Caine is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu 10.04 for forensic scientists and security-conscious administrators. Poised to do battle against IT ne’er-do-wells, Caine has a comprehensive selection of software, a user-friendly GUI, and responsive support.

In 2007, IT systems were compromised with the Russian hacking framework MPack [1], infecting masses of servers, mostly at data centers in Italy.

The Live CD is designed to capture images and analyze compromised systems on site. The most recent version is 2.0 [2].
