Metasploit Exploit Framework Version 3.0 Released

Finally it’s out of BETA, Metasploit Framework Version 3.0 has been released and it’s a lot more Windows friendly.

The Metasploit Framework (“Metasploit”) is a development platform for creating security tools and exploits. Version 3.0 contains 177 exploits, 104 payloads, 17 encoders, and 3 nop modules. Additionally, 30 auxiliary modules are included that perform a wide range of tasks, including host discovery, protocol fuzzing, and denial of service testing.

Metasploit is used by network security professionals to perform penetration tests, system administrators to verify patch installations, product vendors to perform regression testing, and security researchers world-wide. The framework is written in the Ruby programming language and includes components written in C and assembler.

Metasploit runs on all modern operating systems, including Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, and most flavors of BSD. Metasploit has been used on a wide range of hardware platforms, from massive Unix mainframes to the tiny Nokia n800 handheld. Users can access Metasploit using the tab-completing console interface, the command line scripting interface, or the AJAX-enabled web interface. The Windows version of Metasploit includes all software dependencies and a selection of useful networking tools.

Metasploit 3 is a from-scratch rewrite of Metasploit 2 using the Ruby scripting language. The development process took nearly two years to complete and resulted in over 100,000 lines of Ruby code.

Metasploit is now released under the Metasploit Framework License. This license allows anyone to use the framework for almost anything, but prevents commercial abuse and outright code theft. The Metasploit Framework License helps keep the platform stable and still allows module developers to choose their own licensing terms for their code (commercial or open source). For more information, please see the license document included in the distribution.

    Metasploit is kind of neat but it’s still a long way from nessus. If it keeps improving, some day we might integrate it in to our vam product line.

    Mitchel: Yah I agree, but from my perspective I think Metasploit and Nessus compliment each other, rather than act as competing products. As Nessus being a very competent scanner often can’t go the last leg and actually use an exploit to show the proof of concept, where Metasploit can.
