Browser Exploitation Framework LiveCD
Posted on 14 January 2013.
The Browser Exploitation Framework (BeEF) is a penetration testing tool that focuses on the web browser.


BeEF allows penetration testers to assess the actual security posture of a target environment by using client-side attack vectors. Unlike other security frameworks, BeEF looks past the hardened network perimeter and client system, and examines exploitability within the context of the one open door: the web browser.

BeEF will hook one or more web browsers and use them as beachheads for launching directed command modules and further attacks against the system from within the browser context.

The LiveCD includes a working install or BeEF, Metasploit and sqlmap. It is based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and is configured to use Ruby 1.9.3p194. It was generated using Remastersys and it's dist command.
