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.

Summary and preparation for real-world scenarios

This chapter allowed us to work on speeding up the process of a penetration test by automating exploitation and post-exploitation using multiple types of resource scripts. We also saw the usage and benefits of pushm, popm, and variable globalization. By the end, we saw how we could design professional reports and how the various sections of the report are to be rendered.
