The Exploit Database is an archive of public exploits and corresponding vulnerable software, developed for use by penetration testers and vulnerability researchers. Its aim is to serve as the most comprehensive collection of exploits, shellcode and papers gathered through direct submissions, mailing lists, and other public sources, and present them in a freely-available and easy-to-navigate database. The Exploit Database is a repository for exploits and Proof-of-Concepts rather than advisories, making it a valuable resource for those who need actionable data right away. You can learn more about the project here (about) and here (history).
This repository is updated daily with the most recently added submissions.

apt install will do the trick (everything will be taken care of):
root@kali:~# apt -y install exploitdb exploitdb-papers
There isn't any need to use the
git section below, if you are a Kali user (unless you want the latest papers).
$ sudo git clone https://github.com/offensive-security/exploitdb.git /opt/exploitdb $ sudo git clone https://github.com/offensive-security/exploitdb-papers.git /opt/exploitdb-papers $ sudo ln -sf /opt/exploitdb/searchsploit /usr/local/bin/searchsploit $ cp -n /opt/exploitdb/.searchsploit_rc ~/ $ vim ~/.searchsploit_rc
If you wish for this to be integrated into SearchSploit allowing for quick offline searching, you will need to make sure your
.searchsploit_rc information is accurate for your setup (mainly
$ cat ~/.searchsploit_rc ...SNIP... ##-- Papers files_array+=("files_papers.csv") path_array+=("/opt/exploitdb-papers") name_array+=("Paper") git_array+=("https://github.com/offensive-security/exploitdb-papers.git") package_array+=("exploitdb-papers") $
Make sure the
