What is Backtrack? Pentesting and Security Auditing Linux Distribution The evolution of BackTrack spans many years of development, penetration tests, and unprecedented help from the security community. BackTrack originally started with earlier versions of live Linux distributions called Whoppix, IWHAX, and Auditor. When BackTrack was developed, it was designed to be an all in one live cd used on security audits and was specifically crafted to not leave any remnants of itself on the laptop. It has since expanded to being the most widely adopted penetration testing framework in existence and is used by the security community all over the world.

    @ilovemesomejess Glad you figured out the Adobe Flash problem. Yes I agree, it usually is the small things that cause headaches.

  2. ilovemesomejess says:

    @H4x0r18 @H4x0r18 don’t want it to just work. I want what i am using to work even if it means i have to spend a couple of days in terminal. I did figure out my flash problem. Figured it was one of my plugin’s. After finding instructions on how to install adobe flash for bt5 i skipped down to plugin part (what i thought was wrong), reinstalled both following their instructions, restarted and presto. Some times it is just the little things cause us the biggest headaches.

  3. H4x0r18 says:

    @ilovemesomejess I recommend using Linux Mint if you want everything to just work, including flash and codecs. You’ll have to manually install Adobe Flash on Backtrack and Ubuntu I believe, even though its still buggy it does work at times.

  4. ilovemesomejess says:

    Using BT5 now (dual boot with Ubuntu), its a solid version. I am having a bit of trouble with getting flash such as Youtube to play despite loading the current versions via apt-get install. Had the same problem with Ubuntu 10.04(currently have 11.04 no prob). Good luck to all that want to use it. Start out with Ubuntu if you have never used linux before, then when you get the hang of using thermal/Linux then switch over.

  5. H4x0r18 says:

    @tonnhard Its pretty much the same. BT5 is just an updated version of BT4. Why would I need another intro?

  6. tonnhard says:

    Thanks for the video , would you do this intro for bt5, thank you.

  7. H4x0r18 says:

    @0RespectMyAuthority0 You’ll be surprised how many people put numbers, letters, and symbols in their alias.

  8. 0RespectMyAuthority0 says:

    I thought only script kiddies call themselves by a name written in leet speak.

  9. H4x0r18 says:

    @dmillen1029 Yes sorry.

  10. dmillen1029 says:

    did you mean script kiddies

  11. H4x0r18 says:

    @crackerjwright Its not a program, its a Linux operating system based on Ubuntu. It has all the penetration testing tools needed for security professionals. I personally starting to like BackBox and Blackbuntu Linux, but I heard Backtrack 5 will be amazing improvement.

  12. crackerjwright says:

    hay bud i need help with this program can you facilitate

  13. H4x0r18 says:

    @cyberjackcyberjack I would cover more but just haven’t had the time since I got my full time job in November.

  14. cyberjackcyberjack says:

    It’s funny how 90% of people think that backtrack is ONLY for hacking Wi-Fi, well you would think so amount of videos on hear dedicated to it ! In the right hands Backtrack is a awesome power witch no system can withstand its mighty sward !
    For the record I have videos on hacking Wi-Fi but also I cover other hacking tools and techniques

  15. H4x0r18 says:

    @HeadShot360IN Oh ok thanks lol yeah I actually didn’t catch that. Hmm, guess I’ll have to work on my speech or practice a bit more before making another one.

  16. HeadShot360IN says:

    @H4x0r18 i’m not bashing you, wuz just wondering before why you said Kid Scriptties…it’s like if you ever hear someone say “360Xbox” instead of “Xbox360”.

  17. H4x0r18 says:

    @HeadShot360IN Yeah I’m sorry I do that a lot when making videos. I apologize.

  18. HeadShot360IN says:

    @H4x0r18 Check at 4:30 – 4:36 i know that you studdered, but you also clearyly said Kid Scriptties.

  19. H4x0r18 says:

    @HeadShot360IN When did I say that in this video? My bad. I did say “script kiddies” in my “An Introduction to Hacking”.

  20. radsportz39 says:

    @ThomasJ232 You can dual boot it. sure.

  21. HeadShot360IN says:

    They’re called “script kiddies”; not “Kid scriptties”… Now that just doesn’t make sense.

  22. H4x0r18 says:

    @0T13 Yeah its fine, just make sure to change the root password and add another user. If you have a 64 bit system, I recommend the PAE kernel or get BackBox 64 bit version.

  23. 0T13 says:

    is this ok to use all the time, so hack as well as having movie’s on if i installed VLC?

  24. H4x0r18 says:

    @jojozzzz98 Download KON BOOT and then burn the iso to a disk. Boot from the disk and then login without the password. Change the password.

  25. jojozzzz98 says:
