INSERT 1.3.6 is released now

Here we go! Finally a new version of INSERT emerges from the depths of the build machine.

About the INSERT

INSERT (the Inside Security Rescue Toolkit) aims to be a multi-functional, multi-purpose disaster recovery and network analysis system. It runs from a credit card-sized CD-ROM for convenient transport or download and is basically a stripped-down version of Knoppix. INSERT provides full read-write support for NTFS-partitions using captive-ntfs.

INSERT is a complete, bootable linux system. It comes with a graphical user interface running the fluxbox window manager while still being sufficiently small to fit on a credit card-sized CD-ROM.

INSERT contains a multitude of useful tools to be at your hand in a variety of situations:
1.  full read-write support for NTFS-partitions using captive and linux-ntfs
2.  support for various file system types:
5.  support for linux software RAID and LVM2
6.  support for WLAN adapters
7.  network analysis (e.g. nmap, tcpdump)
8.  disaster recovery (e.g. gparted, gpart, partimage, testdisk, recover)
9.  virus scanning (Clam Antivirus with GUI avscan)
10.computer forensics (e.g. chkrootkit, foremost, rootkit hunter)
11.surf the internet (e.g. the web browser dillo [enhanced version], the graphical FTP client gFTP)
