|Summary||0005474: bdfproxy - can't run|
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/bdfproxy", line 31, in <module>
from bdfactory import pebin
ImportError: No module named bdfactory
Fresh Kali 2019.2, using a normal (non root) user
The missing module bdfactory is now available in Python 3 only.
bdfproxy is only Python 2 and it's not maintained anymore by upstream.
Update bdfproxy for Python 3 is not simple, because Python 2 and Python 3
handle byte strings and Unicode differently.
Do we want to spend a lot of time fixing bdfproxy? This tool is broken
since december 2018 (when backdoor-factory started using Python3) and we didn't get
any bug report as far as I know.
