Beginners Guide To Armitage And How To Use It In Kali Linux


Armitage is a graphical user interface for the Metasploit Framework. At first glance, it may seem that Armitage is just a pretty front-end on top of Metasploit. That’s not quite true. Armitage is a scriptable red team collaboration tool. It has a server component to allow a team of hackers to share their accesses to compromised hosts. This is essentially a GUI way of using metasploit/meterpreter I hope you find it useful as many people like to use GUI rather than cmd line.

Lets get started,

When the scan is complete expand the exploit > windows > smb and double click the ms08_67_netapi
