Meterpreter Testing

This week’s release adds new payload tests to our automated test suite. This is intended to help the team and community members identify issues and behavior discrepancies before changes are made. Payloads run on a variety of different platforms including Windows, Linux, and OS X each of which has multiple Meterpreter implementations available that are now tested to help ensure consistency. This should improve payload stability and make testing easier for community members that are contributing new features to the payloads.

Enhancements and features (1)

  • #18288 from adfoster-r7 - Adds stability enhancements to Meterpreter payloads. Additionally, this adds a large suite of automated sanity tests to Github Actions that verify OSX/Windows/Linux/Python/Java/PHP Meterpreter payloads work.

Bugs fixed (3)

  • #18275 from adfoster-r7 - Updates the module metadata for the Java reverse_http and reverse_https stagers to be treated as a dynamic payload size, instead of a static/fixed size. This size change can happen as the Java payload contains a user-configurable HTTP callback URL, and combined with the Zip compression present in JAR files - the overall generated payload size can change as a result.
  • #18278 from rorymckinley - Fixes a crash when running the auxiliary/scanner/mysql/mysql_login module against newer versions of MySQL.
  • #18289 from zeroSteiner - Fixes a typo in the exploit/freebsd/http/citrix_formssso_target_rce docs.
