Great news ‘Kali Linux’ or ‘Backrack 6” has been released with more than 300 penetration testing tools, completely free

It has been 7 years since the release of the first version of BackTrack Linux, with a fresh start from the earlier versions, the developers have decided to use new technologies and processes as well as changing the base operating systems from Ubuntu to Debian.

The default root username and password is same “root”/“toor“.  Kali Linux can be downloaded here.

The creators thought they would change the name from BackTrack because with all the significant changes in their distribution, they felt that it needed to convey this in the project name. They felt “BackTrack 6″ didn’t do justice to the efforts of the past year, and wouldn’t convey the new message to our users.
