Armitage 01.19.12 released: Pen Testing tools

Armitage is a graphical cyber attack management tool for Metasploit that visualizes your targets, recommends exploits, and exposes the advanced capabilities of the framework. Armitage aims to make Metasploit usable for security practitioners who understand hacking but don’t use Metasploit every day. If you want to learn Metasploit and grow into the advanced features, Armitage can help you.

change log for Armitage 01.19.12:
  • Data export now includes a sessions file. This lists all of the Metasploit sessions you had in your database. There’s some neat data here including which exploit was used, which payload, start time, and close time. You can calculate how much time you spent on your client’s boxes. Cool stuff.
  • Fixed a potential dead-lock caused by mouse enter/exit events firing code that required a lock. Nice landmine to defuse.
  • Fixed a weird condition with d-server detection. Sometimes (rarely) Armitage wouldn’t detect the d-server even when it’s present.
  • Added check to d-server allowing one lock per/client. Client won’t reobtain a lock until it lets it go. This prevents you from opening two shell tabs for a shell session in team mode.
  • Fixed an infinite loop condition when some Windows shell commands would return output with no newlines (e.g., net stop [some service]). Thanks Jesse for pointing me to this one.
  • Data export now includes a timeline file. This file documents all of the major engagement events seen by Armitage. Included with each of these events is the source ip of the attack system and the user who carried out the action (when teaming is setup).
  • Data export now exports timestamps with current timezone (not GMT)
  • Fixed a nasty bug that’s been with Armitage since the beginning! I wasn’t freeing edges properly in the graph view. If you had pivots setup in graph view and used Armitage long enough–eventually Armitage would slow down until the program became unusable. At least it’s fixed now.
  • Adjusted the d-server state identity hash combination algorithm to better avoid collissions.
  • Armitage now displays ‘shell session’ below a host if the host info is just the Windows shell banner.
