"FAR TOO LIMITED IN COMMUNITY EDITION, features absent"

December 24, 2012  |  By Jheckman5

 |  Version: Metasploit 4.1.2

Pros

Nothing really, interface is nice and organized.

Cons

1. Community edition is nothing more than a glorified nmap tool, i can download nmap for free and i don't need a serial key to use it.

2. No advanced features are included in community edition so i am unable to test it out to see if i even like it, again 220 mb of space is too much for a glorified nmap.

3. Using Wireshark, Zenmap and a few other choice freeware tools i can probably duplicate what metasploit does and i would learn more while doing it. Not including the actual exploits which i am sure freeware versions can be found if i look hard enough.

4. pradameinhoff is way off on his review, this is a bad way to learn this stuff when there are far superior tools available that offer a more upfront functionality without demanding 3000 in cash to be able to actually use it.

Sorry but as of now i hate metasploit and I'm going to stick with what my instructor recommends. After all the only good way to learn this stuff is to use the real solid tools that are actually time tested.

Summary

My advice is to stear away until they reconsider making the community edition more useable for the average folk.
