"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."
