I recently downloaded backbox-4.0-amd64.iso and installed it into Oracles VMbox.
Then bought the book Penetration Testing with BackBox ebook.

But I am finding programs are missing from Backbox, that the book refer too.

So far its been Automater and OpenVAS.

Am I missing something or was this really only for BackBox Linux 3.13 ??
If so, it would have been nice if the publication had made mention of that fact before I purchased the book & I didnt spot any reference to an older version of Backbox on the webpage in the announcement page about the ebook.

Im still a little rusty in learning Linux Distros, so its a bit of a learning curve.
And having application missing from 4.0 makes me sad.

The Repo doesn't have the 3.14 version that i can I am not able to follow some of the book as its not available.

Any help in the right direction would be great.

I did a search for the Book, hoping to look for a help thread....didnt even think of looking for the missing applications them selves.
Cheers for the links.
