Hi there,
there is no any password by default on BackBox....
You must have done something unusual/wrong during the installation and pls also check md5 of iso file that you've downloaded, it must match as how explained on our web site wiki page.

Furthermore, in order to figure out (after checking the steps above) your problem, you need to give us more details about how you installed on which device (virtual and/or pyshical) and so on...the procedure and platform, to be clear.....

Pls follow this discussion on forum that you have opened and we will get you have a support very shortly.

Cheers

I think having beginner documentation is a great idea, but could you be a bit more specific? Do you need help with, say, the XFCE desktop? The tools that come with BackBox? The command line?

I'll be happy to help if I can.

Best way to get involved with backbox is learning Ubuntu, i think.
for very basic linux learning, read some book (ebook). suck "running linux" (this one is old but very useful yet).
Learn about services, FSH, Kernel and....

Sorry to be the smart ass here, but you should - as a beginner - definitely learn something about Xubuntu. Using XFCE is completely different from Unity. And as a beginner you wouldn't use the terminal too often (also you maybe should).
Actually i don't think that Backbox is, and should never be, for beginners. Especially the whole penetration test/forensics tree is made with less "user friendliness" but usability/stability/speed in mind. And for the usage you will have to learn basics from - at least - windows and linux/unix.

Nonetheless a documentation about the included tools would help - there is already some in the wiki.

Linux distro is not just a desktop manager/window manager dude. If i want to  say learn xubuntu I can.
No learn Ubuntu because it's root of these type of distro and if you want be a pro, learn Debian.
