Video Description

This video delves into Metasploit payloads. It examines the components of a payload that is used to perform an exploit:

  • Modules - single or stagers (multiple).
  • Stagers - "stage" a connection between the Kali host and the target.
  • Stages - pieces of a payload downloaded by a stager. Used to build up a the connection.

Video Transcription

00:04
all right, so let's learn a little bit more about
00:07
what a payload is
00:09
When I said the word payload, Really? All that's mean. All that really means to you is that it's a way to perform an exploit. So it's an exploit module,
00:18
all right, that's the way to think about. That's the
00:21
the medicine terminology, if you will,
00:24
and we have
00:26
different types of models. We have singles,
00:30
stagers and stay jets.
00:33
A single module is one that's just stand alone. It's basically self contained,
00:38
and it doesn't need any other components.
00:44
But if we have a stager, a stager, what that's doing is trying to stage a connection between the
00:51
Callie or your medicine. What instance and the victim machine.
00:56
And so we think about it as a way to kind of make the connection as part of the overall exploit.
01:03
Lastly, we have stage as which are the pieces of the payload that air downloaded by the stagers themselves. So if I'm building a network connection, reverse TCP,
01:15
for instance, or interpreter shell or http connection,
01:19
that's what the stage or does what the stages are the individual pieces that are needed to build that connection up
