Ubuntu, Backtrack, or Kubuntu with security tools?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 14, 2012
Hey everybody. I have been using Ubuntu for around a year now on a 4 year old HP laptop I set up to duel boot with vista. Recently I am finding I want to learn more about Terminal and some security stuff.
I am also seriously considering formatting the drive and going with Linux only. But I am hung up wondering what Distro I should go with.
I Have been using Ubuntu 10.10, so I have not used Unity. I hate to say it with out trying it, but I have not liked what I have seen of unity in videos so far.
Also like I said above I have interest in some security and the tools in BackTrack but it only a hobby really. So I honestly don't need everything included with it. I also know that even though BT is more stable now it is still default root user and somethings are still not optimized to be your surf internet/watch youtube type of machine.
So I am looking for some guidance, should I just bite the bullet and try Backtrack as a main OS and make it do what I want, with lots of trial a
Unable to install wifi security tools

I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop Edition. I have imported the kali security tools repository into my Ubuntu sources list from http://launchpad.net
By importing these repositories, I can install many security tools. But I'm unable to install wifi tools such as honeypot, airodump-ng, airplay-ng. It says that the package is broken
It is important for me to work with penetration testing tools. I have my wifi hardware properly working.
Can anyone say me solution for this.

[SOLVED] PPC Security Tools Distro
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 4, 2012
Hello all, I am sure this question has been asked before, but for the life of me I cannot find any topics relevant to my question.
I have been on this hunt for quite some time now. I will be using this distro to test the security of the severs I have set up and will set up in the future. Though the only spare box I have at my disposal is an older iBook G4 (1.07Ghz PPC, 1.25GB RAM)
I am looking for something comparable to Knoppix STD or BackTrack. Does not matter to me if it is on a Live CD or an install only. Just something that geared toward network security, so it is already loaded with all the tools and programs.
Thanks in advance!

I'm working on a security tool for Linux to scan for vulnerabilities in my network. instead of trying to fix problems, it will work as a warning system and send me an email if it detects apr attacks, dos attacks or duplicate mac addresses. id be glad to pack this into a deb and open source it after i finish but for now im stuck on detecting duplicate macs/mac spoofing. i was thinking of using nmap to scan for hosts and then make a script to compare the results but nmap always gives to many details which makes comparing things a pain in the backside to do. does anyone know how to get a cleaner output from nmap or another network scaner with a cleaner output.

Does anyone know of a good resource for security tools I can use for my system to block out any potential threats if one where to come, like an anti-virus tool, something so to say to block anything that could be tracking my usage on the internet, I know Firefox 4 can browse in a private mode, are there any browsers that allow me to be completely anonymous?
Hm, well for anti-virus, If I were to download a virus by mistake such as a trojan horse or rootkit that isn't easily detectable thats written for Windows, by chance is it possible for that file to somehow get into my system? Such as downloading it in a administrator account? By means of root, I'm usually always on one account on my PC and I'm not to sure between the difference of a account having admin. rights and that of a root account? And out of curiosity say I download a rootkit, keylogger, anything of high threat and I have Wine installed on my account (Which is only one account I created after a fresh install) could that viru
