For those of you who are not familiar with BackTrack, here’s a brief description directly from the project’s web site,

BackTrack is the result of merging the two innovative penetration testing live linux distributions Auditor and Whax. Backtrack provides a thorough pentesting environment which is bootable via CD, USB or the network (PXE). The tools are arranged in an intuitive manner, and cover most of the attack vectors. Complex environments are simplified, such as automatic Kismet configuration, one click Snort setup, precompiled Metasploit lorcon modules, etc. BackTrack has been dubbed the #1 Security Live CD by, and #32 overall.

Compression Software = 7-zip

We chose to push a new compression program named 7-zip. We did this for two main reasons. First of all, the compression ratios were better than any other tool including rar. But the other reason should be clearly understood by the members of our community. 7-Zip is open source under the GNU LGPL license. For these 2 reasons, I feel this project could use our support.
