Unable to to install sslstrip in kali linux with “apt-get install sslstrip” causes error “Unable to locate package sslstrip”

Posted on

Problem :

I have a kali linux vm provided by my university. It doesn’t seem to have sslstrip preinstalled.

When I try to install it, I get this error

root@kali:~# sudo apt-get update && apt-get install sslstrip

E: Unable to locate package sslstrip

Solution :

Try this:

  1. sudo su
    (then enter your password as usual)
  2. git clone https://github.com/moxie0/sslstrip
    (once it is completely downloaded, access the directory)
  3. cd sslstrip
  4. python setup.py install
    (After that try checking the sslstrip if it already installed, by checking it on airgeddon)
  5. cd ../
    (go back to home)
  6. cd airgeddon
    (accessing airgeddon directory)
  7. bash ./airgeddon.sh
    (then the sslstrip should be installed)

Downloaded the setup files directly from the project page and installed. And it worked.


you can install it by typing this command :

pip install sslstrip

I hade also faced same problem. As the main setup link of sslstrip was missing. pip and apt-get were also not working. But after installing airgeddon, there came an option to install missing necessary files. From there sslstrip easily got installed. Have a try.
To install airgeddon:

  1. git clone https://github.com/v1s1t0r1sh3r3/airgeddon.git
  2. cd airgeddon
  3. bash airgeddon.sh

Then follow the instructions
