You will have a solid understanding of the Metasploit framework and how to work around its limitations.

What you'll learn

You'll also have the right frame of mind to carry out penetration tests efficiently and effectively.


You should know the basic commands of the Linux command line and little bit of system administration.

A 64 bit PC with 8 GB or RAM and 140GB of free hard drive space, at least an i3 core processor.

Alternatively you could install the vulnerable virtual machine on another PC in your home network and use Kali on your main PC with a light-weight desktop environment like XFCE.


This course will cover all of the fundamental aspects of the Metasploit framework, tying a subset of the phases of the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES) methodology to the course structure.

These will be specifically information gathering, vulnerability assessment, exploitation and post-exploitation.

The course also goes beyond the basics by dealing with social eeering, privilege escalation, antivirus evasion, persistent backdoors, trojanizing executable files, remote desktop, web penetration testing, port forwarded reverse shells, the Beef-XSS Framework, event log management.

To follow this course you will need to be confident using generic software programs, know the basics of the Linux command line and a little of system administration.

If something isn't clear or doesn't work on your system you can always hit me up and we'll solve the problem.

Concerning hardware requirements: a host machine with at least 8 GB of RAM with a moderately fast processor, 70 GB of hard-drive space for the vulnerable virtual machine and other 30GB for the Kali VM is a good setup to have, but not mandatory: you can also alternatively install the vulnerable machine on another PC in your home network and work with Kali on your main machine.

The course is laid out in 7 main sections:

Section 1: setup of our environment and introduction to the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES), which is a state of art methodology to carry out a penetration test. Other Metasploit variants like the Metasploit framework on Windows, the Metasploit community edition and Aage will be covered.

Section 2: fundamental commands of Metasploit and how it works, how to automate repetitive tasks, how to run exploits and Metasploit modules.

Section 3: information gathering on the target machine with nmap and the other tools available in Metasploit to check which services are installed and effectively map the the attack surface.

Section 4: vulnerability assessment. We'll check which of the services fingerprinted are likely to be vulnerable. We'll learn how to install the Nessus vulnerability scanner and integrate it with Metasploit to populate its workspace.

Section 5: finally exploit of seven Metasploitable3 services using Metasploit exclusively, web penetration testing will also be covered.

Section 6: exploiting services via Social Eeering. We'll mainly create vectors for Social Eeering engagements, unsuspecting payloads for the victim to execute on their machine to obtain remote command execution. We'll create trojanized files, we'll greatly lower the antivirus detection rate and we'll use the Beef-XSS Framework together with Metasploit to deliver more complex attacks.

Section 7: monitoring the user on his machine, logging his keyboard activity, perfog privilege escalation, generating persistent backdoors and log management.

Section 8: the course outro and credits.

Who this course is for:

Anyone interested in penetration testing who would like to learn the Metasploit Framework inside out and learn how it can be integrated with other pentesting tools.
