BackBox Linux 4 Metapackages

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-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:

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

For any problem let us know.
