Right place for posting issues on SET would be @

BUT.. i got the solution to the bug for you anyway.. be sure that you got the "python-openssl" installed first, if it's NOT installed, INSTALL IT. If not, this will be a working solution for now at least..

Comment this line in /usr/share/setoolkit/src/webattack/harvester/

detect openssl module


from OpenSSL import SSL

from OpenSSL import SSL

handle import error that openssl is not there

#except Exception as err:

print("Python OpenSSL wasn't detected or PEM file not found, note that SSL compatibility will be affected.")

print_status("Printing error: " + str(err))
