    Can't run wfuzz

    After having viewed a video on how to use wfuzz to attack the MrRobot ova on vulnhub, I was going to give it a try.

    No luck:
    root@Kali:/home/dave/python-pycurl-openssl/pycurl- /usr/local/bin/wfuzz

    Warning: Pycurl is not compiled against Openssl. Wfuzz might not work correctly when fuzzing SSL sites. Check Wfuzz's documentation for more information.

    This directory is from these instructions:

    Here are the results of my trying to build it per the above instructions:

    So something is wrong, or I did something wrong.

    I've seen that error using wfuzz before, and it's worked fine with me. Have you tried letting wfuzz run?

    I tried fuzzing a VulnHub image with WP installed. But I get the error about Pycurl. So I need to figure out how to get that fixed first.

    Any thoughts?

    So wfuzz throws the Pycurl error and then just stops?
