    Very happy to be able to bring you this article. I’ll leave it at that.

    Thanks Raphael. Hopefully this isn’t the last time.

    Permanent link: [Article]-Tutorial: Hacking Linux with Armitage

    By Raphael Mudge, Armitage Creator

    Metasploit is a popular exploitation framework that has seen plenty of Armitage, a new GUI for Metasploit built around the hacking process. Today, I will show you how to use Armitage to scan a Linux host, find the right exploit, exploit the host, and handle post-exploitation. By following this process, you will learn how to use Armitage and Metasploit in your own work.

    The target we will use is the Metasploitable Linux virtual machine. Metasploitable contains several vulnerabilities making it a safe, and, dare I say ethical, training ground for future penetration testers.

    Read the Armitage documentation to get Armitage running. Through the rest of this article, I will assume that you have Metasploitable running, Armitage is ready, and that you have downloaded this Python script that we will use later.  Let’s get to work.

    Enjoy and as always share your thoughts,

    Wondered when Ralph might post this.  From the time I’ve spent with it in the labs, so far, I like it.  Looking forward to what he adds to it, next.
