Overview of this book

The book starts with a hands-on Day 1 chapter, covering the basics of the Metasploit framework and preparing the readers for a self-completion exercise at the end of every chapter. The Day 2 chapter dives deep into the use of scanning and fingerprinting services with Metasploit while helping the readers to modify existing modules according to their needs. Following on from the previous chapter, Day 3 will focus on exploiting various types of service and client-side exploitation while Day 4 will focus on post-exploitation, and writing quick scripts that helps with gathering the required information from the exploited systems. The Day 5 chapter presents the reader with the techniques involved in scanning and exploiting various services, such as databases, mobile devices, and VOIP. The Day 6 chapter prepares the reader to speed up and integrate Metasploit with leading industry tools for penetration testing. Finally, Day 7 brings in sophisticated attack vectors and challenges based on the user’s preparation over the past six days and ends with a Metasploit challenge to solve.

Scanning SNMP services with Metasploit

Let us perform a TCP port scan of a different network as shown in the following screenshot:

We will be using the tcp scan module listed under auxiliary/scanner/portscan, as shown in the preceding screenshot. Let's run the module and analyze the results as follows:

We can see that we found two services only that don't look that appealing. Let us also perform a UDP sweep of the network and check if we can find something interesting:

To carry out a UDP sweep, we will use the auxiliary/scanner/discovery/udp_sweep module as shown in the preceding screenshot. Next, we only need to provide the network range by setting the RHOSTS option. Additionally, you can increase the number of threads as well. Let's run the module and analyze results:

Amazing! We can see plenty of results generated by the UDP sweep module. Additionally, a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) service is also discovered on

The SNMP, is a commonly used service that provides...
