Most of my friends asked me about which one is hackers favorite operating system and for doing hacking activities like hacking wireless network passwords, network sniffers,reverse engineering tools, application hacking tools and other encrypting and spoofing hacking tools. Today i will share which operating system is most of the hackers favorite operating system and of course I personally use it for hacking activities. My favorite operating system is Backtrack Linux and Windows XP not because they are easier to use but because i love their vast functionality and features. But you can also give a try to Matriux Operating System and knoppix , Matriux OS is just awesome but its still under construction as designers are still working on it and patching it.

Now lets discuss more about functionality of Backtrack operating system. I will not discuss more about windows XP because its so easy to understand that it needs no explanation.



Hackers Favorite Operating System : Backtrack Linux
BackTrack is a Linux-based penetration testing arsenal that aids security professionals in the ability to perform assessments in a purely native environment dedicated to hacking.

Regardless if you’re making BackTrack your primary operating system, booting from a Live DVD, or using your favourite thumb drive, BackTrack has been customized down to every package, kernel configuration, script and patch solely for the purpose of the penetration tester.
BackTrack is intended for all audiences from the most savvy security professionals to early newcomers to the information security field. BackTrack promotes a quick and easy way to find and update the largest database of security tool collection to-date.

Back Track is quite possibly the most comprehensive Linux distribution of security tools. Both hackers and crackers can appreciate the features of this distribution. For black-hat hackers, it provides an easy access to software that facilitates exploitations for secured systems and other reverse engineering. For white-hatters, it is a penetration tester that finds holes in a security scheme. See, everybody wins!
Major Features of BackTrack Linux
BackTrack features the latest in security penetration software. The current Linux kernel is patched so that special driver installation is unnecessary for attacks. For example, an Atheros-based wireless networking adapter will no enter monitor mode or inject packets without the MadWiFi driver patch. With BackTrack, you don’t need to worry about that. It’s just plug-and-play ready-to-go!

What’s great is that this Linux distribution comes Live-on-CD. So, no installation is needed. However, what you experience BackTrack, you will realize that it is a must to download this operating system and install it on your Laptop. At the very least, download the VMWare Virtual Appliance for Backtrack. Make sure you also install the VMWare Tools for Linux as well. Many features will still work in VMWare mode.

Based on: Debian, Ubuntu
Origin: Switzerland
Architecture: i386
Desktop: Fluxbox, KDE
Category: Forensics, Rescue, Live Medium
Cost: Free

Hacking Tools:
BackTrack provides users with easy access to a comprehensive and large collection of security-related tools ranging from port scanners to password crackers. Support for Live CD and Live USB functionality allows users to boot BackTrack directly from portable media without requiring installation, though permanent installation to hard disk is also an option.
BackTrack includes many well known security tools including:

Metasploit integration
RFMON Injection capable wireless drivers
Kismet
Nmap
Ettercap
Wireshark (formerly known as Ethereal)
BeEF (Browser Exploitation Framework)

A large collection of exploits as well as more common place software such as browsers. BackTrack arranges tools into 11 categories:

Information Gathering
Network Mapping
Vulnerability Identification
Web Application Analysis
Radio Network Analysis (802.11, Bluetooth, Rfid)
Penetration (Exploit & Social Engineering Toolkit)
Privilege Escalation
Maintaining Access
Digital Forensics
Reverse Engineering
Voice Over IP

And Much More…

Hopefully, it made you clear that why BackTrack Linux is hackers favorite operating system.

Great great post. I like backtrack quite a lot. I would recommend it any day to anyone interested inboxing some serious stuff. The tools in there are amazing. My laptop however has not enjoyed much of it due to the wireless cards limitations.

Well, i think I will give Linux a shot especially if windows 10 fails to impress me. I  have used Linux mint at a point in time and was impressed with how simple and powerful it is.  This post is a clear guidance on how I will select my next operating system

I have heard of Backtrack before but never gave attention to it until i saw this post and that made me more curious about what it can really help you do and how the ordinary person can benefit fom it. Then i found out that Backtrack operating system is a software that is designed to be an all in one security system.

I also learned that any free or open source tool that you would need to do a security audit with is available already installed in the system. It is based on the Linux kernel and there are many default security software packages for you to use. It is very useful for both black hat and white hackers.

From what i read, I can assure you that if you are person who prefers network hacking then there are plenty of software packages that are pre-installed for you to use. The same if you are a person who likes to take software apart and see how it works. No matter what your interest is in the security world, you will find software in Backtrack 5 for you to use.

This operating system has been a staple in the security world for several years now and people have grown to rely on it a lot. If you have a network that you must secure it is a good idea to make sure that you have a copy of this operating system on hand.

That way you will know that your security guys have all of the tools that they need to protect your network. It is a great software and one i will try soon so i recommend that you try it too..

I want to make this rectification. Why waste your time on backtrack 5 when the new backtrack 6 is called kali linux. The backtrack 5 is outmoded and with it you have to download most of the tools that are used in hacking before you are able to use it. Kali linux comes with all the tools. Hackers used to work with the Backtrack 5 alright but Kali linux is the new ish. I use it together with windows 8. I might be doing a tutorial on how to dual boot Kali Linux with windows. This software is really cool but you would need time to master the commands and codes it uses. If you are not that interested in programming and hacking i would advise against it. It's not the normal operating system like windows or ubuntu linux where you can play your games on. It makes hacking easy tho if you know how to use the tools that comes with it.
