Hi. Recently, I've been going through these forums with virus problems and suchlike, and I realized I really don't know very much. So, my dad, who is a software consultant, told me he was looking at doing some backtrack 4 thingy, which I understand allows one to comprehend security matters in a much clearer perspective. I also understand, from searching these forums, that it is used for malicious means, which makes it dangerous, and is run for Linux, which I have almost no knowledge of. In short, I was wondering if I could gather the opinions of you fine folks here at bleepingcomputer on whether I should pursue backtrack 4 to become more knowledgeable or not and if I should, what precautions should I take.
