I use BT4 on a daily basis.
I dont often connect it to the net for updates but when i do i like to get as much done as possible.
At the moment i run apt-get update and then upgrade. Then i update metasploit 2+3 and nessus.
What other things within the distro will need updating often?
Cheers for your help
Use apt-get update/upgrade and /pentest/exploits/fasttrack/fast-track.py -i
The fasttrack update system will update a range of your pentesting apps like metasploit, aircrack, etc. The -i switch invokes the interactive mode which has easy-to-understand menus.
I'm sure there are a few similar posts regarding this question in the BT forums, so have a good look first.
