Metasploit 4.3 features 33 new exploits, 20 new auxiliary modules, 11 new post-exploitation modules, 4 new payloads, updated dependencies, and a couple new features for Metasploit Pro.


Metasploit 4.3 ships with Ruby 1.9.3-p124, Rails 3.2.2, Java SE 7u3, and PostgreSQL 9.1.


The new features in Metasploit Pro are task chains and report e-mails. Task chains automate the execution of tasks and enable you to define a schedule for the tasks to follow. The new e-mail option for the reports tasks provide the ability to automatically send a copy of a report to a list of e-mail addresses after Metasploit Pro generates it.


Notable new modules that have been added since Metasploit 4.2 include SCADA modules, Java exploit, Squid proxy pivoting module, RDP exploit, Flash exploit, and many more.
