|(6 %)||WeakNet Linux Version 2.0 Final released|
WeakNet Linux "Assistant" is a Live Linux Distribution built from Ubuntu 8.04. It started as a side project by Douglas Berdeaux (trevelyn). The plan was to have a live disk to boot the machines with in the WeakNet Laboratories that already had all of the most common security tools, completely customized to suit the laboratory image, pre-installed. This was necessary as the WeakNet Laboratory was founded in a residential house that would suffer from power failures. Sometimes the systems simply needed rebooted after being compromised during a computer security penetration test.
