    Default update-milw0rm script menu-item

    update-milw0rm script menu-item

    The menu item for update-milw0rm found in, Backtrack>Penetration>All
    Does not seem work with a regular user. It will not be able to remove old data from the appropriate directories. Will give a "permission denied" error.

    To fix open menu editor and then click on box "run as different user" insert root then save and exit. Upon execution the root password will be asked for.

    Just couldn't find that box! But if you mean "Run as a different user" and then choose root, this didn't work for me, because I haven't set the root password till now (I know it would be a good idea). So I changed the command field to the following:

    sh -c "sudo /pentest/exploits/update-milw0rm"

    EDIT: The same applies for a lot of menu entries, like fast-track

    Shame on you for not changing your default root password
    Yes the same will work as you posted and thanks also for pointing out the specifics.

    Well, haven't checked that (sorry no time now), but as far as I know, there should be no password (so even no default) for root. There should only be the first user with sudoer rights. At least I thought root will be created after "sudo passwd" in Ubuntu
