Parrot 3.11 comes with tools for car hacking and patching against Meltdown and Specter

Parrot 3 Desk

Parrot Security OS 3.11 It comes with important improvements and changes with respect to the previous version of the well-known distribution dedicated to computer security. The developers have done an excellent job again and we can now use this distro for ethical hacking with some very interesting news that we will now comment on. One of these changes has been the incorporation of patches to resolve the "fashionable" Meltdown and Specter vulnerabilities that are being talked about so much on social networks and blogs.

In addition to these patches, some bugs from previous versions have also been corrected and tools have been added, updated the existing ones to more current versions and you will also find important changes in their functionalities. For example, we now have the Linux 4.14 kernel and all the new features and drivers that this kernel brings to our Parrot Secuirty OS distribution in this new release of the 3.x branch that has been with us for a long time. Not only Metldown and Specter have been key points for the development, it also has many other security improvements ...

Another important change is that you will now have a menu with tools to car hacking, yeah how you hear it. In this menu there is a good collection of open source tools designed to test or compromise the safety of cars, as well as simulate CAN networks. If you encountered problems for Metasploit and PostgreSQL in live mode, now you should know that they have been patched to correct this, as well as the introduction of the new Mozilla Firefox 58.0 "Quantum" web browser. On the other hand, the stability of the distro installer has also been improved, along with interesting remodeling of the graphical system stack.

As I mentioned before, the rest of the tools have been updated to more current versions, in addition to having changes for the different editions of Parrot Studio and Parrot Home with productivity tools. Possibly we will not see a new version of this branch, what is certain is that there may be security updates for 3.11, but the development team is already focused on Parrot Security OS 4.0 ... If you want to get the ISO of the distro , you can access the official website of the project.
