Description: "The time has come to refresh our security tool arsenal - BackTrack 5 R3 has been released. R3 focuses on bug fixes as well as the addition of over 60 new tools several of which were released in BlackHat and Defcon 2012. A whole new tool category was populated - 'Physical Exploitation', which now includes tools such as the Arduino IDE and libraries, as well as the Kautilya Teensy payload collection. Together with our usual KDE and GNOME, 32/64-bit ISO images, we have released a single VMware Image (GNOME, 32-bit)."
Keywords: Ubuntu-based Physical-Exploitation-tools

Pros: Compact; User friendly GUI
Cons: Prone to Errors, In my experience with it



GREAT for pen testing. A monkey with a keyboard could get a remote terminal on a restricted machine with this toolkit.
VERY diverse toolset, as well.
Mine has simply been prone to filesystem errors when moving from desktop to laptop and back.
