DEFT Linux 5 Is Available for Download
[Image: DEFT-Linux-5-Is-Available-for-Download-2.jpg]

Announced yesterday (November 9th) by Stefano Fratepietro, DEFT Linux 5 is now based on the Linux kernel 2.6.31 of the Xubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) operating system, and DEFT Extra 2.0 (Computer Forensic GUI). Starting with this version, DEFT uses the LXDE desktop environment and therefore it should no longer be considered as a Xubuntu customization. DEFT Linux 5 has been also split in two releases, one for disk forensics activities (see the download link at the end of the article) and one for cell/network forensics tasks, which will be published next week.

Besides the LXDE desktop environment, DEFT Linux 5 also uses a new file manager, Thunar, and the Guymager, DHash2, GNU ddrescue, Dcfldd, Linen forensics imager tools. For disk forensics tasks, DEFT Linux 5 includes the Sleuth Kit 3.01 and Vautopsy 2.21 applications.

"DEFT Linux 5 is available for free download (ISO file) and USB 2.0 pen marked DEFT Linux, available for only 15 € (special price for law enforcement, contact us for more information). [...] Special thanks to the people who worked with me: Massimiliano Dal Cero, Salvo Tarantino, Sandro Rossetti, Valerio Leomporra and Davide Gabrini. Thank you guys!" - Stefano Fratepietro said in the official release announcement.

· Linux kernel 2.6.31 (Xubuntu);
