I see that Kali 2022.4 was just released and Hekatomb is not added in it, do I have to do something else ?
Thanks :)

Hello @Processus Thief,

We can't use pip packages.
It needs to be Debian standard.

Thanks @Arszilla :) It seems perfect for me, can you build it or do I have to build it myself ?

I've attached the binary built based on my packaging. It'd be nice if you can test it, as I had to downgrade pycryptodome to ^3.11 from ^3.15, as per my note in

You can easily build it yourself if you clone the repo, checkout all 3 branches (upstream, pristine-tar, and kali/master) - then build it as per the docs.
