect to my normal network with WPA encryption it crashes.

Aside from that glitch though, the list of tools it comes with is quite impressive and i look forward to playing around with them in the future.  It comes loaded with a bunch of stuff for info gathering, network mapping, vulnerability identification, penetration, privilege escalation, maintaining access, radio network analyses, voip analysis, digital forensics, reverse engineering, and more.  Thats a lot of hacker tools!

Unfortunately if I can't resolve the network issue i may not get to use them and might have to switch to a similar disto like backtrack or something.  Anybody have any experience with pen-testing distros, any recommendations?  I like that blackbuntu is built on ubuntu which i've heard is easy to learn and has good hardware compatibility.  Blackbuntu recognized my wifi card and most other hardware just fine and didn't take much effort to set up.

Here's a screenshot, let me know what you think, of this or other similar distros or tools:

  2. you can download it from the website at the bottom of the post, blackbuntu.com

    download the iso and then i used a program called "unetbootin" to create a bootable usb stick from the blackbuntu iso, or you could burn it to a dvd i guess. then you can run it off the usb stick as a live distro or you could install it to your hard drive from there(which is what i did because my usb stick is only 4GB)

  11. @electric addict,
    not really "better" than backtrack, but easier to use and since it's based on ubuntu it tends to have built in support for more hardware.
