How can I know which exploits will work, what a system is vulnerable to with metasploit. I'm pratcing these on my home machines. Thanks.
I agree... a good way is to try out some tutorials that hold interest to you.
If possible watch good video tutorials and follow a transcript.
Some may work... some won't. But you'll learn a good few things along the way.
I find repetition the best way to learn. That and trying to understand why they work the way they do.
A lot of practice and and a lot of theory. It takes time to learn.
I'm still in the beginning stages but the main thing is I'm enjoying it.
There's also good books out there that one should read and read and read.
Knowledge and understanding is the key to unlocking one's potential.

If your looking for a quick taste, then search for information about db_autopwn. Again like everyone else has said a little research goes a long way, and its better to fully understand it rather than just use it. But if a quick fix is what your after db_autopwn should do the trick. Just make sure you are practicing on something that is easily exploitable, like XP with no patches rather than a fully patched XPSP2 system.
Or maybe just watching the videos on there website will convince you to do some solid research. metasploit.com/framework/gallery
Is there a complete guide/documentation/howto thats in somewhat simple terms to the whole process? I don't mind reading. Thanks for the replies.
Try googling something obvious like "security testing methodology" or "penetration testing methodology", it's not rocket science there's lots of info available you just have to look.Is there a complete guide/documentation/howto thats in somewhat simple terms to the whole process?
He said "books"...plural not singular. Again, there are lots of them you just have to go looking. There are lots of threads here that contain information on books and other getting started type material. Try doing a search for "books" or "reading material" etc.Thanks, what book is that?Originally Posted by .lonewolf
I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.
I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
