Kali Linux Update Policies
The majority of the packages comprising the Kali Linux distribution are drawn directly from the Debian repositories. For those packages which have been incorporated into Kali Linux "as-is" — i.e. the vast majority — security updates arrive at essentially the same time for Kali Linux as for the main Debian distribution.
Other packages are supported on a best-effort basis by the Kali Linux development team.
