Do not miss your chance
to hack in paradise with
Penetration Testing with
BackTrack in the
Caribbean held in St. Kitts
(http://en.wikipedia.org/
wiki/Saint_Kitts
November 28th to
December 2nd!
Penetration Testing with
BackTrack is our most
popular course, designed
for network
administrators and
security professionals
who need to get
acquainted with the
world of Offensive
Security. The intensive,
5-day course introduces
the latest hacking tools
and techniques, and
includes rich labs for
exercising the material
presented to the
students in a live
classroom setting.
Located just a short
flight from Florida, we
have been able to
negotiate an incredible
rate with a St. Kitts
based hotel to be able to
offer you this
unbelievable location for
what amounts to less
than many US-based
locations. There are still
some seats available, so
be sure check out our
sign up page (http://

Course
##############
##############
##############

We are excited to be
offering our Advanced
Windows Exploitation
class live in Columbia MD
October 24th to the 28th.
Students who attend
this course should have a
very keen understanding
of exploit development
and have a few under
their belt. This is NOT an
entry-level course and
just might be the most
hardcore class of its kind
on the market today.
The course covers topics
such as Egghunters, NX
bypassing Techniques,
Function Pointer
Overwrites, Heap
Spraying, Writing
Immunity Plugins,
Venetian Shellcode
Encoding and custom
shellcode creation. This
course is extremely
hands-on and includes a
lab environment that is
geared to challenge and
bring the most out of
you. The case studies
covered include
vulnerabilities discovered
by our research team, or
exploits written by us.
This is the first time we
have offered this course
outside of Black Hat,
where it fills up days
after registration
opening. Do not miss your
chance to attend this
sought after course and
sign up before it is full
(http://www.offensive-

windows-exploitation/.

Custom BackTrack ISO
Builder and Commercial
Support
##############
##############
##############
########
We have released a new
paid service that will
allow easy, online
generation of custom
built BackTrack images.
Users who require
custom builds will be able
to use a simple web
interface to configure
and customize various
aspects of BackTrack,
such as package
selection, graphics,
penetration testing
templates, drivers etc.
We are very excited
about this new service
as it will provide a unique
opportunity for various
organizations and
individuals to create
unique and highly
customized BackTrack
environments for the
first time. A percentage
of all profits from this
service will be directed
towards Johnny Longs
HFC (http://
www.hackersforcharity.
org/program.
Along with this, we have
also released a new
service that will allow
large organizations that
require official support to
deploy BackTrack in their
networks, to finally do
so. The BackTrack
Support Channel will allow
for direct communication
with our developers to
aid in easy enterprise
installation and
deployment processes.
The service will initially be
provided to enterprise
organizations only.
Check out these new
services at our new site,
https://www.backtrack-
linux.com/.
Never fear however, as
even with these new
commercial services
going on, rest assured
that we are fully
committed to a free,
open-source BackTrack,
forever. This will never
change. We hope that
through our commercial
services, we will be able
to better fund BackTrack
and (heaven forbid)
actually start paying our
developers for their time
and effort.
