Overview of this book

Metasploit® software helps security and IT professionals identify security issues, verify vulnerability mitigations, and manage expert-driven security assessments. Capabilities include smart exploitation, password auditing, web application scanning, and social engineering. Teams can collaborate in Metasploit and present their findings in consolidated reports. The goal of the software is to provide a clear understanding of the critical vulnerabilities in any environment and to manage those risks.Metasploit Penetration Testing Cookbook targets both professionals and beginners to the framework. The chapters of the book are logically arranged with an increasing level of complexity and cover Metasploit aspects ranging from pre-exploitation to the post-exploitation phase thoroughly. The recipe structure of the book provides a good mix of both theoretical understanding and practical implementation. This book will help readers in thinking from a hacker's perspective to dig out the flaws in target networks and also to leverage the powers of Metasploit to compromise them. It will take your penetration skills to the next level.The book starts with the basics such as gathering information about your target and gradually covers advanced topics like building your own framework scripts and modules. The book goes deep into operating systems-based penetration testing techniques and moves ahead with client-based exploitation methodologies. In the post- exploitation phase, it covers meterpreter, antivirus bypass, ruby wonders, exploit building, porting exploits to framework, and third party tools like armitage, and SET. Metasploit Penetration Testing Cookbook is the required guide to penetration testing and exploitation.

Multi-attack web method

The multi-attack web method further takes web attack to the next level by combining several attacks into one. This attack method allows us to club several exploits and vulnerabilities under a single format. Once the file or URL is opened by the target user, then each attack is thrown one by one unless a successful attack is reported. SET automates the process of clubbing different attacks under a single web attack scenario. Let us move ahead and see how this is done.

How to do it...

The multi-attack web method starts similar to other web-based attacks. We start with selecting a template which can either be imported or can be cloned. The difference lies in the next step where we can select various exploits that can be added into the web attack.

Select which attacks you want to use:

1. The Java Applet Attack Method (OFF)
2. The Metasploit Browser Exploit Method (OFF)
3. Credential Harvester Attack Method (OFF)
4. Tabnabbing Attack Method (OFF)
5. Man Left in the Middle...
