EDIT: Meanwhile for Metasploitable3 I tried the download with the virtualbox version (that one includes only 1 Drive File and its also a *.vmdk). That one was convertible with the same syntax i used for V2. Looks like both virtualmachines are running within utm. But Kali Linux 2022-04 runs within vmware fusion right now. Do you recommend to change that (perhaps also via converting the Vmware Disk) - or isn't that a problem?

metasploitable download 2

This command will take a while to complete because first it will download a Windows 2008 evaluation copy from the Microsoft website. When the download is finished, the script will continue to setup the virtual machine in Virtualbox and install Windows 2008 on the virtual machine. The entire process will take anywhere from 30-60 minutes. This depends on the configuration of your host machine and the speed of your internet connection. When the script is finished the output looks as following:

All steps seemed to go without problem until I go to start the virtual machine. I get two VirtualBox Errors that say: Failed to open a session for the virtual machine metasploitable3_default_1481161588202_8101. The VM session was aborted. Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005) Component: SessionMachine Interface: ISession 7844aa05-b02e-4cdd-a04f-ade4a762e6b7 AND Failed to open a session for the virtual machine metasploitable3_default_1481161588202_8101. Callee RC: E_FAIL (0x80004005) Any idea what could have went wrong? All steps seemed to go well I had no errors until this point.

In this article, I will take you through the steps to install metasploitable 2 in VirtualBox using 4 Easy Steps. Metasploitable 2 is an intentionally vulnerable Ubuntu based Linux Virtual Machine designed to provide a test environment for performing penetration testing and security analysis. It is very much suitable for testing common Vulnerabilities. Metasploitable 2 VM is compatible with VMware, VirtualBox and other famous virtualization platforms. Here we are going to install Metasploitable 2 Virtual Machine(VM) in VirtualBox.

In the Hard disk section, instead of creating a new virtual hard disk you need to select Use an existing virtual hard disk file option and then browse to the location where you extracted metasploitable 2 files. There you need to select and add the Metasploitable 2 VMDK file as shown below. Then click on Create to finish the VM creation.

This is my question/problem. I have a single subnet on my network that seems to be having problems downloading updates from metasploit. Browsing to the metasploit website and downloading the update will give an error stating "Installation failed: Signature failure". The research we've done and the feedback we've been given by Rapid7 is explaining this error is due to a firewall configuration. The other problem is when we attempt to download the file, I believe from and direct link, it's insanely slow. It's about 120 Mb file and it says the download will take about 14 days.

A couple of things to know. This is the only problem download this user and subnet is experiencing, that we are aware of. I am on a different subnet and my direct download is fine, it takes just a couple of minutes to download. The firewall has a rule to allow all from untrust to trust. We are using a PA500. At this point I am not sure what more I can do to verify and confirm that the firewall is not the problem. What steps can I take to continue to troubleshooting this to figure out the firewall is really the culprit or not? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi..Please check link speed & duplex for mismatch on the Ethernet interface of the PA device. Also, check to see if there's a QoS policy that may be controlling this traffic. If the user is on the trust zone and the download server is on the untrust zone, the policy should be to allow trust --> untrust for the download request. Thanks.

rmonvon, thank you for the quick reply. I've checked the speed & duplex settings on the PA interface and compared it to the interface it's connected to and they match at 1 Gig Full. This is the only site/download we are having issues with so I don't believe that a mismatch speed/duplex setting is the problem. I also checked QoS policies. There are just a few for some websites but not the one we are browsing to and the policy is for any source IP > any destination IP. With this setting I should have the same problem too since I'm on a different subnet but I don't. It looks like we have URL licensing but I can't seem to get the URL filtering to pull any data. Is it possible this could be an issue? Would there be anything else that could be causing the problem?

Can you try logging into that PC as yourself and test the download, and try the download from a different browser. Maybe there's something wrong with the user's desktop/browser like caching on that browser setting.

rmonvon, to answer your question, I have tried from several different browsers. Many of them fail immediately when starting the download. Safari was successful as far as continuing the download but what should be a few minute download is expected to take 2 days at this point (and it will get longer). Thanks again.

Thank you for the help and information. I also apologize for the delayed response. We were able to find out that the download was actually stopping which is why the download time kept increasing. After some digging and looking into the threat logs we realized that the attempted download was being blocked due to a virus threat. We had to create a few exceptions to allow the download to continue. I believe the PA incorrectly identified information in the signature or the packets as potentially dangerous and flagged it as such. After making the exceptions the download was successful. Thanks again.

I just setup Metasploitable 2 on VMware Fusion. I downloaded the image from here. I've booted it up and everything and can navigate around but would like to run a apt-get install update and possible be able to install additional packages through using the apt-get function later on if I need too. However, it's not letting me run the command. Here are a few examples of what i'm talking about.

If you absolutely must get packages, I'd recommend working out what version of ubuntu they use as a base and either downloading the packages manually, or adding the repos, but using pinning to prevent the system from auto-updating like so.

  • New Virtual Machine WizardInstructionsPlace the following link in the address bar.

  • Click on the Save File radio button

  • Click on the OK Button

  • Uncompress the metasploitable VMInstructionsNavigate to where you downloaded the metasploitable VMIn my case, I saved it to an external USB hard drive.

  • Right Click on metasploitable

  • Click on Extract All...

  • Extract the metasploitable VMInstructionsExtract the metasploitable VM to your desired locationIn my case, I extracted it to an external USB hard drive.

  • Click the Extract Button

  • View the RepositoriesInstructionsgrep -v "^#" sources.list head -20

  • Notes(FYI)grep is a utility that allows you to search for strings (and much more) in a file.

  • In (grep -v "^#"), the (-v) is used to ignore lines that start with (^) the number sign (#).

  • sources.list is the file that I am searching.

  • The pipe () is used to add on an additional command.

  • head -20, displays the first 20 lines.

  • Comment Out the RepositoriesInstructionssed -i 's/.*/#&/g' /etc/apt/sources.list

  • grep -v "^#" sources.list wc -lWhere there "-l" is a lower case L.

  • tail -5 sources.list

  • Notes(FYI)sed, is a stream editor for filtering and transforming text.sed -i, is an in-place update to the file (sources.list).

  • In ('s/.*/#&/g'), the (s) is a substitution operator.

  • In ('s/.*/#&/g'), the (.) matches one character, but not a newline.

  • In ('s/.*/#&/g'), the (*) matches zero or more characters.

  • In ('s/.*/#&/g'), the (#) is the character that I want to place in front of every line that starts with a character.

  • In ('s/.*/#&/g'), the (&) saves the search string so it can be remembered in the replacement string.

  • In ('s/.*/#&/g'), the (g) is as global substitution operator.

  • In summary, place a "#" sign in the starting position of each line.

  • wc, means to print a newline, word, and/or byte counts for each file.wc -l, means to count the number of lines.

  • In (grep -v "^#"), the (-v) is used to ignore lines that start with (^) the number sign (#).

  • In summary, count the number of lines that do NOT start with a (#) character,,, and the result is 0,,, which was the goal.

  • Get Links to Old Patch RepositoryInstructionscd /etc/apt

  • wget _TOOLS/METASPLOITABLE/EXPLOIT/lesson1/deb.txt

  • cat deb.txt

  • Notes(FYI)The deb.txt file contains links to the old Ubuntu Patch Repository.

  • Append Old Patch Repository to sources.listInstructionsls -l sources.list

  • ls -l deb.txt

  • cat deb.txt>> sources.list

  • tail -5 sources.list

  • Notes(FYI)We are using (cat) and the append operator (>>) to add the contents of the deb.txt file onto the end of the sources.list file.

  • Update the Apt Package RepositoryInstructionsapt-get update

  • Notes(FYI)apt-get update downloads the package lists from the repositories and "updates" them to get information on the newest versions of packages and their dependencies.

  • Install Linux HeadersInstructionsapt-get install linux-headers-2.6.24-16-server

  • Do you want to continue [Y/n]? Y

  • Notes(FYI)Header files in the Linux kernel are used for two purposes: (1) to define interfaces between components of the kernel, and (2) to define interfaces between the kernel and user space.

  • Install ZipInstructionsapt-get install zip

  • Notes(FYI)zip is a compression and file packaging utility.

  • Section 5: Install Lime ForensicsDownload Lime ForensicsInstructionscd /var/tmp

  • wget -forensics-1.1-r17.tar.gz

  • Untar and Make LimeInstructionstar zxvf lime*.tar.gz

  • cd src/

  • make

  • Notes(FYI)In this case, the tar program is used to unzip(z), and verbosely(v)extract(x) the file(f) lime*.tar.gz.

  • make is a utility for building and maintaining groups of programs (and other types of files) from source code. The purpose of the make utility is to determine automatically which pieces of a large program need to be re-compiled, and issue the commands necessary to recompile them.
