Parrot 4.5 is officially released, and there are some major changes under the hood, powered by the long-term supported Linux 4.19 kernel series, preparing the project for the upcoming Parrot 5.0 LTS release. For future releases, Parrot Security plans to a support two kernels, stable kernel and a testing kernel.Parrot 4.5 also comes with the latest Metasploit 5.0 penetration testing framework, which introduces major features like new evasion modules, a new search engine, a json-rpc daemon, integrated web services, and support for writting shellcode in C.This release improves the metapackages for developers, making it a lot easier to set up an advanced development environment for multiple frameworks and programming languages. These include parrot-devel, parrot-devel-tools, and parrot-devel-extra.Parrot 4.5 drops support for 32-bit computersOn the other side, Parrot 4.5 is the first release of the ethical hacking operating system to no longer ship with installation or live images for older, 32-bit only computers. With this, Parrot joins the growing trend of GNU/Linux distributions dropping 32-bit images. However, the developers noted the fact that they will continue to support the 32-bit architecture with updates through the official software repositories for existing users.Better Dev ToolsThere are updates in metapackages for developers, and setting up an advanced development environment for several programming languages and frameworks is now easier than ever:parrot-develIt is pre-installed in Parrot 4.5 and provides the following tools:vscodium – an advanced and extensible text editor.zeal – an offline documentation downloader and browser.git-cola – a graphic client to GIT.meld – a graphic patch inspector.tora – a graphic database frontend compatible with several database backends.These packages are included in the metapackage by using the “Recommends” apt directive, and they can be removed individually without triggering the removal of the whole parrot-devel metapackage.The metapackage also recommends the installation of parrot-devel-tools.sudo apt updatesudo apt install parrot-develparrot-devel-toolsIt is recommended by parrot-devel and pre-installed in Parrot Security. It provides some useful compilers and interpreters for the most used languages and provides the following packages:GCC/G++ – a compiler collection for C, C++ and other languages.python3 – the cpython interpreter for the python 3.6 and 3.7 language.ruby – the official ruby lang interpreter and basic toolkit (includes irb and ri as well).The package also recommends the following packages, that can be safely removed without triggering the removal of the entire parrot-devel-tools metapackage:default-jdk – the latest Java OpenJDK distribution for Java 11 (both JDK and JRE).cython3 – a compiler for the cython language, a strongly-typed dialect of python for efficient code.rust/cargo – the rust compiler and devel tools and its package management system.valac – the vala c compiler.mono-devel – the development tools for the MONO framework, an open source implementation of .net.mono-runtime – the runtime of the MONO framework compatible and interoperable with the latest .net runtime.php-cli – the PHP 7.3 language plus its command line interface and some useful core libraries.perl6 – the PERL 6 interpreter and core libraries.sudo apt updatesudo apt install parrot-devel-tools parrot-devel-extraThe parrot-devel-extra metapackage is a quick way to install many additional development utilities like advanced IDEs, additional languages, debuggers and extra tools.golang – go language compiler and runtimenodejs – node.js frameworknpm – node.js package manageratom – advanced and extensible editor by githubqtcreator – powerful C, C++ and Qt/QML IDE and debugger.kdevelop – advanced general purpose IDE by KDE.edb-debugger – graphical debugger.jad – Java decompiler.nasm – powerful general purpose x86 assembler.radare2 – advanced command line hexadecimal editor.cmake – cross-platform, open-source make system.valgrind – nstrumentation framework for building dynamic analysis tools.devscripts/build-essential – useful development utilities for debian developers/maintainers.sudo apt updatesudo apt install parrot-devel-extraDownload Parrot Security 4.5

SharpWeb is a .NET 2.0 CLR compliant project that can retrieve saved logins from Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. In the future, this project will be expanded upon to retrieve Cookies and History items from these browsers.UsageUsage: .\SharpWeb.exe arg0 [arg1 arg2 …]Arguments: all – Retrieve all Chrome, FireFox and IE/Edge credentials. full – The same as ‘all’ chrome – Fetch saved Chrome logins. firefox – Fetch saved FireFox logins. edge – Fetch saved Internet Explorer/Microsoft Edge logins.Example: Retrieve Edge and Firefox Credentials.\SharpWeb.exe edge firefoxExample: Retrieve All Saved Browser Credentials.\SharpWeb.exe allStanding on the Shoulders of GiantsThis project uses the work of @plainprogrammer and his work on a compliant .NET 2.0 CLR compliant SQLite parser, which can be found here. In addition, @gourk created a wonderful ASN parser and cryptography helpers for decrypting and parsing the FireFox login files. It uses a revised version of his work (found here) to parse these logins out. Without their work this project would not have come together nearly as quickly as it did.Download SharpWeb
