Kali Linux 2022.3 Released

Kali Linux has been one of the most widely-used penetration testing Linux distributions on the market. With a vast number of preinstalled tools available, security experts and pen testers can use the platform to uncover just about any vulnerability or weakness on your network.

The 2022.3 release, has a few new tricks up its sleeve, including a new VirtualBox image format, weekly images, and build scripts (so you can roll your own); new NetHunter updates; and five new tools, which are BruteShark (a network analysis tool), DefectDojo (an open source application vulnerability correlation and security orchestration tool), phpsploit (a post-exploitation framework), shellfire (a tool for exploiting LFI/RFI and command injection vulnerabilities), and SprayingToolkit (a tool for testing password spraying attacks).

Another addition to Kali Linux is their new Discord server (Kali Linux & Friends) (, where the community can chat in real time about Kali Linux. According to the Kali Linux blog, the Discord server is "a community server, all with common interests. We do not have the goal to get as many users as possible, instead, we are growing a place for each other to help one another. We are focusing on quality not quantity."
