How To Install BugTraq II As Virtual Machine Step by Step - DIGITAL UPDATES

Hi, welcome to my niche post about how to install Bugtraq 2 in Vmware and VirtualBox. Bugtraq II is yet the latest release of Bugtraq but its further versions will also install in the same way. BugTraq is 8th most popular operating systems used by hackers in List By Digital Updates.


0.) Download Vmware and Virtualbox.

If your PC is 64 bit I suggest VMware workstation or player because it is reliable and has wide customer support even you can get help on other sites too and the solutions are simple and straightforward.And the most popular thing about VMware is that VMware has good intelligence if you forget to eject .ISO file it will remind you and eject it automatically if you agreed.


If your PC is 32 bit only Virtualbox will work.And bear this In your mind you Have to choose 32-bit kernel operating system files because of these lines on virtual box's site "Please note that the package architecture must fit your host operating system architecture. So if you are running a 32-bit kernel on a 64-bit capable CPU you have to install the32-bit version (x86/amd64)".
You must need anyone of them For Installing Linux Distributions On Your PC without deleting or Harming Windows.The installation Process Is Simple and doesn't need Any instructions but in case if you are stuck you Can Ask Without Hesitation.I guarantee the one who chooses VMware workstation will be in 80℅ less trouble.if they choose according to their kernel versions.

Download ISO File Of Black Widow BUGTRAQ is also known as Black Widow from the link provided as followed choose ISO file according to your Kernel Version.DOWNLOAD .ISO FILE ACCORDING TO YOUR, HOST KERNEL.

2.) After Completing installation Move ISO image To your desired directory.And open VMware or virtual box. actually, VMware and Virtual boxes are made for offices which work on servers or Networking So in offices instead of using multiple PC all the work can be done on just one PC.

1.C) Now click on create a new Virtual machine for VMware or Only new for VirtualBox as you see in above screen will appear.To help you start setting up your Virtual Machine actually, It is Virtual Machine setting wizard.Wizard is a guided option to set up the software according to what you want.



1.D) People with VMware select typical installation.and click next to see a beginner's guided wizard which means the wizard will be easy and straightforward with tips on every step when you have to make big decisions.Or even small but complicated like you will find below asking all files in one partition or split files etc.

1.E) Now choose ISO file of Bugtraq II black widow which you downloaded in step one.while we can also render our ISO file later but because its good time to be rendered and we also are ready for it to be rendered.mean our downloads and efforts aren't pending.

1.F) Now select Linux and choose Ubuntu 64 bit/32 bit according to The kernel of ISO file.remember Kernels are bits and most often 32bit kernels are equals to x86. So if you think that x86 is larger than 64 bit you are wrong you may know this before.But I will like to guide you whatever you can because later you could face tasks yourself and with open-mindedness.

1.G) Now Set Name And directory/location where you wants to keep your guest operating system files and name Of The operating system which is just shown to you for differentiating between other operating systems In your VMware Workstation.

1.H) Now select Virtual disk space means the maximum space that can be consumed by operating for Bugtraq II (black widow) the minimum size is 12 GB but if you use 20-25 GB it will work smoother.Virtual Disk Space is actually a virtual/easily-removable Partition which will not hurt anything on your Hard Disk drive at all except consuming disk space according to the usage of the guest operating system.

1.I) Now Click Edit Settings for this Machine Choose Hardware From the top of the screen in-case if not already highlighted Now Click Memory And Choose RAM at least 1 GB is recommended (taught or told) by elders or experienced ones)it doesn't means it wont work if you allocate 989 MB or 2 GB.

1.J) Now review the hardware Configuration and start The Machine again if machine doesn't starts don't forget to ask me in comment or via Email no Matter For Me Because I am doing this all to help you and others like you if you will ask me I will edit my post and mention that point accordingly.


1.D) Now Select Name Which will be shown to you For Differentiating in between different guest operating systems And then Choose Type Which is  Linux of course and then select version.if you can't get version choose UBUNTU 64bit if your kernel is 64 bit or select UBUNTU for 32 bit OS.

Now Choose RAM (random access memory) actually you will see memory written on your wizard but I told RAM to tell you the importance of it.So you will choose wisely and efficiently for smoother performance.But choose at-least 1 GB or greater because it is recommended.

1.F) Create a new virtual hard disk. Select the second option “create a new virtual hard disk now“. Hit the "create” button.Actually, This will be your virtual Hard Disk But it will be primary (on which Operating Systems Boots/Depends) hard Disk for guest Operating System.

1.G) Choose your Hard Disk file type as VDI and click next then choose dynamically allocated you can Also set fixed size because Dynamically seems to be a better option for us instead if sucking whole hard disk storage at once it's better to increase size as per usage.

1.H) Choose your hard disk size From 20 to 25 GB for Good performance.But at least 12 GB is required because This machine does not know that it is Virtual Machine It will bring every Driver and software with it like it does when you Install it on your System boot Sorry for the story but it's for you.Now Click Create.

(1)Choose storage
(2)choose Empty
(3)Click on DVD icon next to IDE Secondary Master
(4) Choose a Virtual CD/DVD disk file, Which is the BugTraq ISO you have downloaded. Click OK.And now start the engine.



1.) After starting your Guest OS Select start Bugtraq in Live Mode.Actually, live mode is a mode which starts the machine without allocating or using your hard disk at all but we will install it from live mode but it requires username and password for login so username is Bugtraq and password is 123456.

2.) After landing on desktop click on the icon "install Bugtraq black widow".A popup will appear asking you for password write 123456 in that form and click OK.Actually, 123456 is the root password for Bugtraq II black widow.

3.) Now A New Window will open asking you for language to use in installation Now Choose Language As English Or Other As Required.but remember that it will not be just your installation language but it will also be your entire virtual machine Choose Wisely if you choose English then I am comfortable you can accomplish.

5.) Now a new screen appears asking you nothing but for verifying you that installation process requires 21.3 GB.with the tick sign in case if you see X sign over there then increase your VBOX memory size to 25 GB and if it's same then click on the cross and select Hard Disk manually.ENSURE that VBOX or VM has written over there. and click continue.

6.) Now click on Erase disk and install Bugtraq II.Do not Panic because it's not your Real Disk it will be your virtual hard disk instead of on which Bugtraq will install Bugtraq asking it so that it could verify that even a dot should not be there before it installs itself on Virtual Hard Disk.

7.) Now it will ask you again the same question erase the disk and install Bugtraq with a drop-down menu from where you can choose hard Disk.Now Choose hard disk as VMware written on your hard disk name if you are using VMware.Or VBOX has written over somewhere if you are using VirtualBox.

8.) Now You Will see that installation is started but you will have to stay it will ask you questions during this process the first question will be.About your Time zone select your timezone and click continue.your timezone will be asked for setting your Time in Linux OS like GMT +5 etc. Don't Panic it will not be told to others ;).

9.) Next question will be About Keyboard Layout Select ENGLISH US two time if you think your keyboard is different Click On Detect Keyboard layout. complete the tests given to you and click continue.But please choose right Keyboard Layout because if you select wrong Keyboard layout when you type your name you will see it in a different language even the meaning will not be same because of its a keyboard, not a dictionary obviously.

10.) Now you will see small box on the screen which is installing Bugtraq on your Virtual Hard Disk.After Complete it will ask you to restart or continue pen-testing click restart.BUT Virtual BOX USERS Don't Turn your machine again On yet after installation you have some work.


After the installation complete you have to Remove the Bugtraq ISO image. Go to settings and choose storage under the Controller: IDE click on ISO which you attached first and choose Remove Attachment. This step is very important otherwise, the installation will restart.
