Kali Linux Revamps Itself with Undercover Theme Modeled On Windows

Offensive security releases a final version of Kali Linux for 2019 which comes as good news for ethical hackers and penetration testers.

Security is the word that defines the profession of ethical hacking.

The more you are under cover the better are the chances of your ethical intrusion to be hidden from real hackers and rest of the world.

So if you are in the business of cyber security here is good news you cannot have enough of.

Offensive Security has released a new and the final version of Kali Linux for 2019 that accommodates a special theme to transform your Xfce desktop environment into a Windows look-a-like desktop.

Christened as 'Kali Undercover', the theme has been customized for those who operate in public places without wanting to let people around to know that one is working on Kali Linux, an operating system popular among ethical hackers, penetration testers, and cyber security researchers.

Here under the new system just enabling "Kali Undercover Mode" from the menu would immediately turn your distinctive Kali dragon theme to the usual bluish version of the Windows operating system.

The latest Kali Linux 2019.4 release, powered by Linux kernel 5.3.9, also includes a few more sophisticated updates apart from Kali Undercover.

  • Xfce Desktop - A new default, lightweight desktop environment aimed at improving the performance and user experience.
  • Power Shell Support - for executing Power Shell scripts directly on Kali.
  • Kali Net Hunter KeX - For attaching your Android device to an HDMI output along with Bluetooth keyboard and mouse and get a full Kali desktop on your Smartphone.
  • New GTK3 theme - A new desktop theme for both Xfce and GNOME desktops.
  • Kali Documentation - Moved Kali docs to "/docs/", which is now Git powered where anyone can contribute for better public documentation.
  • BTRFS during setup - Supports setting BTRFS as your root file system allowing you to perform file system rollbacks after upgrades.

The Offensive Security ARM images have also been updated to the latest 2019.4 version that will support 8GB SD cards on ARM.

However, the team has ensured that starting with the 2020. 1 version, which is due in the New Year, a 16GB SD card will be the minimum supported one, though users will be able to create their own images that support smaller cards.

Moreover, RaspberryPi kernel for Kali Linux was updated to version 4.19.81, and the firmware package was updated to include the eprom updates for the RaspberryPi 4.

In a world of changing technologies ISOEH updates its students with the latest global ethical hacking software.
