DEFT Linux - Computer Forensics live CD

DEFT Linux - Computer Forensics live CD
Hello Everybody, First of all, Happy New Year. It has been a very tough year, full of surprises, some positive, some others not. One of these, the premature death of my father, forced us to stop temporarily the development of DEFT 8.1 causing a delay in its release date. In this regard, the board of directors of DEFT Linux Association recently met to plan a new road-map in view of DEFTCON 2014. DEFT 8.1 will be released no later than the first week of April 2014, thus to be able to present the latest news at DEFTCON; the same day DEFT Zero, a micro live CD for forensic acquisition only, will be released.
