This video covers the basics of launching exploits from Metasploit Community Edition. The exploits were discovered in a previous step both with Nexpose and Nessus. In the case of Nessus the results were exported as a .Nessus file then imported into Metasploit Community Edition. This video picks up right after the vulnerabilities are discovered and imported.
nmap reporting is excellent with the XML option but this is not used in a lot of cases. The XML output from nmap can be imported into other tools such as the Metasploit Community Edition (Import button), metasploit DB, and other tools. Also, the XML format can be opened in a web browser to produce a well-formatted report suitible for attachment to a pen-test.
This video covers accessing a web site that is normally unreachable from our Backtrack 5 box. However, after gaining a session on a third box, we forward our web browser through the compromised host in order to browse the website. The port forwarding is done via a meterpreter session on the compromised host. After setting up the port forward, the browser is able to use the compromised host as a relay (almost like a web proxy) in order to browse to the "internal" web application.
In previous versions of Metasploit it was possible to run "db_autopwn -t -x" in the msfcomsole in order to have metasploit guess the best exploits for a given vulnerability.
This video looks at alternative functionality for the depreciated "db_autopwn -t -x" option in older versions of Metasploit's msfconsole. Metasploit Community Edition has similar exploit analysis functionality accessible via the web based GUI.
This video shows how to have the hashdump post exploitation module automatically populate the creds table in the metasploit database, then export the credentials to a file suitible to pass to the john the ripper tool in order to audit the passwords.
