BackTrack 5 r2 released!

The last version of the popular linux distribution for pentesting is out!

After months of development, bug fixes, upgrades, and the addition of 42 new tools, we are happy to announce the full release of BackTrack 5 R2 available for download now. Running our custom-built 3.2.6 kernel with the best wireless support available, this is our fastest and best release of BackTrack yet. In the past few weeks, we have had a flood of submissions to our BackTrack Redmine Tracker with submissions for many new tools and dozens of packages that needed to be updated and this has helped to make this one of the strongest releases we’ve ever had.


Once again, our good friends over at Paterva have created a special BackTrack edition of Maltego 3.1.0 for your data mining pleasure and we have also included their recently-released CaseFile tool to help you organize and collate data from numerous sources. If you have never used these tools before, you really need to…they will change the way your interact with data and conduct reconnaissance.

You will also find we have included Metasploit 4.2.0 Community Edition, version 3.0 of the Social Engineer Toolkit, BeEF, and many other tool upgrades too numerous to mention.

In addition to the aforementioned updates and additions, we have also added the following new tools to BackTrack:
