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.

Summary and exercises

Well, you learned a lot in this chapter, and you will have to research a lot before moving onto the next chapters. We covered various types of applications in this chapter and successfully managed to exploit them as well. We saw how db_nmap stores result in the database, which helps us segregate the data. We saw how vulnerable applications such as Desktop Central 9 could be exploited. We also covered applications that were tough to exploit, and gaining access to their credentials led to obtaining system-level access. We saw how we could exploit an FTP service and gain better control with extended features. Next, we saw how vulnerable browsers and malicious Android applications could lead to the compromise of the system using client-side exploitation. Finally, we looked at how we can convert an exploit to a Metasploit-compatible one.
