Russix is an open source distribution of Linux tailored for people who are looking for an easy-to-use and free operating system for wireless auditing. It is based on the Slax distro, which in turn is based on the Slackware Linux OS, and uses the KDE desktop environment.

Availability, boot options, supported architectures

The distribution is hosted by Softpedia and can be downloaded from our secure servers as a single Live CD ISO image or approximately 300MB, which means that it can be easily burned onto a CD disc or written on a USB flash drive of 512MB or higher capacity.

While it is primarily targeted at 32-bit machines, it will also run well on 64-bit hardware platforms. The minimal boot medium, which still uses the Slax logo, will allow you to immediately start the live environment by hitting the Enter key at the boot prompt.

Old school KDE desktop environment for script kiddies

The KDE desktop environment providing in Russix is from the third generation, providing nostalgic users with a traditional graphical session that comprises of a single taskbar located on the bottom edge of the screen from where they can access the main menu, launch apps and interact with running programs.

Among the wireless auditing applications included in this distribution, we can mention 

Bottom line

All in all, Russix is a small Linux distribution, designed for one thing only: wireless auditing. It will allow the user to break a WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) key in 6 key strokes, as well as to perform an "Evil Tiny Twin" attack.
