Popular penetration testing tool, Kali Linux has received a new version i.e 2022.4. So users can either download and install or update their system with the latest version.

Meanwhile, Microsoft Azure uses kali-cloud build scripts to automate publishing to the Microsoft Azure store.

The latest version of Kali Linux brings a QEMU image with a pre-generated image to ease the process for self-hosted Proxmox Virtual Environments (VE), virt-manager, or libvirt users. 

Additionally, the Kali team announced the support of the Pine64 PinePhone and PinePhone Pro allowing users to dual-boot operating systems alongside their primary operating system.

Kali Linux 2022.4 also brings Bluetooth support for a few of the devices. However, it will take time to rebuild them. Bluetooth, RTL-SDR, and Mousejack support were added.

Besides the latest version of Kali Linux also brings several new tools namely:

  • bloodhound.py – A Python-based ingestor for BloodHound
  • certipy – Tool for Active Directory Certificate Services enumeration and abuse
  • hak5-wifi-coconut – A user-space driver for USB Wi-Fi NICs and the Hak5 Wi-Fi Coconut
  • ldapdomaindump – Active Directory information dumper via LDAP
  • peass-ng – Privilege escalation tools for Windows and Linux/Unix* and MacOS.
  • rizin-cutter – Reverse engineering platform powered by rizin

A few other minor updates included are:

  • The Kali dragon logo is now in nerd-fonts (f327 aka nf-linux-kali_linux).
  • There is a bug in the installation using a speech synthesizer.
  • As a workaround, you can use Kali 2022.2, and upgrade.
  • The team will put out a message on social networks about when to grab the weekly images with the fix.
  • There is a bug with Metasploit-framework and libssl1.1/OpenSSL v3. As a result, there are issues with payloads using //reverse_https.
  • The team will address this as quickly as we can.
  • The team will put out a message on social networks about when to grab the weekly images with the fix.
  • RSS feed for torrents: kali.org/torrents.xml.
  • If your client supports it, you can use regex then to filter out which image you prefer.

echo "deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list 
sudo apt update && sudo apt -y full-upgrad
