If you’ve ever wanted to play around with Metasploit – the free pen test/exploitation toolkit – but you didn’t know where to start….well, here’s an interesting site I came across that hosts free trial versions of software known to be vulnerable to attack using Metasploit, etc..
Oh, if you need a quick primer, check out the following articles I’ve written on Metasploit as well:
Metasploit 3.1 updates improve Windows penetration testing
Metasploit 3.0 security testing tool – free easy and improved
Using Metasploit for real-world security testing
Metasploit: A penetration testing tool you shouldn’t be without
…and finally, this book on Metasploit that I contributed to (tech-edited a few chapters) has some good content:
Metasploit Toolkit for Penetration Testing, Exploit Development, and Vulnerability Research
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
