Metasploit 3.2

The Metasploit Framework is a development platform for creating security tools and exploits. It's used by network security professionals to perform penetration tests, system administrators to verify patch installations, product vendors to perform regression testing, and security researchers world-wide.

Compare to Metasploit 3.0, in Metasploit 3.2, getting attack code onto a target machine will also be easier on Metasploit 3.2 with improvements to the Raw Packet Tools function. A new library call PacketFu is expected by Moore to achieve packet injection for both wired and wireless end points.It also provides improved support for exploiting multi-core CPU machines, which had been more difficult to attack with previous versions of Metasploit.

Metasploit is also able to take exploit code and weaponize it in an .EXE (executable file) that can be deployed by an attacker. Moore said the EXE template that created EXE attacks has been improved in Metasploit 3.2 in order to defeat AntiVirus vendor signature detection.
