    Default metasploit v4.4.0-dev : search function not working fully

    Hi all,

    This is my machine: BackTrack 5 R2 Gnome 64 bit : Linux bt 3.2.6 x86_64 GNU/Linux : HDD installed
    metasploit v4.4.0-dev

    Ok Good news first: Metasploit works
    Bad News: search function in msfconsole does not work fully.
    Code:
    root@bt:~# msfconsole
    
    
           =[ metasploit v4.4.0-dev [core:4.4 api:1.0]
    + -- --=[ 894 exploits - 484 auxiliary - 150 post
    + -- --=[ 251 payloads - 28 encoders - 8 nops
           =[ svn r15571 updated today (2012.07.04)
    
    msf > search netapi
    
    msf >
    I am trying to search for string 'netapi' and the search function renders null. On closer inspection this is what I find.

    If I try to find shell_reverse_tcp it does find it. See the output below:

    Code:
    msf > search shell_reverse_tcp
    
    Matching Modules
    ================
    
       Name                                     Disclosure Date  Rank    Description
       ----                                     ---------------  ----    -----------
       payload/aix/ppc/shell_reverse_tcp                         normal  AIX Command Shell, Reverse TCP Inline
       payload/bsd/sparc/shell_reverse_tcp                       normal  BSD Command Shell, Reverse TCP Inline
    -----------clipped------------
       payload/windows/shell_reverse_tcp                         normal  Windows Command Shell, Reverse TCP Inline
       payload/windows/x64/shell_reverse_tcp                     normal  Windows x64 Command Shell, Reverse TCP Inline
    
    
    msf >
    So it seems to me that search function is searching the payload but NOT the exploits.

    Any idea anyone, please

    Regards

    N.B.:

    When I try to load this module it fails:
    Code:
    msf > use windows/smb/ms08_67_netapi
    [-] Failed to load module: windows/smb/ms08_67_netapi
    Something is wrong somewhere..

    In my case, one works, the other doesn't. I have two instances of BT running on two different virtual machines. I updated Metasploit on both version using msfupdate. Same revisions, one has a broken search function, the other doesn't.

    Are you saying in your broken version the search function does not work at all..

    It works partially, as you have described. Whereas on my other instance, everything works fine.

    I'm having the same issue. I don't think this is a BackTrack problem, but something broken in msfconsole. For what it's worth, the search functionality was working fine for me last week.

    I just ran msfupdate less than an hour ago, and the search problem is still present. Has anyone reported this issue on the Metasploit mailing list?
    If I could figure out how to scuba dive & hack at the same time, there would be nothing I couldn't do...

    I think you've made some typos. Try exploit/windows/smb/ms08_067_netapi. The tab completion in msfconsole finished the line at ms08
