Parrot Security OS is a complete all-in-one environment for pentesting, privacy, digital forensics, reverse engineering, and software development.
Parrot Security Operating System is a Linux distribution based on Debian with a focus on computer security. It is developing for penetration testing, vulnerability assessment and mitigation, computer forensics, and anonymous web browsing.
The previous version of Parrot Security 4.6 OS had released in April 2019.
Parrot OS 4.7 updated by Linux 5.2 kernel and new sandbox behavior
In Parrot 4.7 the sandbox is disabled by default, and users can decide whether to start an application sandboxed or not. You can easily start the sandboxed version of an installed program from the /sandbox/ folder or from a dedicated menu that we plan to improve in the future (meanwhile the search feature of the bottom menu will fit all your needs), or you can re-enable it by default by using the firecfg tool.
New menu structure and tools improvements
The pentesting menu structure was refactored and re-designed to make tools easier to access in a more logical hierarchical structure. New tools were also added to the project.
If you have installed Parrot Security OS, then upgrade as the following command.
