Parrot Security 4.6 Ethical Hacking OS Officially Released, Here’s What’s New

After more than three months in development, the Parrot 4.6 operating system is now available with a Security edition featuring the KDE Plasma desktop environment alongside the existing MATE edition featuring the more lightweight MATE desktop environment. Both the KDE and MATE flavours are available in Home and Security editions. Highlights of the Parrot 4.6 release include support for https-to-http downgrades for the APT package manager, which is now configured to serve signed index files via the secure HTTPS protocol by default, OpenNIC support in Anonsurf to let users switch from the system DNS servers to the OpenNIC DNS resolvers, as well as better OpenVPN support.
