What Offensive Security and the security community has created here is truly an information security work of art and the fact that all of this is for charity, makes it especially heartwarming.

The long awaited course entitled Metasploit Unleashed has been released today from the online Information Security training experts, Offensive Security. From the time when Metasploit was released in 2003, it has become one of the single most useful information security tool freely available to security professionals today.
From a wide array of commercial grade exploits and an extensive exploit development environment, all the way to network information gathering tools and web vulnerability plug-ins. The Metasploit Framework (MSF) provides a truly impressive environment for IT security Professionals. The MSF is far more than just a collection of exploits - it's an infrastructure that one can build upon and utilize for custom needs. This allows the user to concentrate on their unique environment, and not have to reinvent the wheel.
However, for a long time there has been a gap in good, approachable and affordable information security training for the Metasploit Framework. With little to no resources, it was too easy to overlook many of the strong and powerful features that this tool provides. That is all about to change with the introduction of this new free online information security training course.
Offensive Security is supporting this free course with the first official certification for Metasploit and videos that can be optionally purchased. All proceeds from this will be given to Hackers for Charity to help underprivileged children in East Africa. Through a heart-warming effort by several security professionals, we are proud to present the most complete and in-depth open course about the Metasploit Framework.
Chris Hadnagy, lead social engineer from social-engineer.org says, "What Offensive Security and the security community has created here is truly an information security work of art and the fact that all of this is for charity, makes it especially heartwarming."
This course will cover from the basics of MSF usage, client side attacks, social engineering attacks, egghunter mixins, extending the framework and much more. The course walks the student from setting up the lab right down to performing every exploit and truly Mastering the Framework. It will prove to change the way people view the Metasploit Framework.
