In Detail

The Metasploit framework is an exploit development framework. It has evolved as a one stop shop for all the needs of ethical hacking. For a beginner who wishes to learn the framework and domain, Metasploit provides everything to make your life easier and secure your world from attackers.

This book is written in such a way that readers can start using the framework right from the word go. From exploiting to auditing, it shows you amazing ways to prevent attacks from hackers. The chapters are designed to balance the theory as well as the practical needs of a learner.

Instant Metasploit Starter begins with setting up your virtual lab as an attacker and a victim. This provides a real-world feel to the learning. It takes the Windows platform as an example and explains the vulnerabilities in the Windows OS and also shows how Metasploit can exploit these vulnerabilities.

The book doesn't just stop with exploitation, but also covers the post exploitation tasks such as credential stealing, token stealing, elevating privileges, and more.
