Kali Linux is a Debian-based Linux distribution aimed at advanced Penetration Testing and Security Auditing. 

It contains several hundred tools aimed at various information security tasks such as Penetration Testing, Forensics and Reverse Engineering.

Built on Debian and maintained by Offensive Security Ltd.

  • Contains a massive array of software - With around 300 tools for testing the security of a network, Kali's main focus is on pen testing, which means it's great for poking around for security holds in your own network.
  • Boot straight from the USB or DVD so you can test it before installing.
  • Note: the latest version only available as 64bit OS. if you want the older 32bit version please add a note to your order.
  • We will send you the latest version available according to your choice.


  • The default password for Kali when in Live Mode is toor.

  • Some computers get the error "A stop job is running for..." followed by various messages when trying to shot down Kali.

             To avoid this error simply log out of the user session and then shut Kali down from the password screen. 

             See how to do it in this video:

  • If you choose to install Kali you might get an error saying “CDROM couldn't be mounted” To go around it unplug the USB, wait 3 seconds and connect it again. wait for mount / detection and hit Continue:

First solution: 

1. when the Window shows CDROM couldn't be mounted: unplug your USB from system, wait 10 seconds and re insert it

2. Wait for mount/ detection (USB LED glow).

3. Click 'Yes' to retry mounting the USB / CDROM

4. Hit Continue

Second solution:

1. Run the installer.

2. Open a shell (ALT + F2).

3. Create the directory cdrom directly on the root of the file system:  mkdir /cdrom  mkdir /cdrom

* Note : If you got problems making the directory /cdrom, disable the CD-rom player in BIOS or disconnect the cable

4. Mount the USB as if it is a CD-ROM: mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /cdrom  (Where sdb1 is your USB device).

You could carry on installation now

* After executing mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /cdrom, cd into the /cdrom directory and do an ls to see if the files are there. Then press ALT-F1 to go back, continue and re-select "detect CDROM" 

Third solution:

We need to create the USB using DD mode instead of ISO.

This is our last priority because it will make the USB unusable, however If you were not successful with the first two solutions please contact us via this page, or by email: info@linuxartists.com  and we will send you a DD mode USB.
