BackTrack 5 R1 to be released on August 10th

The BackTrack Team has announced that Backtrack 5 R1 (Release One) is set to be released on the 10th of August 2011.

I’m sure many of our infosec friends out there are already excited to download its new release on the said date. The update includes 100 bug fixes, package updates, and the addition of over 30 new tools and scripts.

BackTrack 5 will surely rock your ninja skills because it’s the most favored penetration testing linux distro; and once again it’s back in action.

The crew will also have a pre-release event of BackTrack 5 R1 at the BlackHat / Defcon Conference a few days earlier. Cool isn't?

May the sauce be strong with you.” – BackTrack Crew

Way to go BackTrack Team!

I attached a spoofed video about Backtrack 4 but its thoughts are true.

So anyone out there who wants to master this tool and show off your skills on our next meet up?
Perhaps on ROOTCON 2012? Any volunteers? Email us at info[at]rootcon[dot]org. Thanks.
