Bauer-Puntu Linux 12.10 is Out!

This one was probably among the easiest version of Bauer-Puntu that I've made to date. I decided to once again build it off of Xubuntu like I did for Bauer-Puntu 12.04 because Xubuntu is way easier to customize than the regular Ubuntu.

Again, like last time I went with an Anonymous theme for political reasons so the art work this go around is very similar to 12.04 with the exception of the login screen (Sorry no screen shot). Also you will notice that the desktop environment is different too because this time I decided to not use Cairo Dock, and installed Cinnamon instead of using XFCE.

So what's on this version? Well I kept these packages from 12.04:

and I added these packages:
  • TOR Browser Bundle - Secure Anonymous Browsing
  • Fern Wifi Cracker - GUI Wireless cracker including WPS
  • Reaver - Terminal WPS cracker
  • Metasploit Framework 4.4 with Armitage - Happy Hacking!
  • Truecrypt - File Encryption
  • Truecrack - Truecrypt Volume Brute Force Tool
  • NMAP
  • Netcat
  • Ettercap-NG - For MiTM Fun
  • OpenVAS Server and Client - Network vulnerability scanner
  • IPList - Keep "The Man" from snooping on your torrent downloads
  • Ophcrack - rainbow Table Password Cracker
  • Samdump2 - Dump SAM hives to get password hashes
  • BKHive - Used with SAM
  • UFW Firewall
  • Gwibber - Social Networking Client
Besides all the cool new tools, one feature that has been unavailable until now is the ability to fully encrypt your hard drive at install time! Pure win! One thing to note though if you do use the full hard disk encryption, you need to press F2 when you first see the Plymouth Splash in order to see the LUKS password prompt. Think of it as security by obscurity instead of... You know... A bug.

Anyway, check out these screen shots!

Some people comment on my Tech Chop videos if I mention Bauer-Puntu and say how BackTrack is way better for hacking. They're right. If you want to be a serious Pentester, BackTrack is better equipped for that. However if you want a distro for everyday usability, plus be able to do some hacking occasionally  then Bauer-Puntu is probably better for you.

So you came here to download right? Well here are the links:

Bauer-Puntu 12.10 ISO - MD5 c3e74e2e149e9499c92b0a5274adc8dc
Bauer-Puntu 12.10 Torrent

The torrent download will probably be faster than the ISO, but if you do download the torrent please be kind and let it seed for at least 24 hours to help out your fellow Bauer-Puntu users.

Also, this distro takes a lot of time and work, so if you really do like it please donate using the links on the right.

If you have any questions or comments about Bauer-Puntu let me know in the comments!
