A Hacker’s Bliss : Backtrack Operating System

Download here: You can download several different types of images, including a 784MB USB/DVD

Ahhh. What a bliss
That’s what I prompted when I first popped in the Backtrack 2.0 Live CD

Awesome Speed ! Awesome Power ! Now we all know that Backtrack 2.0 /3.0 is out and a lot of you might have evenyou’re your hands dirty on that. EVERY Black Hat , Grey Hat , or White Hat can bid bye to Microsoft. No need to run an OS with a hundred buggy programs running in the background, and all the lame firewalls that still slap adware/rootkits and all kind of malware that infects , while allowing users to be unknowingly bombarderd by megabytes of useless commercial crap . Backtrack today is one of preffered operating systems used by hackers all around the world due to the hacker ready interface, built in library of greatest tools, be it your favourite traffic sniffer Wireshark, or port scanner Nmap. Last but not the least the philosophy behind a Open Source Software is dear to a the hacker- the quest for the freedom. Yeah we all know, the Linux is free , Linux prevents Viruses, blah blah. But that’s not the compelling reason . The power offered is the real thing that makes it a million times better than the MS would be. That’s the way computers should be J Backtrack is the best of two worlds: it caters to the needs of both the experienced (Greyhat | Black Hat ) user that wants a powerful and reliable desktop operating system, usable without constant fiddling, a godsent distro for the plethora of new users that are prepared to move from proprietry boundations to freedom- from Windows to Linux.

“BackTrack is a Linux-based distribution dedicated to penetration testing or hacking (depending on how
you look at it). It contains more than 300 of the world's most popular open source or freely distributable hacking tools.

PC World Mag

BackTrack , I again insist is the

easiest method around to get free access to 100s of assorted tools around, if the Linux part doesn't scare you. For the script-kiddie fond of working on Windows box, Backtrack won’t be much trouble too. They can get up and running using BackTrack with little or no Linux knowledge. The KDE GUI is simply amazing. For instance, setting up Snort is a one-click process (try that outside of BackTrack you’ll know).
Password hacking process also works like breeze in BackTrack.

The thing I personally love about BT and such is the freedom , no reason, you’re not required to pay

for anything, the web was meant to be free and it should remain free, come what may. The feature worth mentioning about Backtrack, or any other Linux distro for that matter- is the power it offers! Sheer Power, at zero cost ! For instance, I love to wardrive, you can try this: 1. Run kismet: And you might never go back to the Microsoft’s funny OS, which can only run NetStumblers and such. It seems as if the developers forgot to complete NetStumbler , in view of their proprietry motives :-) You'r a hacker or a wannabe, arent'you? So as soon as you boot up Backtrack, play with the most powerful Tools : Wget, cURL, Pavuk, Etherape, Scapy... or even just try the simplest ones: first run -say- Deluge or Transmission and then type in a terminal
lsof

or
netstat -l

ab mujhe batao tumhe kya lagta hai :-)

The Complete List of tools being bundled by Backtrack 3.0 final and their wiki description is here

Information Gathering
0trace 0.01

This tool enables the user to perform hop enumeration ("traceroute") within an established TCP connection, such as a HTTP or SMTP session. This is opposed to sending stray packets, as traceroute-type tools usually do. The important benefit of using an established connection and matching TCP packets to send a TTL-based probe is that such traffic is happily allowed through by many stateful firewalls and other defenses without further inspection (since it is related to an entry in the connection table). Info: http://lcamtuf.coredump.cx/
Ass

ASS is a Autonomous System Scanner. Because routing protocols use autonomous systems to distinguish between various routing "domains" and various ways to communicate, you need something which works like a TCP port scanner but knows more than one protocol. Info: http://phenoelit-us.org/irpas/docu.html#ass
dig

dig (domain information groper) is a flexible tool for interrogating DNS name servers. It performs DNS lookups and displays the answers that are returned from the name server(s) that were queried. Info: http://linux.about.com/od/commands/l/blcmdl1_dig.htm

dnstracer 1.5

dnstracer determines where a given Domain Name Server (DNS) gets its information from, and follows the chain of DNS servers back to the servers which know the data. Info: http://www.mavetju.org/unix/dnstracer.php
dnswalk

Dnswalk is a DNS debugger. It performs zone transfers of specified domains, and checks the database in numerous ways for internal consistency, as well as accuracy. Info: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dnswalk/
dns-bruteforce

This tool is used to made a brute force on name resolution.The idea of that tool is to resolve all words dot domain name. To be more useful the tool uses multi threading; one thread for each name server. Classical brute forcers are sequential. With this method we cut the dictionary in n blocs ( n is the number of dns servers) and distribute these blocs to name servers. The tool is now in the project revhosts, new updates are only available in revhosts. Info: http://www.revhosts.net/DNSBruteforce
