NEW • Distribution Release: Scientific Linux 6.7

Pat Riehecky has announced the release of Scientific Linux 6.7, the latest update of the distribution’s legacy branch, built from source package for the recently-released Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.7: “Scientific Linux 6.7 i386/x86_64. Existing 6x systems should run ‘yum clean expire-cache’. Major differences from Scientific Linux 6.6: OpenAFS has been updated to the latest bug-fix release (1.6.14); epel-release-6-8 – this RPM has been updated to the latest upstream release; glusterfs-server – built from the TUV provided sources for the glusterfs client. Possible upgrade problems: sssd-common is no longer multilib compatible. If you are using sssd-common.i686 on x86_64 systems you will be unable to update. Please remove the i686 rpm on your x86_64 systems to resolve this issue.” See the brief release announcement as well as the more detailed release notes for further information and a full list of differences between RHEL and Scientific Linux.Download the installation DVD image from here: SL-6.7-x86_64-DVD.iso (4,142MB,SHA256, pkglist).

Siapa yang suka testing penetrasi? Silahkan upgrade ke Kali Linux 1.1.0

Mati Aharoni has announced the release of Kali Linux 1.1.0, a point release of the project’s Debian-based distribution with specialist software tools for penetration testing and forensic analysis: “After almost two years of public development (and another year behind the scenes), we are proud to announce our first point release of Kali Linux – version 1.1.0. This release brings with it a mix of unprecedented hardware support as well as rock-solid stability. For us, this is a real milestone as this release epitomizes the benefits of our move from BackTrack to Kali Linux over two years ago. As we look at a now mature Kali, we see a versatile, flexible Linux distribution, rich with useful security and penetration testing related features, running on all sorts of weird and wonderful ARM hardware. But enough talk, here are the goods: the new release runs a 3.18 kernel, patched for wireless injection attacks; our ISO build systems are now running off live-build 4.x….” Read the rest of the release announcement for upgrade instructions and to see a promotional video.
