After fresh install of parrot sec os I noticed redis running on localhost on port 0. I can’t figure out why though. Can someone please help me out here. Thank You.
If you are using security version, some services could be enabled automatically. The reason is the packaging problems. Beef-xss, faraday, … has systemd units and the services weren’t disabled during packaging. So after user install package, the services will be enabled by default. we are doing the maintaning all security tools by ourselves so the problem is being fixed.
For the redis server, it could be used by some applications (GVM is an example) so it could be installed during installation. Redis is mantained by debian side.
To disable any service, just run
sudo systemctl disable <service name>. For example:
sudo systemctl disable redis
