Video Transcription
00:04
Hello, everyone. Dean Pompilio here. Hope you're enjoying the medicine, of course.
00:08
Finally getting to our very last module. What? We're going to be exploring the gooey interfaces
00:15
that are available for mass ploy.
00:18
So we'll spend some time
00:20
looking at what you can do with you Municipal Community Edition. And we'll also have a look at Armitage.
00:28
All right, first of all,
00:30
community addition, this is not included with Callie. So you do have to go to the Rapid seven website
00:37
to download this.
00:38
It's not not very complex process, really.
00:42
Eyes goto products. Go to med exploit
00:52
and your downs download the community edition. Here.
00:55
You do have to You
00:59
go through a registration process and you'll get a, uh, activation code email to you.
01:04
So I'm just gonna skip that portion of it,
01:08
huh?
01:12
Since I've already done that, we can just go here and
01:15
you should end up with a file like this in your downloads directory. So my latest Lennox X 64 installer.
01:29
So I'm gonna go ahead and run. The installer
01:37
asks you to accept license agreement. Pretty, pretty straightforward stuff.
01:41
Optimus Boy is the default folder. It's probably a good idea to use this instead of putting an end user share because that's where the medicine Lloyd framework exists. And you don't want these
01:51
to directories
01:53
in the same place is gonna have the up medicine Boyd as a for user installed software.
02:06
Okay,
02:10
That's probably because I had this previously installed,
02:17
so I'm gonna go ahead and remove that folder.
02:22
Why don't you take care of the problem?
02:23
Here we go. All right.
02:25
I don't want to start medicine, please. Of service. I'm gonna say yes to that. For convenience purposes,
02:31
disable the anti virus and fireball for obvious reasons. You may need to do this to get certain exploits to work and so on. You have to pick through that those requirements when you get to them.
02:43
Standard port 37. 90.
02:46
Also, I'm gonna leave the defaults for the server name,
02:51
trusting the certificate,
02:53
and then the install begins.
02:57
Ah, this is gonna take a few minutes. I'm gonna go ahead, install our paws rather ambles. Start back up once that step completes.
03:04
Okay, So the installations almost finished, and we're just waiting for medicine. Like to actually start up,
03:10
so it's gonna start up. Some service is we'll be listening on for 37 90 as I showed earlier s. So that finally finished.
03:20
I'll go ahead and click the finish button
03:30
and we'll see if it launches the page.
03:37
All right. That didn't didn't launch the page. That's okay.
03:43
I can go to
03:45
my local host port 37 90.
03:51
You do have to accept the certificates. Since it is self signed. You can certainly replace this with 1/3 party certificate at some point if you wish.
04:01
Gun confirmed this security exception.
04:09
All right, Now we get to your log in info.
04:13
I'm gonna create an account called Admin
04:24
Thrust. This information here is optional. Some believe that away.
04:29
Leave that alone. Rather.
04:30
All right, so here I have to enter my product. He
04:33
as I mentioned you get this email to you someone a pause year end up,
04:39
come back when that part's done. A lot of the activations finished.
04:43
And one thing that's always good to do
04:46
when you're installing. Ah, the community Titian is go to your administration tab
04:53
and click on software updates.
04:57
You can check for updates. Most likely there's gonna be something Here. We see it down. Junior exploit modules at a new auxiliary and post exploit modules
05:08
to compete in, see what that is.
05:10
See what actually got included?
05:14
Could be something interesting here. Projects. Sonar Don't really know anything about that. But maybe
05:19
you exploit mountains for Andrew Weed dealing routers.
05:26
Bunch of boat fixes.
05:28
So some good info to explore.
05:30
But we're gonna go ahead and just install those updates.
05:33
This will also take several minutes, someone a pause.
