Hello friends today I will tell you those Top 10 Operating System which Hackers Use for hacking. I have search about it on the search engines and found some results which I will today share in this post.
#1 Kali Linux
This is one of the most popular OS that being used by hackers for pentesting and lots of security exploits. This is a Linux based OS that provides you privacy and security from the vulnerabilities that other OS have in it. So must try out this cool OS in your PC.
Features Of Kali Linux
Full Customisation of Kali ISOs
The Kali Linux ISO of doom – a great example of the flexibility of live-build, and the types and complexity of customizations possible.
Kali Linux Live USB persistence with LUKS encryption
Kali Linux Full Disk Encryption
Kali Linux on a Raspberry Pi and a bunch of other interesting ARM devices
The other well-known Linux based Operating system is backtrack that is being used from few previous years and best known as the OS for network cracking and pentesting. And it’s also the one of the best OS that can perform various network hacks with privacy.
Features Of Backtrack
One-stop-shop for all of your security needs
Metasploit for integration
Wi-Fi drivers supporting monitor mode (rfmon mode) and packet injection
Cisco OCS Mass Scanner, a very reliable and fast scanner for Cisco routers to test default telnet and enabling password.
A large collection of exploits as well as more commonplace software such as browsers.
This is one of the best OS for hackers that is just in the form of Live CD. In this, you just have to create a bootable USB of this OS and then simply boot in your PC and no require to install just run on your PC and do hacking attacks.
Features Of Pentoo:
Available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions, the latter having a significant speed increase from 32bit
Includes the required environment to crack passwords using GPGPU with openCL and CUDA configured ‘out of the box'
Built on hardened Linux, including a hardened kernel and toolchain
Hardened kernel with extra patches
Uses a pentoo overlay, which allows tools to be built on top of a standard gentoo build
The another good operating system that every pentester would love to try out on their PC. This OS is being developed after the great necessity of many things that were not present in another Linux based OS.
#5 Parrot-sec forensic os
Parrot Security is an operating system based on Debian GNU/Linux mixed with Frozen box OS and Kali Linux in order to provide the best penetration and security testing experience for the attackers and security testers. It is an operating system for IT security and penetration testing developed by the Frozenbox Dev Team.
Features Of Parrot Security:
Custom hardened Linux 4.3 kernel, rolling release upgrade line
Custom Anti-Forensic tools
Custom interfaces for GPG
Custom interfaces for crypt setup
“Forensic” boot option to avoid boot automounts
Most famous Digital Forensic tools and frameworks out of the box
#6 Network Security Toolkit (NST)
The another best OS for security testing which comes in the form of Live CD and you can directly boot on your computer and you can easily run this OS on your PC and do various hacks on your PC.
Features Of NST:
Many tasks that can be performed within NST are available through a web interface called NST WUI
visualization of ntopng, ntop, Wireshark, traceroute, NetFlow and kismet data
#7 Arch Linux
Arch Linux is a Linux distribution for computers based on IA-32 and x86-64 architectures. It is composed predominantly of free and open-source software and supports community involvement.
Features Of Arch Linux:
Arch Linux uses its own Pacman package manager, which couples simple binary packages with an easy-to-use package build system.
The minimal Arch base package set resides in the streamlined [core] repository.
Arch Linux uses a “rolling release” system which allows one-time installation and perpetual software upgrades.
Arch strives to keep its packages as close to the original upstream software as possible.
BackBox is an Ubuntu-based Linux distribution penetration testing and security assessment oriented providing a network and information systems analysis toolkit. And this OS also provides you the privacy and vulnerable free environment.
Features Of Backbox:
BackBox has built one of the very first cloud platforms for penetration testing.
Designed to be fast, easy to use and provide a minimal yet complete desktop environment.
BackBox is fully automated and non-intrusive, with no agents required and no network configuration changes required to accomplish regularly scheduled, automated configuration backups.
With the BackBox dashboard overview, you save time and eliminate the need to track individual network devices
After the release of backtrack 5 this OS being developed and is now one of the best OS used for pentesting and network cracking and based on a Linux distribution. Must try out this OS.
Bugtraq is a distribution based on GNU/Linux aimed at digital forensics, penetration testing, Malware Laboratories, and GSM Forensics and is one of the best choices of attackers.
Features Of Bugtraq:
Bugtraq system offers the most comprehensive distribution, optimal, and stable with automated services manager in real time.
Kernel generic of 3.2 and 3.4 available in 32 Bits & 64 Bits has a huge range of penetration, forensic and laboratory tools.
The systems are available in 11 different languages
It has tools like mobile forensic tools, malware testing laboratories, tools of the Bugtraq-Community, audit tools for GSM, wireless, Bluetooth and RFID
So above are the Best OS For Hackers.
