Live Hacking Penetration Testing DVD V1.3 Released

A new version of Live Hacking’s free Linux distribution designed for penetration testing and ethical hacking has been released. V1.3 has updated over 140 packages including Metasploit and Firefox.

New in this release is Metasploit Framework 3.6 which can be used to test your network using the framework’s internal database of known weaknesses and exploits. New to V3.6 are post-exploitation modules that can be run on exploited systems to perform actions such as gathering additional information, pivoting to other networks and elevating system privileges. V3.6 also adds 15 new exploits making a total of 648 exploit modules, 342 auxiliary modules and 23 post modules.

The Live Hacking Linux distribution is a ‘Live DVD’ which boots directly from your DVD and doesn’t need to be installed on your computer. As well as the standard Linux networking tools the Live Hacking DVD has tools for DNS enumeration and reconnaissance as well as utilities for foot-printing, password cracking and network sniffing. It also has programs for spoofing and a set of wireless networking utilities.

Now that the pool of free IPv4 addresses has been depleted, the Live Hacking DVD includes the THC-IPV6 tool, a set of tools to attack the inherent protocol weaknesses of IPv6 and ICMP6.
