Module: Msf::Exploit::Brute

Defined in:
lib/msf/core/exploit/brute.rb

Overview

This modules provides a target-aware brute-forcing wrapper. It implements the exploit method and calls exploit_brute with target supplied information. If the selected target is not a bruteforce target, then single_exploit is called.

Instance Method Details

#brute_exploit(addrs) ⇒ Object

This routine is called once per brute force iteration. The addresses parameter is a hash of addresses that are incremented each iteration and are derived from the target's bruteforce information or the module's datastore in case they are being overriden.

def brute_exploit(addrs)
end

#brute_wait(delay) ⇒ Object

Waits for the provide delay.

def brute_wait(delay)
  sleep(delay)
end

#exploitObject

Entry point for initiating an exploit. This module wrappers the exploit method and determines whether or not the selected target supports brute force. If it does, it does some special things and wraps the brute forcing logic.
