Backtrack 4 How-to Updated for Nessus 4.2

in Announcement, Educational, Tools

My Backtrack 4 – USB/Persistent Changes/Nessus How-To has been updated again. Changes below

  1. Updated Nessus install procedures for version 4.2.0.
  2. Moved the 'apt-get upgrade' section to before the Truecrypt volume creation section. We now have enough updates that the initial update runs out of disk space before completing if the Truecrypt volume was created first.

The updated version is here.

The pdf has also been updated and can be found here.

I have, however, also kept the previous version available and it can be found here.

As usual, let me know if you find any issues or problems.

Hi, I followed your how-to yesterday till the encryption part. Good description, only had detail-problems with double –‘s and -‘s in in the mk.ext3 and grub-install command.
and: thankx for your Linked-in acceptation.

Thank you for letting me know about the double dashes issue. Wordpress does some annoying things sometimes with punctuation. I have now fixed it so that doubles show as doubles.

I am always happy to link up with people. Thanks for reading.
