Arch Linux-Based BlackArch Penetration Testing Distribution Gets 20 New Tools

A new set of installation mediums of the open-source, Arch Linux-based BlackArch penetration testing and ethical hacking GNU/Linux distribution arrived on January 28, 2017.

The good news is that the BlackArch 2017-01-28 ISO images are bundled with 20 new tools for all of your ethical hacking and penetration testing needs.
