OLPC Lowers Barrier to Entry For Hacking?


InformIT has a series on turning the OLPC into a "Hacker's Toolkit," which of course includes the Usual Suspects of tools (including Nikto) used by those evil hackers. The article is a bit cheesy in places, but I'm impressed the OLPC can run the toolset as described. Not bad for $188.

Also, ComputerWorld has an article about 5 free pen-testing tools (though I count 6): nmap, Nessus, Nikto, Metasplit, Wireshark and KisMAC.
