The Metasploit Project is proud to announce the release of the Metasploit Framework version 3.4.1. This release sees the first official non-Windows Meterpreter payload, in PHP as discussed last month here.
Rest assured that more is in store for Meterpreter on other platforms. A new extension called Railgun is now integrated into Meterpreter courtesy of Patrick HVE, giving you scriptable access to Windows APIs and an unprecedented amount of control over post-exploitation.
For those of you wishing to contribute to the framework, a new file called HACKING has been introduced that lays out a few guidelines to make it easier.
This release contains 16 new exploits, 22 new auxiliary modules and 11 new Meterpreter scripts for your pwning enjoyment. The major changes in terms of numbers were:
- 567 exploits and 283 auxiliary modules (up from 551 and 261 in v3.4)
- Over 40 community reported bugs were fixed and numerous interfaces were improved
