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.

Using AutoRunScript in Metasploit

Metasploit offers another great feature of using AutoRunScript. The AutoRunScript option can be populated by issuing the show advanced command. AutoRunScript automates post-exploitation, and executes once access to the target has been achieved. We can either set the AutoRunScript option manually by issuing set AutoRunScript [script-name], or by using the resource script itself, which automates exploitation and post-exploitation together. AutoRunScript can also run more than one post-exploitation script by using the multi_script and multi_console_command modules as well. Let us take an example where we have two scripts, one for automating the exploitation and the second for automating the post-exploitation, as shown in the following screenshot:

This is a small post-exploitation script that automates the checkvm (a module to check whether the target is running on a virtual environment) and migrate (a module that helps in migrating from the exploited process...
