Metasploit Megaprimer

When i attended the seminar in Surabaya, one of the speaker, Amien gave a quiz and the winner would get a Metasploit Megaprimer videos. Unfortunately, i didn't get it because the quiz was about analyzing an attack using Network Miner and Wireshark, but Network Miner was only available on Windows only. At that time, i never thought that it could be run under Wine, so i traced it using Wireshark alone at wits end

After coming back to Jogja, i tried to find what's so special about this videos? confused It seems that Amien was right. It is an interesting video and if you learn about security, this video is a must-watch. It tells you almost all information you need to know about Metasploit, starting from it's history, basic usage, until advanced techniques to use Metasploit. It's very valuable to me as it would be a good example when i wanted to teach CEH class next semester. It can also tell the students how advanced a tool can be and they really need to update and harden their system so that their system can't be compromised by Metasploit which is updated so frequently. It's a race between an exploit being developed in Metasploit and also a patch is being deployed on our system.
