Metasploit 3.4.0 Hacking Framework Released

Good news if you're looking to test your security defenses - the Metasploit framework has updated to version 3.4.0.

You wouldn't use Metasploit for evil purposes, boys and girls. Would you?

More than 100 new exploits have been included compared to 3.3.0, and a slew of bug fixes have also gone into the release.

From Darknet:

This is the first version of Metasploit to have strong support for bruteforcing network protocols and gaining access with cracked credentials. A new mixin has been created that standardizes the options available to each of the brute force modules. This release includes support for brute forcing accounts over SSH, Telnet, MySQL, Postgres, SMB, DB2, and more, thanks to Tod Bearsdley and contributions from Thomas Ring.

Metasploit now has support for generating malicious JSP and WAR files along with exploits for Tomcat and JBoss that use these to gain remote access to misconfigured installations. A new mixin was creating compiling and signing Java applets on fly, courtesy of Nathan Keltner. Thanks to some excellent work by bannedit and Joshua Drake, command injection of a cmd.exe shell on Windows can be staged into a full Meterpreter shell using the new “sessions -u” syntax.

You can get all the details in the release notes.
