Summary0004602: inetsim pem key file is owned by root user
DescriptionTested from kali uname -
    Linux **HOSTNAME**
        4.12.0-kali1-amd64 0000001 SMP
        Debian 4.12.6-1kali6 (2017-08-30) x86_64 GNU/Linux

The root user owns the inetsim pem file mentioned below-


this will cause an error and exit apt-get even if --force-yes -y --assume-yes or other variation is used to continue / accept defaults

    apt-get update, apt-get dist-upgrade

The apt-get fails when attempting to access the previously mentioned file used by inetsim and exists the process. This can vbe an issue when dealing with scripted actions. The fix for this error would be to `chmod` the file and reassign the owner to `inetsim` as shown below.

    chown inetsim /usr/share/inetsim/data/certs/default_key.pem

After the user is assigned the owner of the file, apt-get continues with no issues.
Steps To Reproduceapt-get update, apt-get upgrade, apt-get dist-upgrade
