FireEye (Mandiant) Flare and Commando VMs

Started playing with the freely available VMs from FireEye. Seems like nice Windows based alternatives to Kali and Parrot OS for at least basic pentesting and forensics tools. Personally I like Kali for its sustainability in the market, frequent updates and tools arsenal. However Parrot has grown on me with its sleek design.

Anyways, it seems FireEye got a lot from acquiring Mandiant a while ago. The Redline toolkit is quite nice, so it will be interesting to see how these two plays out:

Commando VM is for penetration testing, see Github.

Flare VM is for malware analysis.
