BackBox 4 tools arsenal !
« on: October 17, 2014, 08:37:14 AM »
[!] IMPORTANT Read ALL please!


BackBox 4.0 has now a fully customizable tools arsenal!

New packages have been created, one for each of the Auditing categories, which bring with them all the package of that specific pentesting field. So you can customize your box and install just what you really need, conforming to the BackBox philosophy of lightness, simplicity and completeness.

The packages we introduced to implement this new concept are:

backbox-documentation-reporting
backbox-exploitation
backbox-forensics-analysis
backbox-information-gathering
backbox-maintaining-access
backbox-miscellaneous
backbox-mobile-analysis
backbox-privilege-escalation
backbox-reverse-engineering
backbox-social-engineering
backbox-stress-testing
backbox-tools
backbox-voip-analysis
backbox-vulnerability-assessment
backbox-wireless-analysis


EVERY USER IS STRONGLY ADVISED TO INSTALL backbox-tools package in order to get all the categories and the tools as before, and conform to the new packaging structure. It's as simple as:

Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install backbox-tools

For any problem let us know.

Hey ZEROF

Sorry for the dumb question (I don't have my BackBox laptop here) - but are these tools different to the the ones already on there or does bulk it up with additional tools/features?

Hi r3k0hu,

It' just part of "philosophy of lightness". If one day you want to add tool section to BBox it will be just apt-get install "name of section" you want to use. It's idea for future and we hope to see how it will works. Kind of beta, but good use for professional pentesters.

Removing section is not possible in this time, because that can make some dependency issues, but we will see if that can be made in the future.

Have a nice day.
