Unable to run or install Empire

Hey guys

I’m currently at the “Leveraging PowerShell During Exploitation”. For this lab I need to install Empire 2.1 or “powershell-empire” by BC-Security.

So I clone the Empire 2.1 repo, run the install.sh file and then try to run Empire and I get the “No module named Flask” error.

So I go for the alternative “powershell.empire”. I installed it with “sudo apt-get install powershell-empire” but when I run powershell-empire I get nothing. It seems like it does not launch.


Any ideas?

Hey @Flama,

Empire now comes in a client/server mode. You need to start the server via sudo powershel-empire server and connect via powershell-empire client command. There are a lot of options to explore thought.
