Two developers from Texas, USA have released their first open-source project. The project is called PHLAK, short for Professional Hacker's Linux Assault Kit. Phlak is a LiveCD Linux distribution with a focus on pen-testing, forensics, and network analysis. It includes two lightweight GUIs (XFCE4 and Fluxbox) and loads of tools, including crackers, sniffers, MITM utilities, and data recovery and duplication utilities. It includes a seven-step GUI to install to your hard drive if you desire. PHLAK will hopefully become a "tool-of-the-trade" amongst security professionals across the world.

The current version of PHLAK is 0.1. If anyone would like to grab a copy or check out the site you can access it at http://www.phlak.org. The PHLAK project team welcomes you, and your feedback.
