|0000053||Kali Linux||[All Projects] Tool Upgrade Request||public||2013-03-13 14:49||2013-10-31 16:01|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||1.0.6|
|Summary||0000053: WPScan to use Git repo || v2.1|
It seems that WPScan was updated from version 1.0 in BackTrack to 2.0 in Kali.
We released version 2.1 a couple of weeks ago - https://github.com/wpscanteam/wpscan/tags
Our preference would be to install WPScan in Kali using Git as this would allow the user to issue the "update" command in WPScan (./wpscan.rb --update) to update to the latest release. We commit new code almost on a daily basis which includes the databases which we sometimes push plugin/theme/core 0days to.
We have numerous checks in place, such as automated testing on commits to ensure that all commits pass the unit tests (which are very comprehensive) to minimise the chances of 'breaking' the code. If we do commit code that breaks WPScan an email is sent to all developers and a fix is normally in place within a few minutes.
If installing WPScan in Kali from our Git repo is not possible, then please could v2.1 be pushed to Kali and we'll see if there's anything we can do on our side to ensure users have the latest WPScan databases and code.
Thanks a bunch,

We aren't worried about your updates breaking your code :)
The issue with allowing tool updates is that the package manager will know nothing about files changed post-install so when it comes time to remove the package, excess cruft will be left behind in the filesystem.
We'll get 2.1 packaged and pushed out soon.
It seems WPScan was updated to 2.0 but not 2.1 causing issues with dependencies.
Can WPScan be updated to latest version 2.1 please and also can we be added to the bleeding-edge repository?
2.1 - https://github.com/wpscanteam/wpscan/tags
Version 2.1 added in wpscan_2.1+git20130625-1kali0.
We'll see if we can get it added into bleeding-edge as well.
