#1418 Kali Linux 2016.2 released as the most advanced penetration testing distribution
The Kali Linux (successor to BackTrack) developers are back from the DEF CON Vegas and Black Hat conferences for security professionals and ethical hackers, and as they promised earlier this year, they're now announcing the availability of Kali Linux 2016.2.
