Two new modules to sneak in right before New Years
It’s almost that time of year – when we drop one digit and add another to the calendar. 2011, here we come! With that said – we’ve released a couple new modules for our members, both by the great Jeremy Conway.
“Evilgrade is a modular framework that allows us to take advantage of poorly and insecurely implemented application upgrade and update processes. The Evilgrade framework allows us to inject arbitrary and/or fake updates of our choosing into these applications with ease. It comes with several pre-made binaries (agents), a working default configuration for fast adoption into penetration tests, and has it’s own built in WebServer and DNSServer modules. Evilgrade is fairly simple to set up with new and/or customized settings, and also has an intelligent auto configuration process built in that
will auto populate fields such as agent size, MD5 hash value, and SHA hash values when introduce our own binary agents into the framework.”
“Armitage is a graphical user interface (GUI) attack management tool for Metasploit framework. Armitage enables us to visualize targets, choose exploits wisely, and interact with the advanced features and capabilities found within the Metasploit framework with ease. According to the author, Armitage aims to make Metasploit usable for security practitioners who understand hacking but don’t use Metasploit every day. After successfully completing this learning module and its associated lab I believe you will agree with me in that the author has done a great job of accomplishing this goal.”
