nUbuntu was just updated today to be based on Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft) that was released nearly a month ago. Many of you probably haven’t even heard of nUbuntu and don’t feel bad because I just learned about it a few weeks ago. It is another branch off of Ubuntu but it has several packages pre-installed that are geared towards security aware individuals. I guess that is the polite way to label the target audience because I would probably refer to them as hackers. :)

You can find the list of pre-installed packages here and among them you’ll find wireless cracking software, sniffers, and scanners. Everything that makes a hacker’s, I mean security aware, mind go around. So if you’re itching to crack your neighbor’s wireless WEP key this is the tool you should use for the job. ;)
