Offensive Security is happy to announce the availability of Metasploit, The Penetration Tester’s Guide – A new book by Dave Kennedy (ReL1K), Devon Kearns (dookie), Jim O’Gorman (_Elwood_), and Mati Aharoni (muts). The book is released through No Starch Press.
The goals of the book are to provide a single point of reference for the Metasploit Framework which doesn’t quickly become outdated and to provide an in depth resource for penetration testers who wish to understand the Framework inside out. The book covers everything from Metasploit basics to fuzzing, exploit development, custom module creation, writing post exploitation modules and meterpreter kung-fu.
In addition to the Metasploit Framework, we cover toolkits that leverage the Framework such as the Social-Engineer Toolkit (SET) and Fast-Track. The book also integrates the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES) as the general methodology for performing penetration testing.
