Join Malcolm Shore for an in-depth discussion in this video A refresher on Metasploit, part of Penetration Testing Essential Training.
- [Instructor] When pentesting, it's useful…to provide evidence that vulnerabilities…are in fact exploitable.…To do this, we can use Metasploit,…which is here in the favorites menu.…The first time Metasploit starts up,…it will create and prepare its databases,…otherwise it will skip this initialization step.…After completing its startup, the msf prompt appears.…Metasploit is now ready for use.…Metasploit includes a database of testing modules;…assembly and encoding capabilities…to manipulate, exploit, and payload code;…and the Meterpreter, a payload…which provides a powerful remote shell.…
We can see that it includes 1,673 exploits,…959 auxiliary modules, 294 post exploitation modules,…and 489 payloads in its database.…Exploit modules are run against a target system…to check whether its vulnerable.…Payloads are sent to a target system…to demonstrate the exploit was successful…by executing on the target.…The first Metasploit command I'll enter is help.…This shows all the commands…that we can issue in Metasploit.…
Cybersecurity expert Malcolm Shore reviews popular pen testing tools, as well as the Bash and Python scripting skills required to be able to acquire, modify, and re-use exploit code. He also provides a refresher on Kali Linux and introduces techniques for testing web services. At the end of this course, you'll be prepared to take more advanced training, and to pursue the popular Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) certification.
