We have OWASP ZAP by default here at Backbox, but if anyone want to install Burp (Yes, the same free version as in Kali Linux), installation process is really simple.
1. Go to download section https://portswigger.net/burp/communitydownload
and download latest version (for now it is v1.7.33)
2. sudo chmod +x burpsuite_community_linux_v1_7_33.sh (maybe the version differ in your case, anyway enter yours)
Installation process begin in GUI style, as in Windows for example, and of course You may click next, next, finish as you always did before
After that you have Burp installed, the basic version of course.
Why I open this topic? Well I've seen a lot of tutorials, if not all, just for Kali, and personally I don't like that, but people are lazy and Offsec team recognized that fact and because of that they included every possible tool in their distro. For that reason, many newcomers just install Kali and have all on plate. Several hundreds of tools with same or similar function, but who care, every tutorial is written for Kali and that's ok for them. People here, at Backbox, have much better idea, and their choice of tools is great, and by default you have everything you really need for serious pentesting job. Installing new tool is not difficult for experienced user but for new to Linux maybe a problem. Because of that, when something goes wrong, they go in Kali direction. That's the reason I started this and other topics with instructions for installing additional tools. Backbox is great and I will support this community as much as I could.
Many thanks, just what I was looking for, made the install quick and easy, thanks again.
