The book covers the essentials of using Metasploit with other associated tools (SET and Fast-Track). If the reader is expecting to turn into a penetration tester expert by reading this book then I will say that the prospects are off beam. The author has managed to put in a single book the approach used for penetration testing, known as PTES (Penetration Testing Execution Standard) and described as the redefined approach for penetration testing and a broad overview of the Metasploit framework, how it works, how is composed and how you can control the power of using this framework to make alterations in diverse circumstances or scenarios.
The author starts out the book by describing the PTES approach and also referring the user to the penetration standard organization website in order to get more info (for people that are new in penetration testing).The information gathering process, in this book, covers the ID of the target and the detection of different applications or possible attack routes. In the very beginning of the book, in chapter two, the author give brief details how to import databases from other tools such as vulnerability scanners in order to conduct exploits with some kind of automation. Some people will think of autopen option in Metasploit, this option is no longer available to any further extent in the framework (the framework changes every time). I really don’t know the reason why. But, as to access hosts and related info from Nessus, Nexpose, and nmap will be very useful for the penetration tester.
To sum up, the book is a good one for novices and to understand what the Metasploit framework really is and how you can use it. Most of the material can be found in the project website but not at the same detail level as the book. The book will demonstrate you the fundamentals of the framework, don’t suppose to become an expert hereafter. The basis will help you to understand how to control the functionality of the tool and how to write your own code, workaround some complications in the process and most of all buoy up people to contribute to the tool. There are some things that the author takes up that the reader should know and for that reason some chapters can become perplexing. But, take the references and give yourself the opportunity to practice with the tool and certainly in the future you will be able to to port exploits from other sources and develop your own code.
