Rogue Gateway Detection: Sender



This module send a series of TCP SYN and ICMP ECHO requests to each internal target host, spoofing the source address of an external system running the rogue_recv module. This allows the system running the rogue_recv module to determine what external IP a given internal system is using as its default route.

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/scanner/rogue/rogue_send
msf auxiliary(rogue_send) > show actions
msf auxiliary(rogue_send) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(rogue_send) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(rogue_send) > 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.
