Feb 16, 2010, 23:33 (0 Talkback[s])

"Dr. Ali Jahangiri, the well known security expert and author of Live Hacking: The Ultimate Guide to Hacking Techniques & Countermeasures for Ethical Hackers & IT Security Experts, is pleased to announce the launch of the Live Hacking CD, a new Linux distribution designed for ethical hacking. The Live Hacking CD contains the tools and utilities you need to test and hack your own network but using the tools and techniques that more malicious hackers would use.

"As a derivative of Ubuntu this 'Live CD' runs directly from the CD and doesn't need installing on your hard-drive. Once booted you can use the included tools to perform penetration tests and ethically hack on your own network to ensure that it is secure from outside intruders. As well as the standard Linux networking tools the Live Hacking CD has tools for DNS enumeration and reconnaissance as well as utilities for foot-printing, password cracking and network sniffing. It also has programs for spoofing and a set of wireless networking utilities.

"Dr. Jahangiri, the world renowned security expert and the brain-child behind the Live Hacking CD, has made it freely available to the public to encourage IT professionals and others to enhance their knowledge and to prepare for the malicious activities of the unscrupulous hacker."
