Installing Metasploit Framework on Ubuntu

Recently, I had to install Metasploit Framework on Ubuntu. I thought I would document the instructions here. Be sure to check the downloads page on the Metasploit website (http://www.metasploit.com) to get the current version. At the time of this blog the latest version was 3.5.0.

  1. wget http://updates.metasploit.com/data/releases/framework-3.5.0.tar.bz2
  2. bunzip2 framework-3.5.0.tar.bz2
  3. tar xvf framework-3.5.0.tar
  4. sudo cp -a msf3 /opt/msf3
  5. sudo ln -sf /opt/msf3/msf* /usr/local/bin/
  6. sudo svn update /opt/msf3/
  7. sudo crontab -e -u root # Enter "1 * * * * /usr/bin/svn update  /opt/msf3/ >> /var/log/msf3update.log 2>&1"
