BlackArch Linux Now Offers More Than 1700 Ethical Hacking Tools, New ISO Is Out
On the first day of March, the Arch Linux-based BlackArch Linux operating system designed for penetration testing and ethical hacking operations has received a new ISO snapshot.
With over 1700 ethical hacking and pentesting tools pre-installed, BlackArch Linux 2017-03-01 is out and it’s based on the Arch Linux 2017-03-01 install medium released earlier, which has dropped support for 32-bit installations.
However, BlackArch Linux 2017-03-01 is available with separate Live ISOs for both 32-bit and 64-bit computers, as well as a 64-bit OVA image that you can use in either the VirtualBox, QEMU, or VMware virtualization software.
The BlackArch Linux 2017-03-01 ISOs come with more than 50 new penetration testing and hacking tools, an updated installer that has been bumped to version 0.3.3, as well as the Linux 4.9.11 kernel packages that are also present in the Arch Linux 2017-03-01 ISOs.
