NitroSecurity and Rapid7 announced the pairing of NitroSecurity’s NitroView with Rapid7’s Metasploit Pro 4.0 solution, in order to enable security operations managers to identify and validate critical vulnerabilities that could lead to a data breach, and to prioritize their remediation efforts more effectively.
SecureState announced the release of the CDP tool, an additional module for the Metasploit Framework, this time for forging Cisco Discovery Protocol frames.
Metasploit brings an enhanced command-line feature set for increased proficiency and detailed PCI reports with pass/fail information for a view of compliance posture with PCI regulations. Metasploit Express and the free, open source Metasploit Framework also saw several improvements with this release.
Metasploit now enables security professionals to exploit Cisco devices, performs passive reconnaissance through traffic analysis, provides more exploits and evaluates an organization’s password security by brute forcing an ever increasing range of services. This latest release adds stealth features, exposing common flaws in IDS and IPS, and anti-virus threat detection.
Rapid7 announced that Metasploit Pro and Metasploit Express have achieved Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) compliance. CVE associates unique identifiers to security vulnerabilities and exposures to provide common names for publicly known problems.
