Shell Is Only The Beginning: Understanding Metasploit Post Exploitation Modules

  • Kevin Fiscus
  • Wednesday, May 24th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Metasploit is a fantastic hacking tool. Having a huge range or exploits and a collection of different payloads that are easy to use makes compromising vulnerable system almost trivial. Many a penetration tester have been given the opportunity to do their "happy dance" by compromising a system and getting shell on the target system. Getting shell however, is only the beginning of the penetration test. When taking martial arts it is common to hear that becoming a blackbelt is only the beginning of the training. Penetration testing is similar. The test really begins when you get shell. Once you have access to the compromised system, what do you do? This talk will discuss the often overlooked post exploitation modules in Metasploit. These are the components in Metasploit that allow you to capture keystrokes, identify new targets, grab credentials, identify users, determine what applications are installed and even identify if you have compromised a physical or virtual host. During this talk we will describe and demonstrate many of these modules adding to your arsenal of penetration testing techniques.
