The Veil team worked on adding a couple new features to over the weekend, and we’re happy to say that we were able to push them out into the tool. The two main features that have been added to the tool are:
- x64 compatibility – Veil originally was designed for x86 versions of linux (or Kali specifically). Over the weekend, we’ve updated our setup script to make Veil compatible with both x86 and x64 versions, so now you shouldn’t have issues running it on any version of linux!
- Update Feature – Originally, in order to update Veil, you had to be in the same directory as Veil itself, and then perform a “git pull”. We’ve now added an update function within Veil that will allow you to update Veil from either the command line or menu. It can be run from any directory, and will ensure that your version of Veil is up to date!
Note: The way that packages are installed in Kali, the update functionality built into Veil will not work. In this case, the Veil team will be consistently working with the great people on the Offensive Security team to ensure that Kali is regularly updated within its repos.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask, otherwise don’t get caught!
