Metasploit Framework Updated: FastLib and More

Metasploit development moves fast. Blindingly fast, fueled by tons of open source contributors -- which is one of the reasons why we moved away from our tried and true SVN repository and on to GitHub. Now that we're on a more modern, more social development platform, we have all new ways to get overwhelmed with the pace of change on the Framework, especially since contributor code is that much easier to integrate now. So, in order to ensure that the more notable week-over-week changes get their

Metasploit Framework 4.0 Released!

It's been a long road to 4.0. The first 3.0 release was almost 5 years ago and the first release under the Rapid7 banner was almost 2 years ago. Since then, Metasploit has really spread its wings. When 3.0 was released, it was under a EULA-like license with specific restrictions against using it in commercial products. Over time, the reasons for that decision became less important and the need for more flexibility came to the fore; in 2008, we released Metasploit 3.2 under a 3-clause BSD licen

w3af - And now, with a stable core

Since our latest w3af release in mid January [/2011/01/19/w3af-10-rc5-better-stronger-faster], and our new windows installer release a couple of months ago, we've got lots of encouraging words telling us we are going in the right direction. The objective was near and we could almost taste it. Having a stable code-base is no joke, it requires countless hours of writing unit-tests, running w3af scripts and most importantly: fixing bugs. Now, finally we're here! In this latest release, we bring y

Metasploit Framework 3.7.0 Released!

Originally Posted by egypt The Metasploit team has spent the last two months focused on one of the least-visible, but most important pieces of the Metasploit Framework; the session backend. Metasploit 3.7 represents a complete overhaul of how sessions are tracked within the framework and associated with the backend database. This release also significantly improves the staging process for the reverse_tcp stager and Meterpreter session initialization. Shell sessions now hold their output in a ri
