Use Metasploit Framework to develop functional exploits faster and with less effort
The security tool Metasploit Framework (MSF) was the first open-source and freely available exploit development framework, and since 2003, it has grown to be one of the security community's most popular tools. Investigate the usefulness of the Metasploit project suite of tools while bridging the gap between exploitation theory and practice in this sample chapter from Sockets, Shellcode, Porting, and Coding: Reverse Engineering Exploits and Tool Coding for Security Professionals. First, learn how to use Metasploit Framework as an exploitation platform. Then, study Metasploit's ability to significantly reduce the amount of time and background knowledge needed to develop functional exploits. Finally, explore how to integrate an exploit directly into Metasploit Framework via a line-by-line analysis of an integrated exploit module.
