Lorenzo Faletra announces the release of Parrot Security OS 4.2.1, a security-oriented operating system designed for penetration testing, computer forensics, reverse engineering, attacks, cloud penetration testing, privacy/anonymity, passwords and more. The distribution is based on Debian, which features the MATE desktop environment and was developed by the Frozen box network.
Compared with the previous version, this new version introduces more improvements and security fixes:
Linux was updated to the 4.18.10 version, and linux 4.19 will be released soon.
Firefox 63 provides noticeable security and privacy features, but it is no longer available to 32bit systems, so we switched to firefox-esr on all the unsupported architectures.
We fixed a bug in the parrot menu configuration that prevented several menu categories to show up.
This fixed the missing wine menu bug, which is now back again.
The Parrot .bashrc file was updated, now it provides better snap support, the ll alias now shows the size in a human readable format and it does no longer overwrite some global settings as it used to do before.
OpenJDK 11 is now the default java provider.
Anonsurf received important stability upgrades and now it does not mess up the dns configuration.
New Parrot icons
The Parrot edition of the MAIA icon theme was updated.
We dropped many old unused icons and replaced them with newer ones.
How to upgrade
sudo apt update sudo apt purge tomoyo-tools sudo apt full-upgrade sudo apt autoremove
