A special edition of the Social-Engineer.org Podcast. We invited the BackTrack 4 Development team to join us for a personal sit down to discuss the creation, upkeep and work that goes into our favorite pentesting distro BackTrack. With a new kernel, a new website and a new support channel there was plenty of NEW things to discuss. Release Date 18 January 2010

Show Notes

We had many people send in their questions over our irc channel at #social-engineer (on irc.freenode.net) or email us.
Here are some of the questions we asked:

  • What is your favorite tool and why?
  • What do I have to do to become a mirror?
  • What took so long?
  • Will BackTrack ever release editions for forensics or SE only?
  • How did BackTrack come to life?
  • When will you start charging for BackTrack?
  • What do you do for your “real” job?

Plus much more. We are sure you will enjoy this exclusive and one of a kind interview.

Thanks to the guys at www.backtrack-linux.org for a great podcast. Check them out on the website or on the irc channel on irc.freenode.net at #backtrack-linux.
