Some days ago the availability of the fourth RC version of Wifislax64 1.1 has been announced. This version has important new features, which further improve the operation of this curious distribution.
Wifislax is a distribution that is exclusively dedicated to the monitoring of Wireless networks, also including other tools to monitor security against Man in The Middle attacks or even the security of mobile phones. This distribution is Spanish and is developed by the wireless security team.
As for the news, Most of the distribution packages have been updated to the latest version, in programs like filezilla, python, hydra, qbittorrent... The Kernel has also been updated, which has gone from version 4.9.38 to version 4.9.39.
As well performance has been improved, something that has been achieved thanks to the division of the system into blocks of 64 kilobytes, thus lowering the consumption of resources. The menu has also been modified, which has been created with the .menu extension, thus solving a problem that existed with the Slackware menu update.
As well the fstab has been optimized, something that makes the operating system go faster and there are never slowdowns as before. Finally, security patches have been applied and Wireshark packages have been updated.
Without a doubt, Wifislax64 1.1 is on a good path and it is expected that the long-awaited stable version will finally be released soon. Wifislax is one of the most used operating systems in the world of Wireless security, since it allows us to check the security of our Wi-Fi network without having command console knowledge. The operating system contains numerous graphical interfaces for programs such as Reaver, making it much easier to check the security of our Wi-Fi network.
If you would like to download the latest version, make it through here!, since even though it is an RC version, the most common use of Wifislax is in Live CD format. Of course, we are not responsible for the use that you give to the program, since its original use is to monitor the security of your network, not to do it with that of the neighbors.
