WEAKERTHAN 3.6

Version 3.6 BETA

Reviews

WEAKERTH4N is one of the awesome pentesting distros I have ever tried. It’s still in its BETA release but the developer has done a good job for this project that some cool pentesting tools included in this distro. It is built from Debian Squeeze and uses Fluxbox as it Desktop environment. You can install this live pentesting distro using Custom Remastersys Installer. It has a lot of wireless tools unlike BackTrack 5.It has the old Android Hacking features.

WT3.6 FAQ’s

What’s the login passwd for root?

Same as always: weaknet This passwd is used for everything including services, so if you perform a hard disk installation, you may want to change them!

How do I get my BCM433224 Working with WT3.6

This driver should be working out of the box, if you are still having issues (missing in iwconfig command) try re-installing the firmware / modules by following this guide here.

Airmon-ng locks up when I use it!

The Intel Centrino N series adapters have a problem with VAP’s and iw. You can still use monitor mode and inject just fine, you simply have to use “iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor” beforehand. Check the video posted above!

How do I update Metasploit???

Directly from the Desktop menu! Right click anywhere on the Desktop menu and navigate to Pentest->Exploiting->Metasploit Framework->Update Framework – and make sure you have an internet connection!

How do change the screen resolution?

Follow this guide to changing your desktop resolution, if you are not using intel or NVIDIA graphics cards. You may need to install the specific driver for your machine!
