Summary0002019: WPScan --update during install and proxy
DescriptionCurrently the wpscan package issues a wpscan --update after installing:
http://git.kali.org/gitweb/?p=packages/wpscan.git;a=blob;f=debian/wpscan.postinst;h=d2a77bfe9b9f55820f0ac215000080305beba5c4;hb=HEAD#l24

This can be a problem when sitting behind a proxy and only apt is configured to use a proxy via apt.conf. So if you did not set the env proxy, the update will fail.

We provide a data.zip in the root folder which can be extracted to the data folder to have some default data.

I was glad you moved away from the "svn update" and "git pull" during apt-gets when switching from backtrack to kali, but this package somehow breaks the system so it would be great to have it changed.
Steps To Reproduceapt-get install wpscan
apt-get update wpscan

FWIW in the above situation, wpscan - -update might fail but the postinst does not fail so the package installation does not fail either.

That said wpscan is not usable without its data so thanks for the tip of installing the bundled data in case of failure.

We have pushed wpscan 2.6-0kali2 implementing this extraction of data.zip. We extract the file at build time in /usr/share/wpscan/default_data/ and in the postinst we copy those files in /var/lib/wpscan/data if wpscan --update fails.
