Best operating system used for Hacking :-
is not an art than can be mastered overnight, it requires dedication
and off-course time. Have you ever thing why Hacking is possible because
of “unaware developers and inappropriate programming techniques” . As a
Ethical hacker i personally realize that You can never stop hackers to
hack something, you can just make his task harder by putting some extra
security. if you are really interested in Hacking, You need to be know
Which Operating systems are used Hackers.
Today i am going to show you best operating system used for hacking by hackers.
1. Kali Linux :-
is an advanced penetration testing tool that should be a part of every
security professional’s toolbox. Penetration testing involves using a
variety of tools and techniques to test the limits of security policies
and procedures. What Kali has done is collect just about everything
you’ll need in a single CD. It includes more than 300 different tools,
all of which are open source and available on GitHub.
2. BackTrack 5r3 :-
evolution of BackTrack spans many years of development, penetration
tests, and unprecedented help from the security community. BackTrack
originally started with earlier versions of live Linux distributions
called Whoppix, IWHAX, and Auditor. When BackTrack was developed, it was
designed to be an all in one live cd used on security audits and was
specifically crafted to not leave any remnants of itself on the laptop.
It has since expanded to being the most widely adopted penetration
testing framework in existence and is used by the security community all
over the world.
3. BackBox Linux :-
is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu. It has been developed to
perform penetration tests and security assessments. Designed to be fast,
easy to use and provide a minimal yet complete desktop environment,
thanks to its own software repositories, always being updated to the
latest stable version of the most used and best known ethical hacking
4. Samurai Web Testing Framework :-
Samurai Web Testing Framework is a live linux environment that has been
pre-configured to function as a web pen-testing environment. The CD
contains the best of the open source and free tools that focus on
testing and attacking websites. In developing this environment, we have
based our tool selection on the tools we use in our security practice.
We have included the tools used in all four steps of a web pen-test.
5. NodeZero Linux :-
testing and security auditing requires specialist tools.The natural
path leads us to collecting them all in one handy place. However how
that collection is implemented can be critical to how you deploy
effective and robust testing.
All though NodeZero Linux can be used
as a “Live System” for occasional testing, its real strength comes from
the understanding that a tester requires a strong and efficient system.
This is achieved in our belief by working at a distribution that is a
permanent installation, that benefits from a strong selection of tools,
integrated with a stable linux environment.
6. Knoppix STD :-
is a Linux-based Security Tool. Actually, it is a collection of
hundreds if not thousands of open source security tools. It’s a Live
Linux Distro, which means it runs from a bootable CD in memory without
changing the native operating system of the host computer. Its sole
purpose in life is to put as many security tools at your disposal with
as slick an interface as it can.
7. CAINE :-
(Computer Aided INvestigative Environment) is an Italian GNU/Linux live
distribution created as a project of Digital Forensics
a complete forensic environment that is organized to integrate existing
software tools as software modules and to provide a friendly graphical
