Installing Cuckoo

Proceed with download and installation.

Create a user

Even if you obviously can run Cuckoo with your current user, creating a dedicated one is always a good practice.

Create a new user:

$ sudo adduser cuckoo

Make sure the new user belongs to the “vboxusers” group (or the group you used to run VirtualBox):

$ sudo useradd -G vboxusers cuckoo

Download Cuckoo

You can get your copy of Cuckoo from the official website or from our git repository.

Please notice that the archives to be downloaded from the website are core releases, while the version on git has to be considered an under development stage, therefore possibly unstable and not yet fully documented.

Install it

Extract or checkout your copy of Cuckoo to a path of your choice and you’re ready to go ;-).
