The Metasploit RPC api for Node.js

Getting started


This will install the cli in your system.

npm install -g msfrpc

This will add the msfrpc module to your Node.js project.

npm install --save msfrpc

Using the cli

msfrpc <URI>

URI example: https://msfUser:123456@localhost:55553

Using the api

All msfrpc methods are grouped in the following "method groups":

  • Auth
  • Base
  • Console
  • Core
  • Db
  • Job
  • Module
  • Plugin
  • Session

To call a msfrpc, use the following pattern:

msfrpc.<method group>.<method name (camel case)>([arguments]);

All methods returns Promises.

Please note that we don't pass tokens to the methods. Tokens are added automatically by MsfRpc.

Here is an example:

const MsfRpc = require('msfrpc');

const msfrpcUri = 'https://msfUser:123456@localhost:55553';
const msfrpc = new MsfRpc(msfrpcUri);

console.log(`Connecting to ${msfrpcUri}`);
msfrpc.connect().then(() => {
  return msfrpc.core.version().then((res) => {
    console.log(`Metasploit Framework version ${res.version}`);
  }).then(() => {
    const keyword = 'windows';
    console.log(`Search modules containing "${keyword}". This may take a few seconds...`);
    return => {
      console.log(`Found the ${modules.length} modules for "${keyword}":`);
      modules.forEach((module) => {
        console.log('=========', module.fullname);
        console.log('  Name',;
        console.log('  Type', module.type);
        console.log('  Rank', module.rank);
        if(module.disclosuredate) {
          console.log('  Date', module.disclosuredate);

In the example, we:

  • Connect to the msfrpc server
  • Obtain and print the Metasploit Version
  • Find and print all modules containing a given keyword
