Arch Linux-Based BlackArch Penetration Testing Distribution Gets 20 New Tools

The good news is that the BlackArch 2017-01-28 ISO images are bundled with 20 new tools for all of your ethical hacking and penetration testing needs. But it also looks like the GNU/Linux distro is now based on the recently released Linux 4.9.6 kernel and ships with the much-improved BlackArch Installer 0.3.2. All of the pre-installed BlackArch tools have also been updated in the BlackArch 2017-01-28 ISOs, which fix shadow permissions and the various Ruby scripts, including Metasploit Framework and WPScan black box WordPress vulnerability scanner. The locale.gen list was updated too.
