Announcements

hdm writes "After nearly two years of development, the Metasploit team is happy to announce the immediate availability of version 3.0 of the Metasploit Framework. The Metasploit Framework is a development platform for creating security tools and exploits. Version 3.0 contains 177 exploits, 104 payloads, 17 encoders, and 3 nop modules. Additionally, 30 auxiliary modules are included that perform a wide range of tasks, including host discovery, protocol fuzzing, and denial of service testing. Metasploit runs on all modern operating systems, including Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, and most flavors of BSD. Users can access Metasploit using the tab-completing console interface, the command line scripting interface, or the AJAX-enabled web interface. With over 100,000 lines of code, Metasploit is one of the largest Ruby projects in existence. Security Focus has published an interview with one of the lead developers. ZDNet, Heise, Dark Reading, InfoWorld, and many other news sources are covering this release."
