Kali Linux Alternative: BackBox Linux 4.6 Released With Updated Hacking Tools
While Kali Linux is considered an ideal operating system for ethical hackers, BackBox Linux is another alternative that has caught my attention in recent times.
Recently, Raffaele Forte, the maintainer of BackBox Linux operating system announced the release of the latest version of the Ubuntu-based hacking OS i.e. BackBox Linux 6.8.
This operating system comes with pre-packaged cyber security tools just like Kali Linux but also has some other cool features like the option to anonymize your machine before launching an attack.
Talking about the latest release, BackBox Linux 6.8, it’s powered by the Linux kernel 4.2 series that’s currently being used in Ubuntu 15.10.
The operating system also comes with updated Ruby programming language that means Ruby 2.2 is now enabled by default.
