Metasploit 101 This post is a quick run down of a talk that I gave at my local information security meetup to introduce the Metasploit Framework to those that have not used it before. Introduction So what is Metasploit? Metasploit is an exploitation framework with a collection of tools to help develop exploits and use them. It was created in 2003 by H D More. The Metasploit project was purchased by Rapid7 in 2009.
