No software is without a bug - but you should do your utmost to find and fix many of them - especially critical vulnerabilities. One well-known tool for penetration testing is the Metasploit framework. It combines exploits for known vulnerabilities with useful payloads to actively exploit them. It also brings tools to specifically scan systems for information.
In this talk, we’ll look at the features of the Metasploit Framework in detail. We’ll learn how exploits actually work, how to detect common vulnerabilities and how to actively exploit them. Using the intentionally vulnerable Metasploitable VM, we’ll be able to test out the Metasploit Framework live.
