Backtrack 5: Wireless Penetration Testing Beginner's Guide - Revised Edition

I still remember writing the "Backtrack 5: Wireless Penetration Testing" book - was super scared everyone would hate it and I'd be flamed. Now, almost 3.5 years after publication it's sold over 13,000 copies worldwide. I couldn't be happier.

Anyway, the reason for this post is something different. It came to my notice today that the revised edition of the book for Kali Linux was out last week. Since I am still retained as the primary author, I just wanted to post a few clarifications:

  1. Packt approached me to revise the book for Kali Linux but I refused
  2. I did not review the book before release or receive a pre-release copy hence I do not know what additions/modifications have been made.
  3. As I am still retained as the primary author, I think most of the changes might be screenshots using Kali. Again this needs to be verified.
  4. Full credit for any new additions or making the previous examples better should go to the co-author Cameron Bunchanan. I had no contribution to these in anyway

That's all folks! Thanks for supporting SecurityTube, Pentester Academy and me over the years!
