WonderHowTo Welcome back, my tenderfoot hackers! I have written many tutorials on hacking using Metasploitincluding leaving no evidence behind and exploring the inner architecture.
Also, there are my Metasploit cheat sheets for commands and hacking scripts. With this guide, I'm starting a sequential and cumulative series for learning and using Metasploit.
This first part will cover the very basics of Metasploit for those of you who are new to Null Byte, and as a refresher for those of you who are not.
With that in mind, this will be quick and dirty first lesson on using one of the most powerful hacking platforms on planet Earth. Originally written in Perl, Metasploit was completely rewritten in Ruby in Init was purchased by Rapid7, an IT security company that also produces the vulnerability scanner Nexpose.
Metasploit is now in version 4. It's also built into BackTrack. For those of you using Windows, you can also grab it from Rapid7, but I do not recommend running Metasploit in Windows. Although you can download and install it, some of the capabilities of this hacking framework do not translate over to the Windows operating system, and many of my hacks here on Null Byte will not work on the Windows platform.
Metasploit now has multiple products, including Metasploit Pro the full commercial version and the Community edition that is built into Kali and remains free.
Ways to Use Metasploit Metasploit can be accessed or used in multiple ways. The most common method, and the one I use, is the interactive Metasploit console. This is the one that is activated by typing msfconsole at the command line in Kali. There are several other methods as well.
Msfcli First, you can use Metasploit from the command line, or in msfcli mode. Although it appears that when we are in the console that we are using the command line, we are actually using an interactive console with special keywords and commands.
From the msfcli, we ARE actually using a Linux command line. We can get the help screen for msfcli by typing: In my tutorial on creating payloads to evade AV softwarewe are using the msfencode and msfpayload command in the command line msfcli mode.
The drawback to using the msfcli is that it is not as well-supported as the msfconsole, and you are limited to a single shell, making some of the more complex exploits impossible.
Armitage If you want to use Metasploit with a GUI graphical user interfaceat least a couple of options are available. First, Raphael Mudge has developed the Armitage presumably a reference to a primary character in the seminal cyberhacking science fiction work, Neuromancer —a must read for any hacker with a taste for science fiction.
To start Armitage in Kali, simply type: You start Metasploit as a server and Armitage becomes the client, thereby giving you full access to Metasploit's features through a full featured—thought not completely intuitive—GUI.
If you really need a GUI to feel comfortable, I don't want to discourage you from using Armitage, but mastering the command line is a necessity for any self-respecting hacker. Modules Metasploit has six different types of modules.Metasploit.

Despite its good intentions, hacking with Metasploit is a reality enterprises must face. malware research, sandboxes. Research is obviously vital to any attack. PunkSPIDER and SHODAN would be two examples of services that a penetration tester could use before opening up Metasploit.
Both PunkSPIDER and SHODAN act almost like search engines with the difference in that these engines look for server information and vulnerabilities. The Metasploit Project, a Rapid7 Open Source Project, provides useful information to people who perform penetration testing, IDS signature development, and exploit research.
Metasploit Framework is a powerful open source tool for penetration testing.
Whether you’re looking to use it for work or are merely interested in experimenting with it, you can run Metasploit Framework in a Docker container without having to deal with the pain of installing the code and its dependencies.
