Msfconsole Commands

From Metasploit Unleashed
Jump to: navigation, search

The msfconsole has many different command options to chose from.


back

Once you have finished working with a particular module, or if you inadvertently select the wrong module, you can issue the 'back' command to move out of the current context. This, however is not required. Just as you can in commercial routers, you can switch modules from within other modules. As a reminder, variables will only carry over if they are set globally.

msf auxiliary(ms09_001_write) > back

check

There aren't many exploits that support it, but there is also a 'check' option that will check to see if a target is vulnerable to a particular exploit instead of actually exploiting it.

msf exploit(ms08_067_netapi) > show options

Module options (exploit/windows/smb/ms08_067_netapi):

   Name     Current Setting  Required  Description
   ----     ---------------  --------  -----------
   RHOST    172.16.194.134   yes       The target address
   RPORT    445              yes       Set the SMB service port
   SMBPIPE  BROWSER          yes       The pipe name to use (BROWSER, SRVSVC)


Exploit target:

msf exploit(ms08_067_netapi) > check

[*] Verifying vulnerable status... (path: 0x0000005a)
[*] System is not vulnerable (status: 0x00000000)
[*] The target is not exploitable.
msf  exploit(ms08_067_netapi) >



color

You can enable or disable if the output you get through the msfconsole will contain colors.

msf > banner
Usage: color <'true'|'false'|'auto'>

Enable or disable color output.


connect

There is a miniature netcat clone built into the msfconsole that supports SSL, proxies, pivoting, and file sends. By issuing the 'connect' command with an ip address and port number, you can connect to a remote host from within msfconsole the same as you would with netcat or telnet.

msf > connect 192.168.1.1 23
[*] Connected to 192.168.1.1:23
DD-WRT v24 std (c) 2008 NewMedia-NET GmbH
Release: 07/27/08 (SVN revision: 10011)
DD-WRT login:

You can see all the additional options by issuing the "-h" parameter.
msf > connect -h
Usage: connect [options]  

Communicate with a host, similar to interacting via netcat, taking advantage of
any configured session pivoting.

OPTIONS:

    -C        Try to use CRLF for EOL sequence.
    -P <opt>  Specify source port.
    -S <opt>  Specify source address.
    -c <opt>  Specify which Comm to use.
    -h        Help banner.
    -i <opt>  Send the contents of a file.
    -p <opt>  List of proxies to use.
    -s        Connect with SSL.
    -u        Switch to a UDP socket.
    -w <opt>  Specify connect timeout.
    -z        Just try to connect, then return.

edit

The edit command will edit the current module with $VISUAL or $EDITOR. By default this will open the current module in Vim.

msf exploit(ms10_061_spoolss) > edit

msf  exploit(ms09_050_smb2_negotiate_func_index) >


irb

Running the irb command will drop you into a live Ruby interpreter shell where you can issue commands and create Metasploit scripts on the fly. This feature is also very useful for understanding the internals of the Framework.

msf > irb
[*] Starting IRB shell...

>> puts "Hello, metasploit!"
Hello, metasploit!
=> nil
>> Framework::Version
=> "4.8.2-2014022601"


jobs

Jobs are modules that are running in the background. The jobs command provides the ability to list and terminate these jobs.

msf > jobs -h
Usage: jobs [options]

Active job manipulation and interaction.

OPTIONS:

    -K        Terminate all running jobs.
    -h        Help banner.
    -i <opt>  Lists detailed information about a running job.
    -k <opt>  Terminate the specified job name.
    -l        List all running jobs.
    -v        Print more detailed info.  Use with -i and -l

msf > 


kill

The kill command will kill any running jobs when supplied with the job id.

msf exploit(ms10_002_aurora) > kill 0
Stopping job: 0...

[*] Server stopped.


load

The load command loads a plugin from Metasploit's plugin directory. Arguments are passed as key=val on the shell.

msf > load
Usage: load <path> [var=val var=val ...]

Loads a plugin from the supplied path.  If path is not absolute, first looks
in the user's plugin directory (/root/.msf4/plugins) then
in the framework root plugin directory (/usr/share/metasploit-framework/plugins).
The optional var=val options are custom parameters that can be passed to plugins.

msf > load pcap_log
[*] PcapLog plugin loaded.
[*] Successfully loaded plugin: pcap_log


loadpath

The loadpath command will load a third-part module tree for the path so you can point Metasploit at your 0-day exploits, encoders, payloads, etc.

msf > loadpath /home/secret/modules

Loaded 0 modules.

unload

Conversely, the unload command unloads a previously loaded plugin and removes any extended commands.

msf > unload pcap_log
Unloading plugin pcap_log...unloaded.


resource

The resource command runs resource (batch) files that can be loaded through msfconsole.

msf > resource
Usage: resource path1 [path2 ...]

Run the commands stored in the supplied files.  Resource files may also contain
ruby code between  tags.

See also: makerc

Some attacks such as Karmetasploit use resource files to run a set of commands in a karma.rc file to create an attack. Later on we will discuss how, outside of Karmetasploit, that can be very useful.

msf > resource karma.rc
[*] Processing karma.rc for ERB directives.
resource (karma.rc)> db_connect msf3:PASSWORD@127.0.0.1:7175/msf3
resource (karma.rc)> use auxiliary/server/browser_autopwn
...snip...

Batch files can greatly speed up testing and development times as well as allow the user to automate many tasks. Besides loading a batch file from within msfconsole, they can also be passed at startup using the '-r' flag. The simple example below creates a batch file to display the Metasploit version number at startup.

root@kali:~# echo version > version.rc
root@kali:~# msfconsole -r version.rc


 _                                                    _

route

The "route" command in Metasploit allows you to route sockets through a session or 'comm', providing basic pivoting capabilities. To add a route, you pass the target subnet and network mask followed by the session (comm) number.

meterpreter > route -h
Usage: route [-h] command [args]

Display or modify the routing table on the remote machine.

Supported commands:

   add    [subnet] [netmask] [gateway]
   delete [subnet] [netmask] [gateway]
   list

meterpreter >
meterpreter > route

search

The msfconsole includes an extensive regular-expression based search functionality. If you have a general idea of what you are looking for you can search for it via 'search '. In the output below, a search is being made for MS Bulletin MS09-011. The search function will locate this string within the module names, descriptions, references, etc.

Note the naming convention for Metasploit modules uses underscores versus hyphens.

sessions

The 'sessions' command allows you to list, interact with, and kill spawned sessions. The sessions can be shells, Meterpreter sessions, VNC, etc.

msf > sessions -h
Usage: sessions [options]

Active session manipulation and interaction.

OPTIONS:

    -K        Terminate all sessions
    -c <opt>  Run a command on the session given with -i, or all
    -d <opt>  Detach an interactive session
    -h        Help banner
    -i <opt>  Interact with the supplied session ID
    -k <opt>  Terminate session
    -l        List all active sessions
    -q        Quiet mode
    -r        Reset the ring buffer for the session given with -i, or all
    -s <opt>  Run a script on the session given with -i, or all
    -u <opt>  Upgrade a win32 shell to a meterpreter session
    -v        List verbose fields

To list any active sessions, pass the '-l' options to 'sessions'.

Metasploit also allows you the ability to set an encoder to use at run-time. This is particularly useful in exploit development when you aren't quite certain as to which payload encoding methods will work with an exploit.

unset

The opposite of the 'set' command, of course, is 'unset'. 'Unset' removes a parameter previously configured with 'set'. You can remove all assigned variables with 'unset all'.

msf > set RHOSTS 192.168.1.0/24
RHOSTS => 192.168.1.0/24
msf > set THREADS 50
THREADS => 50
msf > set

msf > unset all

msf > set

msf > 


setg

In order to save a lot of typing during a pentest, you can set global variables within msfconsole. You can do this with the 'setg' command. Once these have been set, you can use them in as many exploits and auxiliary modules as you like. You can also save them for use the next time your start msfconsole. However, the pitfall is forgetting you have saved globals, so always check your options before you run or exploit. Conversely, you can use the unsetg command to unset a global variable. In the examples that follow, variables are entered in all-caps (ie: LHOST), but Metasploit is case-insensitive so it is not necessary to do so.

msf > setg LHOST 192.168.1.101
LHOST => 192.168.1.101
msf > setg RHOSTS 192.168.1.0/24
RHOSTS => 192.168.1.0/24
msf > setg RHOST 192.168.1.136
RHOST => 192.168.1.136

After setting your different variables, you can run the 'save' command to save your current environment and settings. With your settings saved, they will be automatically loaded on startup which saves you from having to set everything again.

msf > save
Saved configuration to: /root/.msf4/config

Entering 'show' at the msfconsole prompt will display every module within Metasploit.

msf > show

There are a number of 'show' commands you can use but the ones you will use most frequently are 'show auxiliary', 'show exploits', 'show payloads', 'show encoders', and 'show nops'.

auxiliary

Executing 'show auxiliary' will display a listing of all of the available auxiliary modules within Metasploit. As mentioned earlier, auxiliary modules include scanners, denial of service modules, fuzzers, and more.

msf > show auxiliary

exploits

Naturally, 'show exploits' will be the command you are most interested in running since at its core, Metasploit is all about exploitation. Run 'show exploits' to get a listing of all exploits contained in the framework.

msf > show exploits

payloads

Running 'show payloads' will display all of the different payloads for all platforms available within Metasploit.

msf > show payloads

payloads

As you can see, there are a lot of payloads available. Fortunately, when you are in the context of a particular exploit, running 'show payloads' will only display the payloads that are compatible with that particular exploit. For instance, if it is a Windows exploit, you will not be shown the Linux payloads.

options

If you have selected a specific module, you can issue the 'show options' command to display which settings are available and/or required for that specific module.

msf exploit(ms08_067_netapi) > show options

Module options:

   Name     Current Setting  Required  Description
   ----     ---------------  --------  -----------

targets

If you aren't certain whether an operating system is vulnerable to a particular exploit, run the 'show targets' command from within the context of an exploit module to see which targets are supported.


msf  exploit(ms08_067_netapi) > show targets

Exploit targets:

   Id  Name

use

When you have decided on a particular module to make use of, issue the 'use' command to select it. The 'use' command changes your context to a specific module, exposing type-specific commands. Notice in the output below that any global variables that were previously set are already configured.
