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.

Further roadmap and summary

Throughout this chapter, we looked at cutting-edge real-world scenarios, where it's not just about exploiting vulnerable software; instead, web applications made way for us to get control of the systems. We saw how we could use external interfaces to scan and exploit the targets from the internal network. We also saw how we could use our non-Metasploit tools with the help of meterpreter sessions to scan internal networks. By the end, we saw how we could evade AV solutions with our existing meterpreter shellcode, which made it easy to avoid the eyes of our victim. For further reading on hardcore exploitation, you can refer to my mastering series book on Metasploit called Mastering Metasploit.

You can perform the following exercises to make yourself comfortable with the content covered in this chapter:

  • Try to generate a FUD meterpreter backdoor
  • Use socks in the browser to browse content in internal networks
  • Try building shellcode without bad characters
  • Figure out the...
