How to Install REMnux on VirtualBox

This guide is about how to Install REMnux on VirtualBox. REMnux a Linux toolkit that allows you to reverse dengineer and analyze malicious software, is available. REMnux is a community-curated collection of tools that are free to use. Analysts can use it for malware analysis without having to install or configure the tools. Downloading the REMnux virtual machines in OVA format is the easiest way to get them. Then import them into your hypervisor.

You can also add the distribution to an existing operating system running a compatible Ubuntu version, or install it from scratch on a dedicated host. The REMnux toolkit provides Docker images of popular malware analysis software so you can run them as containers. You can even run REMnux as a container. The REMnux documentation website provides information on installing, using, and contributing REMnux.

A virtual machine (VM) is a virtual environment that acts as a virtual computer system with its own CPU, memory, network interface, and storage, created on a physical hardware system (external or local). Software called a hypervisor separates the machine’s resources from the hardware and provisions them appropriately for the VM to use. Below we have mention the steps to Install REMnux on VirtualBox

How to Set Up REMnux on VirtualBox

Step 1: Download the REMnux General OVA file from official REMnux wesite.

Step 2: Check SHA-256 hash. Note that shasum default algorithm is SHA-1. Specify -a 256 to get the correct hash for comparison.

shasum -a 256 rremnux-v7-focal.ova

Step 3: Open VirtualBox. Go to File -> Import Appliance (cmd + I)

Step 4: use the default settings

Step 5: Start. Try if peepdf is available.

Final Words

We hope our article on how to install REMnux in VM will help you and resolve all your problems. Virtualization consolidates many small workloads onto a single physical machine, increasing efficiency and reducing IT costs. Deploying a new virtual machine with the operating system and application(s) provides IT admins with an easy way to deploy proof-of-concept and DevTest environments before changing the production environment. And if you want to setup REMnux  in VM then follow the steps mentioned above.

I hope you understand this article, How to Install REMnux on VirtualBox.
