Installing TOR browser

There are many ways of installing TOR but an easy step is to go to TOR website, download, extract the file and install it on Kali Linux. So, here we go.


2. Click on Download.
3. Navigate 32 bit or 64 bit for GNU/Linux, click on Download and then select Save file and press ok.
4. Once the file is downloaded, open terminal and type cd command to go to the directory where the file has been downloaded.
5. Decompress the file by running tar with xvzf parameters.
6. Once the file is decompressed, goto the tor folder.
7. Edit the file start-tor-browser in a text editor, like leafpad, by giving admin right
8. Run the browser, either by clicking on start-tor-browser or through terminal window by typing ./start-tor-browser.

Now let's see these by an example. Let's say, at the time of release, the filename of the tor browser is tor-browser-gnu-linux-i686-2.3.25-15-dev-en-US.tar.gz(for 32-bit, it may different depending on the architecture of your OS). This file has been downloaded in my Downloads directory. So, here are the steps that I performed.

(a) root@kali:~#cd Downloads
(b) root@kali:~/Downloads#tar -xvzf tor-browser-gnu-linux-i686-2.3.25-15-dev-en-US.tar.gz
(c) root@kali:~/Downloads#cd tor-browser_en-US
(d) root@kali:~/Downloads/cd tor-browser_en-US#leafpad start-tor-browser

Once the file is opened in leafpad, press ctrl + f and type root and then search. Now change the value from 0 to 1, as you are allowing tor browser file with administrative privilege.
Save the file and exit.
(e) root@kali:~/Downloads/cd tor-browser_en-US#./start-tor-browser to start tor browser.

Kali Linux 1.0.6 has been released

Kali Linux 1.0.6 released with a new 3.12 kernel, a LUKS nuke feature, new Kali ARM build scripts, and Kali AMAZON AMI and Google Compute image generation scripts, not to mention numerous tool additions and updates – this release is really heavily laden with goodness. This new release brings with it the introduction of the Offensive Security Trusted ARM image scripts – a set of slowly growing scripts that are able to build Kali Linux images for various ARM devices. These scripts will replace the growing number of actual ARM image releases we have in order to reduce the exponentially growing amount of traffic we serve on each release.
