Backtrack 5 R3 Released - PenTesting Distribution

Offensive Security has released updated version of its PenTesting distribution, BackTrack 5 R3.  The update version  focuses on bug-fixes as well as the addition of over 60 new tools-several of which were released in BlackHat and Defcon 2012.

A whole new tool category was populated – “Physical Exploitation”, which now includes tools such as the Arduino IDE and libraries, as well as the Kautilya Teensy payload collection.

"Together with our usual KDE and GNOME, 32/64 bit ISOs, we have released a single VMware Image (Gnome, 32 bit). For those requiring other VM flavors of BackTrack – building your own VMWare image is easy – instructions can be found in the BackTrack Wiki." Offensive Security Team said.

For the insanely impatient, you can download the BackTrack 5 R3 release via torrent right now. Direct ISO downloads will be available once all their HTTP mirrors have synched, which should take a couple more hours. Once this happens, they will update their BackTrack Download page with all links.
