New Features


Backup and Restore

Metasploit 4.11.6-2016022501 introduced the ability to back up and restore data in commercial editions of Metasploit. In the first release, restores were performed with a script. This week's release adds the ability to restore a backup directly from the UI. To restore a backup, go to Administration > Global Settings > Backups and click the Restore button for the backup you want to apply.




Change to Cert Directory Location

The path opt/metasploit/apps/pro/nginx/cert/ has been changed to opt/metasploit/nginx/cert/. Any certificates that you have in the old location needs to be moved to the new location.
