Lo millor de la DefCon 12: The Metasploit Project

Reading time: 2 – 2 minutes

El més destacat de la DefCon 12: Metasploit

The Metasploit Framework is an advanced open-source platform for
developing, testing, and using exploit code. This project initially started off
as a portable network game and has evolved into a powerful tool for penetration
testing, exploit development, and vulnerability research.

The Framework was written in the Perl scripting language and includes
various components written in C, assembler, and Python. The widespread support
for the Perl language allows the Framework to run on almost any Unix-like
system under its default configuration. A customized Cygwin environment is
provided for users of Windows-based operating systems. The project core is
dual-licensed under the GPLv2 and Perl Artistic Licenses, allowing it to be
used in both open-source and commercial projects.

This project can be roughly compared to commercial offerings such as
Immunity’s CANVAS and Core Security Technology’s Impact. The major difference
between the Framework and these commercial products is the focus; while the
commercial products need to always provide the latest exploits and an intuitive
GUI, the Framework was designed to facilitate research and experimentation with
new technologies.
