Summary0003347: "beef-xss won't start"
DescriptionAfter I updated, I ran beef-xss and I got an error, so then I went to its package file to debug it. I found the error, but I'm not sure how to fix it. I will put the exact error from the terminal into the additional information box.

we have to disable the dns extension in kali.
The new version of beef-xss disable it by default (it will be available in few hours on the mirrors).
