Ubuntu For Virtualbox: Installing VirtualBox

Ubuntu For Virtualbox: VirtualBox is a hypervisor that can run many guest operating systems inside it so that you can experiment with your hacking tools. It is useful because you can practice without any fear of breaking the law.

Ubuntu For Virtualbox Linux: For VirtualBox can bring with it a massive change in your attitude toward your computer. While using it you can have every confidence that whenever you are inside VirtualBox, your main operating system is not affected. The host OS and the guest operating systems can still communicate with each other, and the guest operating systems also can communicate between them. VirtualBox contains a dynamic recompiler based on QEMU technology, which helps to achieve this goal.

Installing VirtualBox is simple. Whatever your operating system is, the process just requires a few clicks or a few commands.

If you're using Windows, go to the Oracle VirtualBox web page and download the latest version available. The setup process will guide you through the virtualization.

Ubuntu For Virtualbox: Windows users also can download VMware Player and install it. You'll learn how to install VMware Player in Windows later in this chapter. The difference between VirtualBox and VMware Player is subtle. Both are virtual machines and run on top of your existing operating system. For VirtualBox, you need to have an ISO image to install any operating system. For VMware Player, you need to have a specially designed VMware version of the operating system.

In this section, I will show you how to install and set up Ubuntu For VirtualBox on an Ubuntu Linux distribution. Go to the Oracle VirtualBox website’s download section and see what is available for you. Before downloading starts, it will ask for the default operating system you’re running currently. Mine is Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty), and the architecture is AMD64.

To find out what Linux distribution you are running currently, just open the terminal and type Uname -a. The terminal will spit out some vital information that includes all the data regarding your current default system. Mine is the 4.4.0-119-generic Linux version of Ubuntu, and the superuser’s name is displayed along with it; it also indicates what type of system architecture it is.

The output in my machine looks like this:

4.4.0-119-generic #143~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 2 18:04:36

UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Ubuntu For Virtualbox: x86_64 stands for 64-bit. On the VirtualBox official download page for all Linux distributions, you first download the required packages and then install them depending on your OS. For Red Hat, Fedora, or any Linux distribution belonging to that category, you will notice that the extension is .rpm. In that case, you can move to the VirtualBox folder and issue commands like rpm -I or yum install if you run Red Hat or Fedora

You can try the following commands on your Ubuntu terminal:

sudo apt-get install VirtualBox

sudo apt install VirtualBox-ext-pack

sudo apt install VirtualBox VirtualBox-ext-pack

sudo apt-get update

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://download.virtualbox.org/

VirtualBox/Debian <ubuntu-release> Contrib"

sudo apt-get install virtual-box-5.0

sudo apt-get install Dkms

sudo apt install Dkms build-essential module-assistant

The third line will check for the latest version and other functionalities required for the future.

If you do not wanna go through all that typing, there're other methods to install VirtualBox, including a graphical user interface. Absolute beginners should run the Ubuntu Linux distribution as your default OS. You can install Ubuntu For VirtualBox from the software center directly without opening the terminal or issuing any command.

The Ubuntu software center has many categories. One of them shows the installed software.

If it isn't there by default, you can just type VirtualBox in the search box, and it'll pop up. Click the Install button. This will start the installation procedure.

Now you are ready to install appliances such as Kali Linux, Windows, and Metasploitable 2 that you'll need to test your hacking-related skills.
