Parrot Security OS 4.7 Released!

By Yasin | Linux | 20 Sep 2019



A security-oriented operating system Parrot Security OS 4.7 released today. Parrot Security OS is Debian testing based distro which is designed for infiltration testing, computer forensics, reverse engineering, attack, cloud penetration testing, privacy / anonymous, password, and other occasions. 

Lorenzo "Palinuro" Faletra :

 "We are proud to announce the release of Parrot 4.7, which represents an important step forward for our project. The pen-testing menu structure was re-factored and re-designed to make tools easier to access in a more logical hierarchical structure. New tools were also added to the project and we plan to add even more in the future. Not all of them are going to be pre-installed, but a good set of tools in our repository enables pen-testers to build up the perfect pen-test system for their specific needs, regardless the default package selection picked by our team. In Parrot 4.7 the sandbox is disabled by default and users can decide wether to start an application sandboxed or not. You can easily start the sandboxed variant of an installed program from the /sandbox/ folder or from a dedicated menu that we plan to improve in the future."
