I’ve been having some trouble installing crackmapexec package on the Parrot OS.
In the PASSWORD ATTACKS module, section
Network Services, the crackmapexec package is used for brute forcing some passwords but the installation process, described there with following:
$ sudo apt-get -y install crackmapexec
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
crackmapexec : Depends: python3-lsassy but it is not installable
Depends: python3-neo4j but it is not installable
Depends: python3-pypsrp but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
After digging in as to why this wont work I decided to download it from official repo and build it myself.
Installing from Source (with Poetry) – unsuccessfully bcs of
aardwolfpackage which failed building. (tried to figure out why for a while but then gave up as well)
- Python Package – unsuccessfully as well. Cant remember exact issues.
- Lastly downloading the Binary from release – Still unsuccessfully with some more
aardwolferrors if I recall correctly.
I am in the
Attacking SAM section atm, and I’m supposed to use crackmapexec once more for the Remote LSA Dump, and, once more, I went through all the options for installation.
Is anyone having these issues as well? I have not found any Topics here on the forum discussing this, yet found active Topics on this particular module .
