Metasploit Framework Open Source Nightly Installers
Metaploit framework installers are built nightly for those wanting to track the bleeding edge, or those who would like a simplified Metasploit framework setup experience. These packages are built for OS X, Windows and various Linux distributions, including a complete bundled Ruby environment and PostgreSQL database. The installers integrate with your system packaging nicely and are easy to add and remove.
Linux and OS X quick installation
The following script invocation will import the Rapid7 signing key and setup the package for all supported Linux and OS X systems:
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/rapid7/metasploit-omnibus/master/config/templates/metasploit-framework-wrappers/msfupdate.erb > msfinstall && \ chmod 755 msfinstall && \ ./msfinstall
These packages integrate into your OS's native package management and can either be updated with the
msfupdate command or using your preferred package manager. On Kali Linux systems, if your database has already been setup with
msfdb init, these packages will continue to use that database.
OS X graphical installation
The latest OS X installer package can also be downloaded directly here: https://osx.metasploit.com/metasploitframework-latest.pkg, with the last 10 builds archived at https://osx.metasploit.com/. Simply download and launch the installer to install Metaploit Framework with all of its dependencies. Once installed, initially launch msfconsole as
/opt/metasploit-framework/bin/msfconsole. A series of prompts will help you setup a database and add Metasploit to your local PATH. You can also follow the Linux instructions below to install in a single step.
Linux package details
Linux packages are built nightly for .deb (64-bit and 32-bit x86) and .rpm (64-bit x86) systems. Debian/Ubuntu packages are available at https://apt.metasploit.com and CentOS/Redhat/Fedora packages are located at https://rpm.metasploit.com.
The latest Windows installer is located here: https://windows.metasploit.com/metasploitframework-latest.msi, with the last 10 builds archived at https://windows.metasploit.com/. To install, simply download the .msi package, adjust your Antivirus as-needed to ignore c:\metasploit-framework, double-click and enjoy. The msfconsole command and all related tools will be added to the system %PATH% environment variable.
