As seen on a bunch of mailing lists, metasploit 2.7 has been released. On a related note, maybe we’ll have to create a metasploit plugin for wicrawl, now that wi-fi exploits are coming to Metasploit. It’s on the list of thigns to do anyway, but this definitely makes it more interesting.
The Metasploit Framework is an advanced open-source exploit development platform. The 2.7 release includes three user interfaces, 157 exploits and 76 payloads.The Framework will run on any modern operating system that has a working Perl interpreter. The Windows installer includes a slimmed-down version of the Cygwin environment.
Windows users are encouraged to update as soon as possible. A number of improvements were made that should make the Windows experience a little less painful and a lot more reliable. All updates to 2.6 have been rolled into 2.7, along with some new exploits and minor features.
This release is available from the Metasploit.com web site:
– Unix: http://metasploit.com/tools/framework-2.7.tar.gz
– Win32: http://metasploit.com/tools/framework-2.7.exe
The latest version can be pulled directly from Subversion:
$ svn co http://metasploit.com/svn/framework2/trunk/

This may be the LAST 2.x version of the Metasploit Framework. All development resources are now being applied to version 3.0. More information about version 3.0 can be found online at:
Exploit modules designed for the 2.2 through 2.6 releases should maintain compatibility with 2.7. If you run into any problems using older modules with this release, please let us know.
