|Summary||0007006: powershell-empire versions 3.6.2 and 3.6.3 require sudo on Kali|
Good day. I raised this issue on gitlab about a month ago after raising it with the upstream BC-Security powershell-empire project, who said it was a Kali package maintainer decision. I received no response on gitlab so I'm raising it here in case this is the right place.
Since upgrading from 3.6.0-0 to 3.6.2-0, powershell-empire requires sudo. This is a less secure setup than previous. I would prefer to run as an unprivileged user when not using a privileged port, as was possible before. This change/decision is actually a security downgrade. It should be possible to run powershell-empire without sudo, and it shouldn't have to be enforced by not allowing the unprivileged user to do so.
|Steps To Reproduce|
apt upgrade from powershell-empire 3.6.0-0kali1 to 3.6.2-0kali1
Thanks for the report. I should have answered the Gitlab issue before.
We (Kali team) first packaged powershell-empire to use it with or without sudo. But there were issues with this packaging that can't be fixed easily if we run without sudo.
since powershell-empire version 4.*, only the server requires sudo.
