SMS Client



This module sends a text message to multiple phones of the same carrier. You can use it to send a malicious link to phones. Please note that you do not use this module to send a media file (attachment). In order to send a media file, please use auxiliary/client/mms/send_mms instead.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/client/sms/send_text
msf auxiliary(send_text) > show actions
msf auxiliary(send_text) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(send_text) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(send_text) > run 

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
