Ill post some of my mods here. Ill post my most recent mod i did to my brand New Pioneer 111d internal DVD Burner more on that later.

Now here is an interesting list of tools that i compiled

Hacking CDs that get the job done right

1.0    Whoppix – Renamed to WHAX
Was a stand-alone penetration-testing live CD based on KNOPPIX but was renamed to WHAX

1.5 WHAX- Merged with Auditor to form BackTrack
WHAX started with version 3.0 from where Whoppix left off. But now has merged with Auditor Security Collection under the title BackTrack.

2.0    Auditor Security Collection – Merged with WHAX to form BackTrack
The Auditor security collection is a GPL-licensed live CD based on Knoppix.

2.5 BackTrack WHAX + Auditor Security Collection
It has evolved from the merge of the two wide spread distributions WHAX and Auditor Security Collection.

4. Knoppix-
Although I have next used Knoppix it is to my understanding that it was one of the earlier Live CDs to be released that contained Security tools. Although it’s still readily available I do however recommend BackTrack.

5. Ophcrack LiveCD
Ophcrack LiveCD is a bootable CD with a built-in Windows password cracker. Once the CD is booted, the Cracking automatically starts. It uses what is known as a rainbow tables that are pre made tables of passwords. It then takes the password from the HD and compares it hoping to find a match. This is a new variant of Hellman’s original trade-off, with better performance. It recovers 99.9% of alphanumeric passwords in seconds. I’ve tried this and it seems to work perfectly fine on my desktop PC. However, my laptop computer had issues booting the CD due to issues with the Linux distro.

6.0 UBCD4Win
UBCD4Win is probably one of my most favorite Windows Tools to date. I used to be a big fan of Winternals ERD Commander until I found out about this Free App. Is a bootable CD, which contains software that allows you to repair, restore, or diagnose almost any computer problem? A simply must have for any computer Guru or Tech Savvy Nerd.
