Tải kali linux 2.0

Today marks an important milestone for us with the first public release of our Kali Linux rolling distribution. Kali switched to a rolling release model back when we hit version 2.0 (codename “sana”), however the rolling release was only available via an upgrade from 2.0 to kali-rolling for a select brave group. After 5 months of testing our rolling distribution (and its supporting infrastructure), we’re confident in its reliability – giving our users the best of all worlds – the stability of Debian, together with the latest versions of the many outstanding penetration testing tools created and shared by the information security community.

To get a better understanding of the changes that this brings to Kali, a clearer picture of how rolling releases work is needed. Rather than Kali basing itself off standard Debian releases (such as Debian 7, 8, 9) and going through the cyclic phases of “new, mainstream, outdated”, the Kali rolling release feeds continuously from Debian testing, ensuring a constant flow of the latest package versions.

Continuously Updated Penetration Testing Tools

Our automated notification system of updated penetration testing tool releases has been working well over the past 5 months and has ensured that the kali-rolling repository always holds the latest stable releases of monitored tools. This usually leaves a gap of around 24-48 hours from notification of a new tool update, to its packaging, testing, and pushing into our repositories. We would also like to introduce our new Kali Linux Package Tracker which allows you to follow the evolution of Kali Linux both with email updates and a comprehensive web interface. The tracker can also help in identifying which versions of various tools and packages are in our repository at any given moment. As an example, the screenshot below shows the timeline of the nmap package in Kali and tracks its repository versions.

VMware Tools vs Open-VM-Tools

This release also marks a dramatic change around how VMware guest tools are installed. As of Sept 2015, VMware recommends using the distribution-specific open-vm-tools instead of the VMware Tools package for guest machines. We have made sure that our package installs and works correctly with the latest Kali rolling kernel and are happy to see that all the needed functionality  such as file copying, clipboard copy/paste and automatic screen resizing are working perfectly.

Short Bytes: Kali Linux 2.0 has been released with tons of new features and it’s now based on Debian Jessie. It comes with improved hardware and driver support along with support for more Desktop Environment. Download the Linux Kali 2.0 ISOs and Torrents now. 

At the recent Black Hat and DEF CON conferences, Kali Linux Dojo was presented. There, Dojo rooms were set up for the common public where people generated their own Kali Linux 2.0 ISOs for the first time. And today, in the most significant release of Kali since 2013, Kali Linux 2.0 is officially released.

Kali Linux 2.0 comes with new 4.0 kernel and is now based on Debian Jessie. It comes with improved hardware and wireless driver coverage. The official Linux Kali 2.0 ISO and Torrent files are released and you can download them from the website (links given ahead). The new Linux Kali version supports a variety of Desktop Environments including gnome, kde, xfce, mate, e17, lxde and i3wm.

Linux Kali 2.0 release has made it an up-to-date OS in a global and continuous release and thus it has transformed into a rolling distribution. It means that Kali is pulling continuous packages from Debian Testing and upgrading the Kali core system. This enables Kali Linux 2.0 and other future versions to take advantage of the newer Debian packages.

Along with the Kali Linux 2.0, you get an upstream version checking system that alerts you about the new upstream versions of tools. With this new system, core tool updates will take place more quickly.

As I mentioned above, Kali Linux 2.0 now natively supports gnome, kde, xfce, mate, e17, lxde and i3wm. The move to gnome 2 has come at a price of the minimum RAM requirement that has been increased to 768MB for a full gnome 3 session.

How Do I Upgrade Kali 1.x to Kali 2.0?

To upgrade Kali 1.x to Kali 2.0, you need to edit the source.list entries and run a dist-upgrade. If your Kali repos are incorrect or has overwritten Kali packages outside of apt, your upgrade could fail. In such case, you need to perform a clean install of Kali Linux 2.0. For the usual upgrade, run the upgrade as shown below:
