Kali Linux for WSL now available on Windows Store

by on Mar.06, 2018, under Posts

This is pretty neat:


However, I have a couple concerns. First, how useful will it be? Currently on a Windows 10 system, I have WSL setup and nmap is essentially useless:

tester@Win10virtual:~$ sudo nmap -sP -n -T4

Starting Nmap 7.01 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2018-03-06 14:10 STD
dnet: Failed to open device eth0

There is discussion about this issue here:


There is discussion of other network tools having socket related issues.

Second, how will AV handle tools like metasploit, powersploit, social engineering toolkit and the like that may set off AV engines?

I honestly think WSL is awesome but at this point I would recommend running whatever Linux distro of your desire on VirtualBox or the like.

A solution for Windows 10 Pro activation issues

by on Sep.09, 2017, under Posts

If you have recently swapped a motherboard in a Windows 10 system that is a MBR based system (this may work for UEFI based systems, though I doubt it) and you’re running into activation issues like the following:


Unable to reach Windows activation servers

Your key is not valid etc…

‘slui 4’ in run prompt doesn’t work

Try this:

1.) Open an elevated cmd prompt.

2.) C:\Windows\system32\slmgr.vbs /ipk NMCXD-TFQ77-PVBCT-XVV68-TQ726

3.) You may get an error message but you can ignore this.

4.) slui 4 in run prompt should work now and you can activate your Windows 10 Pro installation via the installation ID.

If this doesn’t work, you have any issues, questions or comments, please leave a comment below.
