R1 Release Offsec Blog

BlackHat, BackTrack and EDB Updates

The Offsec crew is back from BlackHat and Defcon, alive and well. The PWB and AWE trainings were a blast and the crowd was awesome. The BackTrack R1 BlackHat edition release went well, with over 5500 DVDs distributed. We thank everyone who came to our booth – it was nice to put a face to some of those names…

The BackTrack R1 Public Release has gone well, with over 16,000 downloads in the fist 24 hours.

The Exploit-Database has also been getting interesting article submissions such as Exploiting Internet Explorer 7 With Dot Net and the followup Exploiting Internet Explorer 7 With Dot Net - Case Study. Get ready from some big news on that front, real soon…

The Social-Engineer.org contest at Defcon was great fun too, with lots of contestants, lots of noise and some very surprising results !

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the BackTrack Crew, the Exploit-DB team, The BlackHat guys and the Offsec team for all the hard work and effort put into making these events so great. Thank you all!
