Active Defense Harbinger Distribution

About ADHD

Active Defense Harbinger Distribution (ADHD) is our answer to security distributions such as Kali Linux or Parrot Security. We have curated a variety of open-source tools and installed them on top of Ubuntu 20.04 (previously Linux Mint). Tools are organized into three categories: Annoyance, Attribution, and Attack. Some tools that have fallen into disrepair have been forked by the ADHD team and fixed/upgraded to prevent them from being lost.


Primary Features

  • All of the best Active Defense tools in one distribution
  • Recently upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04
  • Track threat actors with tools like Cowrie, Spidertrap, Wordpot, and Rubberglue
  • Step-by-step instructions for every tool
  • Make security fun again!
