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:
- Packt approached me to revise the book for Kali Linux but I refused
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
