Summary0000640: Armitage should use Java 1.7 (not Java 1.6)
DescriptionArmitage with Java 1.6 on Kali Linux has graphical glitches. Sometimes menus stick and other times, menus flicker or require a user to move their mouse around to make them draw. This occurs with the Java 1.6 package in Kali Linux.

An update to Java 1.7 fixes these issues for Armitage users.

If there is a way to make Armitage use Java 1.7 by default, that would be the best solution. For now, I'm advising my users to switch Kali's default Java to the Java 1.7 version:

32-bit Kali Linux:

update-java-alternatives --jre -s java-1.7.0-openjdk-i386

64-bit Kali Linx:

update-java-alternatives --jre -s java-1.7.0-openjdk-amd64

The next Armitage release will warn the user to switch to Java 1.7 if they're caught using 1.6 as well.

Here's a random screenshot with the sticky menus:

It's not even my screenshot :)
