Re: Unable to boot live session of BackBox 4.3

Sun, 08/30/2015 - 17:05
I have come up with something else to try. I do intend to install BackBox 4.3 to the HDD of one of my laptops. I already have the partitions prepared for it.

I also have one last blank DVD that I have been saving. I am not been sure what I have been s...

Well, that certainly took a long time to write, 29246.8 seconds at 69.1 kB/s to be precise. That is a little over 8 hours.

But it did not work as well as my previous attempts to write BackBox 4.3 to USB. For all those earlier times I got a screen with ...

I followed that link to the post about dd.

The difference between that and what I did before is just the last part of the command: oflag=direct

The first part of your command is identical to what I used before.

I will certainly try that a little later ...

To get fresh wifite:

wget https://raw.github.com/derv82/wifite/master/wifite.py
chmod +x wifite.py
./wifite.py

You can reinstall ...

First of all, you can't use dd to make bootable BackBox USB, anyway not like you think:

I have used dd many times. It has always worked except with BackBox.

I forgot to say that after I downloaded the ISO again, I used a different USB drive, and that USB failed to boot too.

Unable to boot live session of BackBox 4.3

Hi, I recently decided that I would like to try BackBox 4.3. So I downloaded the ISO by torrent and then used the dd command from Mint 17.1 to put the ISO onto a USB.

However, my attempt to boot from the USB failed. Three times I got a notice that said...

Re: Anonymous mode - global or browser-only?

Hi,

Yep, asked many times before. And answer is yes. Just run it and use your tools.

Anonymous mode - global or browser-only?

Wed, 08/26/2015 - 14:15
I suspect I'm not the first one asking this, but couldn't find the answer anywhere.

The question is - does BackBox's anonymous mode apply globally (i.e. to all tools such as nmap, w3af, wpscan,etc.) or it's only for internet surfing through the browse...

Hi,

Sorry for late update. Tools for me looks ok, and I will see with other devs how things goes for the future release.
