How to install gobuster in Kali Linux 2020

Hello guys,

I am sure you must be aware that Kali Linux 2020 distro doesn’t have the gobuster tools pre-loaded in the package, and perhaps many of you already compiled it and made it work in your machines.

However, I am quite certain that there are still many people who were in the verge of shifting to dirb or dirbuster tools.. (which is also an awesome tool though) just because it is not available in your new distro.

To be honest, I want to have gobuster in my Kali Machine, therefore, I tried couple of ways and at the end, it did work.

Thought to share with you guys 🙂
