The Ethical Hacker Network (EH-Net) proudly releases the only Official Version of BackTrack 2 that not only adds Metasploit 3 to the toolset but is also packaged as a VMware Virtual Appliance. Here are just a few of the features added by the projects lead developer, Mati Aharoni, specifically for the EH-Net Community:
- Metasploit updated to latest svn, all dependencies upgraded
- Added fabs patches for msfgui
- Aircrack-ng updated to 1.0 svn, all dependencies upgraded
- Tcpdump patched (security fix)
- Firefox updated to latest
- Firefox links, favorites and home page
- A few more lib fixes for old nasties in BT2 final
For those of you who are not familiar with BackTrack, here’s a brief description directly from the project’s web site, http://www.remote-exploit.org/:
BackTrack is the result of merging the two innovative penetration testing live linux distributions Auditor and Whax. Backtrack provides a thorough pentesting environment which is bootable via CD, USB or the network (PXE). The tools are arranged in an intuitive manner, and cover most of the attack vectors. Complex environments are simplified, such as automatic Kismet configuration, one click Snort setup, precompiled Metasploit lorcon modules, etc. BackTrack has been dubbed the #1 Security Live CD by Insecure.org, and #32 overall.

File size = 860 MB. Additional mirrors coming. Feel free to spread these files. PM me directly if you can provide a mirror, torrent server, or any other method of spreading the wealth.
NOTE: Please change the filename to “ehnet_bt2_vm.7z” before unpacking.
Compression Software = 7-zip
We chose to push a new compression program named 7-zip. We did this for two main reasons. First of all, the compression ratios were better than any other tool including rar. But the other reason should be clearly understood by the members of our community. 7-Zip is open source under the GNU LGPL license. For these 2 reasons, I feel this project could use our support.
