Backtrack Linux for Hacking

([msg=37165]see Backtrack Linux for Hacking[/msg])

I got a few questions:

1.) If someone hacked a website/computer from the LIVE CD, then once they were done they removed the CD and shut down, could someone find your tracks?

2.) Will the BT4-final.iso file work on a USB drive (Flash Drive)

-Thanks

You need to be more specific about what you mean by 'your tracks'.

I mean if I were to hack a website/computer off of the BackTrack 4 LIVE CD, can they find out it was me? It's a little hard to explain. Like can they track me down even though it was off of a LIVE CD which does not save anything?

Just because you don't save anything doesn't mean they won't. They'll still record your IP address and a few other details (assuming it's a website).

It also depends what kind of hacking you're doing. If you're attacking a webpage, there's going to be different tracks to cover than attacking a network or another computer. Thus, I need more information before I can tell you what exactly they can log.

Use BT4 to change your MAC address as well as to spoof your ip address.

Backtrack is the OS of gods for pentest. It very useful for many things, but use it wisely. I smell some not very wise thoughts here... but maybe I am wrong.
