Episode 611 – Metasploit 101 with Mubix

After much request we’ve dedicated an episode to Metasploit. Room362.com’s very own Rob Fuller, aka Mubix, joins us in studio to show us the basics of exploiting and the power of auxiliary modules.

Put Mubix in a room with a whiteboard and prepare to take notes. Go grab yourself a copy of Metasploit, or build a BackTrack Virtual Machine and start playing. Mubix’s complete show notes can be found at Room362.com. Mubix also recommends the free Offensive Security course Metasploit Unleashed – Mastering the Framework.

    I have to say that Mubix was either really tired, unrehearsed, or didn’t know what he’s talking about and since he’s a security professional I don’t think the latter is the case. What’s up? I know you can’t be great every time but he was far more sluggish and disconnected then previously.

    That aside, I like the show! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good information. There is alot of cool things you can do with metasploit it seems. A good tool to test your systems security. This is why I watch Hak5. So in short good content thats the most important, but Mubix was a little off.

    I tried out the Macrium Reflect Free mentioned last week.

    The first machine I tried it on produced an unknown error about a third of the way into the image burn process.
    The second machine appeared to produce a good backup DVD set without errors but the restore utility could not identify any data recovery sets on the image DVDs.
    Free…and worth less than that.
    Have you actually tried this software?

    I’ve wanted to know more about metasploit for a while … but Mubix was really not on the ball. Maybe an outline would help stay on track. Some graphics about what’s going on could also be helpful. I know you guys can do better.

    Afraid I have to agree with you there. I’m a huge fan of Hak5, and Mubix has been great before, but the long pauses and shaky “uhh… wait, what?” made the ep unbearable to watch all the way through. ๐Ÿ™

    Perhaps a good night’s sleep and some [caffeinated beverage of choice] would help next time?

    I still look forward to the next ep though. Things have been getting interesting!

    Give Mubix a break. He’s coming back with a vengence, now that he knows to use a different password on each site he creates an account on.

    But seriously. Mubix is workin’ it hard, building his brand, so give the guy a break if he doesn’t have a class ready at the drop of a hat. Visio has a pretty high learning curve.

    Leave Britney Alone!

    You get what you pay for…and from my perspective, Hak5/team *give* ten times as much as you all. Fu(k 0Ff if you didn’t like this espisode!


    If you weren’t drunk, WHY THE HELL NOT! Please stay lucid for Metasploit 201.


    Keep up the *awesome* work!

  • Warezjoe

    Interesting episode. Seemed a bit more difficult than it needed to be. Maybe demoing the GUI would have be good too.

    Mubix did a good job considering the following:
    probably tired?
    probably large consumption of beer?
    probably bored talking about Metasploit?

    I learned alot from this, while it’s a little dry, it’s a very technical segment that you need to just hunker down and watch in piecemeal.

    I truly love your website.. Pleasant colors & theme. Did you build
    this amazing site yourself? Please reply back as I’m trying
    to create my own site and would like to find out where you
    got this from or what the theme is named. Thanks!
