Project 1 - Metasploit


In this project, students will gain a working understanding of the Metasploit Framework and attack a Windows XP SP3 virtual machine, and the Metasploitable virtual machine.


Note that a working virtualization environment should already be set up (if not, see the Lab Setup), and a significant amount of Linux and Windows knowledge is assumed.

Refer to Exploiting with Metasploit (pdf) for previous students' project on Metasploit. The content should be treated as is.
