Re: backtrack vs back box

There are a lot of pen test distros: http://blog.rootcon.org/2012/02/10-pent ... s-you.html

Just focus on learning the core concepts. The tools and distros are just for convenience.
The day you stop learning is the day you start becoming obsolete.

Re: backtrack vs back box

Yah I find backtrack the best one as it has so many tools and it just works. Its great for newbi to get started with without worrying about dependancies and all the other fun stuff.

Then I perfer to use Ubuntu and install tools I want or mac with home brew.

Re: backtrack vs back box

If you are new to linux, try Ubuntu or Mepis first and get acquainted with basic commands and concepts. Then jump into Backtrack.

The latest revision is Backtrack 5r2, r3 is due very soon. You can get it here:

http://www.backtrack-linux.org/

along with lots of good free info

No one can answer that for you, so try it yourself and decide. It's free after all, you've got nothing to lose.

A lot of the tools on either distribution can easily be ported into any other Linux distribution. If you're familiar with Backtrack, then you should be able to quickly notice any differences in Backbox and decide whether you like it or not. Personally, I prefer Backtrack to Backbox, simply because I'm used to it and I like where everything is stored.

Re: backtrack vs back box

Why don't you download Back Box, use it in Virtual Box/VMware, and see how you like it...that doesn't take too much time.

No, if you're using Backtrack, why not stick to Backtrack? Why do you feel you need to try Back Track out of all the other pentesting OS's?

No, not needed to wait, install bk5r2 and when bk5r3 comes out you can just uopgrade it with the following commands :

  Code:
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get install beef
reboot


Also, they will post a full update section so there is absolutely no need to wait.

Re: backtrack vs back box

Yah agree I would use backtrack for time being as it have every tool you ever need and dont have to worry about dependcies and all the other stuff.

If you really want BT5 r3 there is a torrent on Pirate bay if you can access it.

Yeah backtrack is the best without any doubt but sometimes they may create more powerfull platform to run tool for example blackbunutu is another pentest os but i think everybody agree that backtrack is much better than it i only wanted to know peoples experience with backbox .

No man i have been waiting for r3 to download from official website its much better besides i have the r2 version

Re: backtrack vs back box

My choice:
BackBox 2.05 Custom.
You can go with any distro.
Modify it. Modify it in a way that it becomes your own distro  ;).
