Review: Cyborg Hawk Linux 1.1

I downloaded a copy of Cyborg Hawk Linux 1.1 several weeks ago, and unfortunately didn’t get around to actually installing it, and using it until today.

My very first impressions were about how “beautiful” the desktop; but that is about where the beauty ends.

So, on to my use of it:

There are a bunch of tools on there, a bunch of tools that I’m not familiar with, and that aren’t in Kali Linux. I visit Cyborg Hawk Linux’s homepage, to read what documentation and tutorials they have on their website, and the pages they link to, are down (see here). There are several pages up in their “Documentation” section, so I peruse through there for a bit, not really finding the info I needed. I will come back later, to the tools I’m unfamiliar with, and put in the manual research time for those.

Launching tools that I’ve either used before, or actually have a pressing need to examine (I’ve got some malware samples, that I really want to take a look at), I try and launch Cuckoo, and it fails. I’m not extremely familiar with any of the other tools, but again, I will return to those, once I can read up on them, and learn how to use them.

Now headed off to tools, that I’m extremely familiar with, including metasploit. Launch the metasploit service, then attempt to update the modules, and it fails. Attempt to register the service, and it fails, and I’m therefore unable to update/use metasploit.

So far, in a couple hours of using, all this distro has going for it, is a pretty interface, and a lot of tools. As I mentioned earlier, I will dig into those tools, as soon as I have time to search, and lookup what each of them does. Overall, not very impressed with Cyborg Hawk Linux 1.1.
