In the previous two parts (part 1, part 2) of this article series we discussed the agility and ease of usage of the Metasploit Framework in an end-user environment. Moving further we will cover additional usage details and provide a brief insight of the MSF from a developer's perspective. Version 2.2 of the Framework was released in August 2004, and its immense potential was showcased at the Blackhat 2004 and Defcon 12 security conferences, which witnessed a jam-packed house during presentations by HD Moore and Spoonm. The previous article discussed the primary interface to the MSF; we will now continue the discussion by looking at other interfaces present in the Framework. Then we will move on to cover the latest features available in version 2.2. Finally, we will conclude the article by providing a brief introduction to the exploit development process provided in the Framework. This includes features such as VNC DLL injection and others.

    2. Other User Interfaces

    The Metasploit Framework support three interfaces. The first interface, msfconsole, was covered extensively in part two of this article series. The two other interfaces, msfcli and msfweb are just as powerful and each plays an important role in different scenarios.
