Just a quick note to let everyone know that the latest, greatest version
of the OWASP Live CD just got uploaded to the project website (finally).
This is a release to add an important tool as well as make an existing
one easier to use. I also introduced sanity into the menu structure.
The full list of tools in on the website  Get your ISO here:
---- New Tool: w3af ---
From the website, "w3af is a Web Application Attack and Audit
Framework. The project goal is to create a framework to find and exploit
web application vulnerabilities that is easy to use and extend." Think
AppScan or WebInspect but at a much more attractive price ($0)
The Live CD install of w3af has:
* both the interactive console & w3af GUI installed
* a menu item to update the current install from SVN so you can keep the
Live CD up to date with latest version
* the latest SVN version (as of 2008-12-07)
* the steps to build the module are fully documented 
--- Web Goat Manager ---
An update to the previous Web Goat module is included in this release as
well. I created a "Web Goat Manager" GUI to start and stop Web Goat,
set the port number for Web Goat and launch Firefox at the local
instance. Access to Web Goat without any command-line funny business.
Let the learning begin.
--- Send your Feedback ---
Bug reports, feature or tool requests, complaints or general praise -

The improvements on the current release came from user feedback. Keep
BTW, its named the Portugal release in honor of the OWASP Summit 2008.
