Shielder is proud to announce an event that will be held at Polytechnic University of Turin

The purpose of this event is to offer participants a quick and charming introduction to the complex world of Information Security and Penetration Testing.

A Penetration Test in simple words is an attack on a computer system that seeks for the weaknesses of the target system, which can potentially let malicious users (attackers) to gain access to the system's data by taking control of it.

BackBox Linux 4.5.1 released

After having received several requests of issues that the users had with VM installation of BackBox the Team has decided to dig into the issue deeper and after investigation which involved almost the entire team has come to a conclusion.

Long story short, BackBox 4.5 has encountered some problems related to guest-additions and vmware-tools which were causing malfunctioning of some parts. The finding was that vmware-tools and guest-additions were conflicting with the specific kernel version with which BackBox was released.

BackBox Team has finally fixed the issue after finding the root cause and would like to announce that for the first time we have a revisioned version of BackBox release, which is BackBox 4.5.1 (rev 1).

In this revision release we have fixed the problems with VMware/Vbox and APT and it is fully functional and hopefully with no more troubles.
