The wireless security team has just announced the immediate availability of a new version of Wifislax, specifically version 4.12, which is now available for download and installation.
This version of this operating system based on slackware 14.2 comes with important news, such as updating to the latest stable LTS kernel (4.4.16).
All packages in this distribution have also been updated, such as for example the Firefox browser, Slackware applications and other very important programs such as Wireshark, tornado or filezilla among others. Some programs such as Google Chrome have been eliminated, since Google withdrew support for 32-bit in Linux.
It has also been announced that this will be the latest version of Wifislax that works in 32 bits, since a development in 64 bits is going to begin to be able to run the PC more easily in UEFI BIOS and to be able to take better advantage of the resources of the machines.
In case you didn't know him, Wifislax is a Spanish distribution dedicated mainly to the security of wireless networks. This operating system carries a lot of applications such as aircrack or reaver designed to check the security of your Wi-Fi network.
It also comes with other tools, such as dictionary generators, tools to attack routers or even programs to make man-in-the-middle attacks.
Wifislax contains two different desktops, first we have the main desk, what is the KDE desktop and second we have the Xfce, the secondary desktop destined to work in computers with low requirements.
Wifislax works both in live CD and installed mode, being an operating system easier to use than other similar ones like kali linux. This has made it a widely used operating system, both by security experts and by other types of people who use it for fraudulent purposes.
