Learning to Hack
Ok well I am still new to back|track and getting used to all the tools. I just watched someones tutorial on just basic hacking. He use some tools that I was wondering about. I never really used metasploit before because I though it was mainly for destruction and thats not what I do. I think my idea's of what metasploit was are a little off, so could someone help me out. Basically what metaploit is is a big list of exploits that are regularly updated with exploits of gaining control of the target machine am I right? When you see Microsoft constaintly putting out new updates its because this program is exploited loop holes in common programs. Is metasploit used for other things that privilage escalation? How do you know what exploits to use on what machine? Thanks for the help.
