KALI – Bleeding Edge Repository


The power of Linux is in the repositories, and how stable they are.  If you are using Kali Linux, then you’ll know that Debian Linux is prized for its stability.  Therefore it should come as no surprise that the Kali team have separated out the stable from the “Bleeding edge” tools. Bleeding edge tools are likely to break, which is why they are separate.

Step 1 A: Code (Fully automatic updates).

echo deb kali-bleeding-edge main >> /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

Step 1 B: Code (Opt-In updates)

We’ve set up an opt-in “Kali bleeding edge” repository which contains daily builds for several useful and frequently updated tools. These repositories are still highly experimental (meaning we expect things to break from time to time until we get more feedback from the community).

echo deb kali-bleeding-edge contrib non-free main >> /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade


There are the tools considered bleeding edge – there are some such as SQLMAP that are amazing, but probably illegal in many countries.  Use SQLMAP against your own databases, and see what happens.  **Warning, sit down if you’ve got any medical conditions – once this baby works, she’s amazing*
