Missing in Action: Armitage on Kali Linux

As you may know, the highly anticipated Kali Linux is now available. If you’ve fired it up, you may notice it’s missing a familiar tool. Armitage is not present. The Kali Linux team added an Armitage package to its repository today. To get it:

apt-get install armitage

Before you start Armitage, make sure the postgresql database is running:

service postgresql start

If you get a missing database.yml error, type:

service metasploit start

Update 22 May 13 – The Getting Started with Armitage and the Metasploit Framework (2013 Edition) is now up to date with instructions for Kali Linux. I recommend giving it a read.
