Exploit Development

Writing Exploits in Metasploit

Exploit Development in the Metasploit Framework

Next, we are going to cover one of the most well known and popular aspects of the Metasploit Framework, exploit development. In this section, we are going to show how utilizing the Framework for exploit development allows you to concentrate on what is unique about the exploit, and makes other matters such as payload, encoding, nop generation, and so on just a matter of infrastructure.

Due to the sheer number of exploits currently available in Metasploit, there is a very good chance that there is already a module that you can simply edit for your own purposes during exploit development. To make exploit development easier, Metasploit includes a sample exploit that you can modify. You can find it under ‘documentation/samples/modules/exploits/‘.
