Kali Sana Release Aftermath
Kali Linux 2.0 has been out for a couple of months and the response has been great, with well over a million unique downloads of Kali 2.0 as a testament. Release day was somewhat hectic for us, as we did not anticipate the sheer volume of traffic … which we somehow always underestimate. In the first few days after the release of 2.0, we had ten times the download volume of 1.0 in a similar period, back in 2013.
Kali Moto Repository Purge
We’ve given Kali Moto (1.0) a good two months of grace time and will be purging the unsupported 1.0 distribution files from our repositories in the next few days. If you’re still using Kali 1.0 then it’s definitely time to either upgrade or update:
cat << EOF > /etc/apt/sources.list deb http://http.kali.org/kali sana main contrib non-free deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security/ sana/updates main contrib non-free EOF apt-get update apt-get dist-upgrade # get a coffee, or 10. reboot
If for some reason you can’t upgrade, we’ve set aside an archive mirror of Kali 1.0, which can be set as follows:
cat << EOF > /etc/apt/sources.list deb http://old.kali.org/kali moto main contrib non-free EOF
Please note, this repository will not be maintained or updated.
Kali Linux Dojo 2015 Materials
It occurred to us that after the BlackHat and DEF CON conferences, we never made a public announcement regarding the availability of our Kali Linux Dojo 2015 slides and notes. The Dojo was great fun – we definitely enjoyed showing our brand spanking new Kali 2.0 to the the crowds, who built their own Kali 2.0 ISOs a day before release.
