Kali (formerly Backtrack) Linux & BeEF

Today's post is contributed by Ben Waugh (@bw_z).

BeEF is preinstalled on Kali linux distributions, allowing you to quickly use BeEF as part of your security testing toolkit.

 Running BeEF in Kali

Kali packages BeEF within the beef-xss service which can either be started from the command line, or the pre-populated menu item under Kali-Linux > Exploitation Tools > BeEF-XSS Framework. We don't recommend starting BeEF directly in Kali (using ruby beef) as this will not load BeEF with the required prerequisites.
You can start BeEF from the command line with; service beef-xss start

Stopping BeEF in Kali

Unfortunately, as the Kali GUI doesn't present the user with the ability to stop BeEF easily you have to stop the service manually by running: service beef-xss stop

Keeping Up to Date

To eliminate known issues and bugs, it's important to keep Kali and BeEF packages up to date. You can update both through the package manger by running apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

Known Issues

There are a small number of known issues running BeEF under the Kali distribution.

The most frequently encountered issue occurs when Kali loads the BeEF Admin GUI in your web browser when you start BeEF. We have found that the Firefox page often loads before BeEF has finished starting resulting in a 'server not found' error. You should be able to reload the page after a few moments to resolve the issue.


Also, we are currently aware of issues with some dependancies and ARM architectures. This has now been fixed, you can update to a working version by running apt-get update; apt-get upgrade 

Have any issues with Kali BeEF or suggestions? Please let us know on Twitter at @beefproject or on github!

  1. Thank you for the post as I have just discovered BeEF. I just wanted to clarify the following with Kali:

    service beef-xss start == good
    menu_path --> beef == good

    /usr/share/beef-xss# ./beef == not good?

    If this is true I have a couple of questions.

    1. How can I clear out the BeEF database? Usually done with beef -x
    2. How can I drop into a command shell vice GUI? (Actually when I enable the shell in the config file it breaks the gui)

    Any pointers are appreciated.

    1. Do you have solution for this problem. I'm still having it July 2015. Seems to be related to the version of ruby. Kali ships eith ruby-1.9.3. The current ruby is ruby-2.2.2.

    2. Actually not. I just use metaploit modules manually and forgot the integration.

    Most students and experienced civil engineers are today looking forward to migrating to Australia as the job scope is better and bigger with a high pay scale. Therefore, getting CDR help is the only scope to gain entry into the country.
    The CDR for Engineers Australia must be impressive and abide by the ANZSCO code and guidelines. It should also showcase the skills of the applicants as a suitable civil engineer to work according to the Australian rules and regulations.
    The service providers who assist the students with CDR have experienced CDR report writers. These writers know the requirements of a CDR and do it accordingly.

  24. An analogy could be that of symphony writing. The composers Haydn and Mozart, working in the 18th century, tended to write symphonies to fit reliably and closely within what was called ‘symphonic form’. This set out a pattern for the numbers of movements within the symphony here https://essaysprofessors.com/coursework-writing-service.html , and for the general structure of writing within each movement. The continued popularity of their work today shows that they clearly managed to achieve plenty of interest and variety within that basic structure.
