List of Metasploit Exploits/Modules for Metasploitable3 Vulnerable Machine

Metasploitable3 is another free VM that allows you to simulate attacks with one of the most popular exploitation framework i.e. Metasploit Framework.

Metasploitable3 is a VM that is built from the ground up with a large amount of security vulnerabilities. It is intended to be used as a target for testing exploits with metasploit.

Previous versions of Metasploitable were distributed as a VM snapshot where everything was set up and saved in that state. Metasploitable 3 introduces a new approach: dynamically building the VM image. It utilizes Packer, Vagrant, and a ton of scripts to go from nothing to a fully functional, exploitable VM within minutes.

Here is the list of all vulnerable Applications and Services which you can easily exploit with the help of MSF.
