If anyone would like to help out with the graphics for the Live Linux Distro please contact OWASP at This would be a great project for University or even High School students to participate in the security community. The Distro was named "labrat" because it should contain all the tools necessary to perform labratory grade ethical hacking / auditing. And all of the other cool themes have been taken but other Distro's....
