Hacking9 Live – a Linux distribution based on Aurox, which provides a live environment with articles for reading of hakin9.org
Hakin9 is an English-language computer’s magazine, weekly published by Hakin9 Media Sp o.o. Sp. Komandytowa. Its main topic is computer security.
From the developer:
The problem with some books and magazines is that it is not so easy to practice what you read. When you try to do everything as explained in the book you face a lot of small problems. Some scripts do not work, sometimes you have a different version of tools or compilers, sometimes author did not described something, because he considered it obvious.
This is why we decided to publish tutorials on our cover CD. They are (usually) an addition to articles. As we create and test them on the very same platform they will be performed (hakin9.live) we are sure you will be able to exercise new techniques without problems.
There are tutorials which can be treated as a standalone material, there are also ones which should be read and excercised together with an appropriate article. Our articles are published (in HTML) on our hakin9 site.
