0003725Kali Linux[All Projects] Kali Package Bugpublic2016-11-18 08:15
Assigned Tosbrun 
Product Version2016.2 
Target VersionFixed in Version2017.1 
Summary0003725: Metasploit launcher icon starts database and msfconsole in parallel rather than sequentially
DescriptionThe Metasploit .desktop launcher has a typo where it accidentally starts msfdb in parallel with msfconsole, leading to a parallel database migration that randomly throws errors depending on the timing of the two commands
Steps To ReproduceFrom a a clean install, or after having run 'msfdb delete', click the default Metasploit desktop launcher icon. The database should start being created, then framework will start and a random set of backtraces will appear.
Additional InformationThis is a bug in the kali-msfconsole.desktop launcher.

It has:

Exec=sh -c "service postgresql start && msfdb init & msfconsole;${SHELL:-bash}"

This should be written instead as:

Exec=sh -c "service postgresql start && msfdb init && msfconsole;${SHELL:-bash}"
