Great news for hackers and Backtrack fans, version 2018.4 is finally out!
In the last 7 years, we've seen five impressive Backtrack releases Linux. But this time, to achieve higher goals, the team decided to leave backctrack to give birth to a new version called kali.

Kali took over from Backtrack, which was based on Slackware until version 3 and then Ubuntu since version 4.
Kali's goal Linux is to provide a distribution bringing together all the tools necessary for network security testing.

Among the novelties of the Kali distribution, we find:

  • Time Linux is based on Debian
  • All packages included in Kali are supported by any Debian
  • The kali repositories synchronize with the official Debian repositories, 4 times a day so that the distribution is always up to date.
  • You can easily create your own customizations of Kali to have an ISO that best suits your needs.
  • Time Linux now works on ARM architectures like Samsung Chromebooks.
  • Added Wireguard VPN, which is a powerful VPN solution that makes it easy to setting up a VPN.


You can download Kali Linux on their beautiful new site. Once again, to be able to log in, enter the login “root” and the password “toor”.

Happy Hacking 😉
