As a side note, although metasploit is awesome and extremely capable, I need to keep in mind that some of the exams that I’ll be taking do not allow the use of metasploit. Therefore, if I find exploits, and know their names, it helps me learn if I do a google on that name and try to run the exploit through code. This also helps me to learn about what the exploits do because the code is open source. With metasploit, the modules do not reveal their code, at least not without research, and therefore, everything that happens on the screen is pretty much automatic.
So this was an extremely fun day. By now, you probably know that the Space-X launch was scrubbed, but it was absolutely a blast watching that, and playing with metasploit at the same time. What a great afternoon.
