Veil is Available in Kali Linux

The Veil development team is happy to announce that as of today, Veil has been added to Kali’s repositories!  Veil will always be available via github, but now we can also simply use apt to install Veil within Kali.

In order to install Veil with apt, simply run the following two commands:

apt-get update
apt-get install veil

You should see something similar to the following:Veilkaliinstall

After installing Veil, navigate to the setup directory (as shown above it is as /usr/share/veil/setup) and run the setup script like you normally would. The script just ensures that all Veil specific dependencies are installed and sets up up a few variables that Veil uses during normal use.

After this, simply typing veil will start Veil for your use within Kali!  We’re really happy and humbled to have Veil added into Kali, and hope to continue ensuring Veil not only helps us, but can help the security industry.

As usual, if you have any questions, bugs, requests, comments, etc. please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us on Twitter, Github, or via e-mail.

Thanks, and don’t get caught!

  1. Hey guys, I can’t seem to get it working on this kali … (Linux herx 3.14-kali1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.14.5-1kali1 (2014-06-07) x86_64 GNU/Linux) – also when installing from git (as apposed to apt-get I get the followign missing dependencies

    E: Unable to locate package mingw-w64
    E: Unable to locate package monodoc-browser
    E: Unable to locate package monodevelop
    E: Unable to locate package mono-mcs
    E: Unable to locate package python-pefile
    E: Unable to locate package python-pip

    Did it break ?

    Thanks chaps

    also .. still cant see the dolphin icon for ‘I’m a dolphin, totally not a virus’ FEATURE REQUEST

  2. Was wondering how I may rectify this problem:

    chown: cannot access `/home/paul/veil-output’: No such file or directory

  3. How do we get Veil now? this doesn’t work. I’ve use three different Kali versions and still no luck. Any help would be excellent. Thanks.

  4. Having the same issue. Also, when it finally installs, it won’t generate payloads. It keeps throwing the error of “METASPLOIT_PATH” is not specified, which from what I can tell in the config files, it’s specified.

  5. **SOLUTION**

    Just want to leave the solution here to the above, since this was the first place I looked that yielded not solution.

    To fix the “Unable to locate” problems you must fix the dependencies. Just running the three following commands in a new terminal window.

    file=/etc/apt/sources.list; [ -e $file ] && cp -n $file{,.bkup}

    grep -q ‘kali main non-free contrib’ $file 2>/dev/null || echo “deb kali main non-free contrib” >> $file

    grep -q ‘kali/updates main contrib non-free’ $file 2>/dev/null || echo “deb kali/updates main contrib non-free” >> $file
