WEAKERTHAN LINUX 7 BETA 2 Release

Huge UI improvements

Launcher

The launcher is a simple search and find application that should handle all found files appropriately. I coded it in a way that should either open files or open their location. Keep testing and let me know if you find any bugs or think of any way I can improve it!


To start the launcher, simply hit the Windows key on your keyboard (SuperKey LEFT, or RIGHT), or hit the new Launcher icon in the dock with the orange dots!

Installation / ISO Tools

The installation / ISO Utilities that I made were from the old code-base of Tony's Remastersys. I had to make a bunch of heavy changes due to the changes that were made in the newer kernel/Debian LINUX system, so after a while of editing his code, I just decided to code my own. The ISO creation process using XORRISO, and the installer simply sets up the system disks, copies the files with RSYNC, installs GRUB2 and then installs the latest Linux kernel from the repository.

USB Vs. VMWare

Again, if you look at the way I make the ISO, using my own custom tools, I make it as a "hybrid" ISO which should be bootable and work fine from a USB drive. Try using Disk Damager to put the ISO onto the USB drive. I do, however have the VMWare tools daemon and drivers installed into the ISO for anyone looking to use use it along side of their current OS. VMWare player is FREE to use from VMWare.

WEAKERTHAN LINUX 7 "Elite" BETA

Screenshot: Some new UI tweaks.

Thank you

Thank you to all who have tested the ALPHA release, the ALPHA ISO will be removed from the download directory and replaced with the shiny-new BETA ISO! Also thank everyone for their patience while I work through this. If only WeakNet Labs made money, I'd be able to hire people to help me and we would get more work done! Please keep in mind that this is a BETA release and is still under heavy development. This release was stalled for a number of reasons:
  • Assembly Programming with NASM (x86) book is still being revised and edited.
  • The new GitHUB repo has a full tutorial on how to create your OWN version of WT7!
  • New UI elements. I created a lot of new UI elements, including:
    • A custom, updateable-via-daemon Weather info app into Conky!
    • The FBRun app now allows you to specify if you want the app ran in the terminal!
    • Updated the VMWare Tools for the new ISO.
    • New ISOLINUX boot image and VesaMenu com32 file!
    • Updated the Dark WT7 Fluxbox theme.
    • Updated the OS and apps
    • Compiled my own version of VLC for all media playing in WT7
  • Oh, and I lost my work. So, I had to learn all about how to make a new file system from a SquashFS, then how to create a new ISO from scratch, which all works well but ultimately resulted in the new GitHUB repo for Debian customization scripts.
  • WARCARRIER's new home was updated and the GitHUB repo was also updated with my code updates. It's running smoothly in the WT7 BETA ISO.
  • Car trouble, camping, DOOM and Mirror's Edge, and other various reasons for delays happened as well.
Again, thank you all for using Weakerthan Linux 7 ALPHA and testing it for me! I hope the BETA exceeds your expectations!


Screenshot: Look at that new ISOLINUX splash and config! Whoo!

I am still in the process of updating tools and thank you for all the comments. I do suggest learning more about David Kennedy's Penetration Tester's Framework, which I do have installed in /pwnt/toolbox/ptf. It is also accessible from the FluxBox menu under Penetration Testing->Add More Tools.

I made the weather icons, dock image and icons, wallpapers, music, Fluxbox theme, WARCARRIER and other random InfoSec related applications, Weather app, and even the scripts to process the ISO and to even install the ISO myself. If you like the work, please consider a donation or drop me a line on LinkedIn!

WARCARRIER Updates

I have made some updates to the WARCARRIER application and an official page for it here at home - WARCARRIER at WeakNet Labs. So take some time and read about why it was made and what it does if you into #infosec and #wifi. I also made a new HQ video demonstration on the new page but you will need a browser capable of HTML5 to play it or download it.



This seems to be a project that I just can't keep my hands off of of the past few years. This particular application uses the Airodump-NG 802.11 protocol analyzer's CSV output, GPSD's gpspipe, and Dragorn's spectools_raw for the Ubertooth One to create a paneled dashboard for Wardriving. I have written my own 802.11 protocol analyzer script in Perl and I wrote a tutorial on how to do it in C Programming, but Airodump-NG seems to be the accessible 802.11 wheel that doesn't need to be re-invented. Though, the Libpcap library for C is a beautiful tool for dissecting packets, so someday soon I'm sure I'll revisit the idea.
