Ubuntu-Based BackBox Linux 4.7 Is Out with Kernel 4.4 LTS, Updated Hacking Tools

BackBox Linux 4.7 is here a little over six months since the end-of-May release of BackBox Linux 4.6, and it upgrades the kernel packages to the long-term supported Linux 4.4 series, as well as various of the pre-installed hacking tools, including but not limited to Metasploit, OpenVAS, BeEF, sqlmap, Social-Engineer Toolkit, and WPScan. As you can see, BlackBox Linux 4.7 is a minor maintenance update to keep the operating system stable and reliable until the next major release, BlackBox Linux 5, hits the streets.
