This week you we've talked from the release of the latest version of Kali Linux, a distribution that is labeled "ethical hacking" for all the tools it includes. Yesterday another update of another distro of this type was released: BlackArch Linux 2019.06.1. The Kali Linux update released this week does not seem of great importance, the highlight being that its NetHunter is already available on more than 50 devices (Android), but we cannot say the same for the new version of the ethical hacking distribution released. Yesterday.
For starters, BlackArch Linux 2019.06.1 includes over 150 new tools to try (ahem, hack) the security of devices, networks, etc. To continue, the kernel has been updated to the latest stable version, that is, to Linux 5.1.4, as well as the operating system installer to version 1.1.1. On the other hand, the "jedi-vim" plugin has been added that provides the jedi autocomplete library to the VIM editor, along with several other updated VIM plugins.
BlackArch Linux 2019.06.1 arrives with Linux 5.1.4
What by its numbering is understood to be the June 2019 release from BlackArch Linux, although we are still in May, it also comes with support for txvt-unicode y xresources, xdefaults, tools, configuration files, kernel packages and window manager menus for Awesome, Flubox and Openbox updated. As can be expected with each update, bugs have also been fixed to improve overall system performance and reliability.
The new version is available on the download page from BlackArch Linux. Like many other Linux distributions, can be used in Live mode, which will allow us not to install it on the computer and use it only when we want to "test" the security of a device. And it is that, although it seems that no, thanks to a distribution like this (Wifiway) I changed the passwords and the security protocol of my routers.
