Updating metasploit 3
The exit command will close the msfconsole and will take you back to the Kali Linux terminal.
As we’ve seen earlier in this tutorial the help command will return a list of possible commands together with a description when typed at the msfconsole.
When there is an active exploit selected we can use the help command to get a list of exploit commands: When an exploit is selected with the use command we can retrieve information like the name, platform, author, available targets and a lot more by using the info command.
If we put it all together the Metasploit framework consists of the core and base, a lot of exploits, payloads, modules (Ruby classes), plugin’s, scripts and multiple user interfaces.There is also a graphical user interface available for Metasploit called Armitage.We will be looking at Armitage and how to use it instead of msfconsole in a later tutorial.Use the comment function below and we’ll try to help you as best as we can. When Metasploit has booted and the msfconsole is available we can type ‘help’ to get an overview of the Metasploit core and backend commands with a description: It would be a waste of time and outside the scope of this tutorial to explain every single Metasploit command in this tutorial.
We just want you to be up and running as soon as possible in Metasploit and therefore a basic knowledge of basics commands should be sufficient for the moment.
This will start the Postgre SQL service and Metasploit service automatically.
