Metasploit on Kasm Workspaces

Penetration Testing Command & Control in a Kasm Workspaces for Covert Communication Channel via Reverse Shell over ngrok for Meterpreter Session.

MCLEAN, VA, USA, February 5, 2024 / — Kasm Technologies announced a training video demonstrating on-demand pen-testing and vulnerability assessment powered by Metasploit, an open-source phishing framework. These workspaces are detailed in a new video released in cooperation with the Tech Raj YouTube channel.

Metasploit is an open-source project for security professionals used to discover and exploit vulnerabilities using the Metasploit Framework (MSF) collection of exploit tools, payloads, and listeners that facilitate the penetration testing process. Metasploit provides users with the resources to perform security assessments, develop and execute exploit code against a remote target machine, and audit systems.

Using Metasploit for Command & Control (C2) purposes allows the attacker to establish a covert communication channel back to the attacking machine through the use of payloads, which can be configured to create a reverse shell or meterpreter session, giving the attacker remote control over the compromised system. The meterpreter payload is particularly powerful for C2, offering extensive control and interaction capabilities, such as file system manipulation, capturing keystrokes, and webcam control.

Kasm Workspaces, with its containerized approach to delivering browser-based access to desktops, applications, and web services, offers a compelling solution for deploying a Metasploit server in a secure, isolated, and scalable manner. By utilizing Kasm Workspaces, cybersecurity professionals can rapidly spin up instances of Metasploit within Docker containers, ensuring that each session is contained in a secure environment that is segregated from the host system and other workloads. This isolation minimizes the risk of cross-contamination or leakage of sensitive data between sessions, enhancing operational security.

Moreover, Kasm’s ability to provide access from any web browser facilitates ease of use and flexibility, allowing users to interact with their Metasploit server from virtually anywhere, without the need for complex VPN setups or direct network access. This approach not only streamlines the process of conducting penetration tests and security assessments but also supports collaboration among security teams by enabling them to access shared tools and resources securely and efficiently.

Since you are using Kali Linux as a docker container you will not be able to receive inbound connections from the internet. However, it is very important for your C&C server to be available on the Internet to receive connections from the targets. To fix this, you can use ngrok to create a secure tunnel from the Internet to your local network interface. This capability allows you to have a C2 server in cloud-hosted Kasm Workspaces instance for your Metasploit cybersecurity pentesting.
