Installing sslstrip

Note that Sslstrip in Backtrack 5 and 5R1 (both Gnome and KDE version) is encountered some error. It displayed in the main menu but when you try to use it, it would say that sslstrip is not installed.

Sslstrip is a tool required to do a MITM(man in the middle) attack, especially at https protocol. Together with ettercap, driftnet, and urlsnarf this tool can be a powerfull sniffing software.

So here's a way to fix that error

1. Download the file
# wget
2. Extract
# tar -xzvf sslstrip-0.9.tar.gz
3. Install
# cd sslstrip-0.9
# python install
There you go..
Your sslstrip is ready to use.
