soooo… I was trying to exploit pc that was on my network with armitage and when I did the scan and used “Find Attacks” that did nothing and I wasn’t able to attack that device (I’m using linux debian on VirtualBox, with usb wifi adapter), any ideas how can I fix that?
Any error messages or please provideall info you can.
(I will explain this by explaining every step I take):
- when I open armitage I’m not changing anything in “connect…” window even though that my ip is diffrent than “Host”, and I leave port as it was (55553) [that might be the problem I think]
- I click connect, and start a RCP server
- in window “progress” it tells “java.net.ConnectionException: Connection Refused” but I’m waiting for armitage to open anyway
4 )I scan my network for all devices (Intense scan) and It shows them all
5 ) I click on “Find attacks” and it immediately shows “attack analysis complete You will see an ‘attack’ menu attached to each host in the Targers window. Happy hunting!” but when I right click on one of devices the “attack” menu isn’t there…
( I know you maybe will find very funny mistakes here, but I’m sorry I’m really a beginner in Kali linux tools )
@Shad0w It is an issue with Armitage after updating the Kali distro. It is an open bug but I have found a temp solution. Click the Armitage tab. Then click “Set Exploit Rank”. Then set it to Poor. Now that should work for the time being. I would like to suggest that you get familiar with the Metasploit shell an modules. Armitage is very buggy and unstable for a lot of people.
I think this will help many people, also who have similar problems with Armitage. https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2391017
- you don’t even know how much I appreciate your answers
- metasploit shell works like armitage (works only on the same network) or It’s like payloads in msfconsole (can work on devices that are on diffrent network)?
@Shad0w Both work with Lan/Wan Locally and remotely if that makes better since. If you are on wireless you need to port-forward through your router to be able to preform attacks against targets outside of your network.
And… Could you tell me how to do that? I just want to learn how to get access to other devices… I tried payloads but that didn’t work well, and Armitage but since I discovered how buggy that is I think I will leave that tool…
(Ok I found port-forwarding in my router setting but… how do I set it up ? )
@Shad0w Sure, open up a new topic with your question. Be sure to give detail about your router such as make and model.
Use hellmary to start automatic attack on armitage
And to port forward u can use ngrok its best way without filping
Your real ip or u can also use your router settings to change your port forwarding options
i have a problem in parrot sec OS.
when i open armitage it give me error
postgresql not start
and metasploit service not start i tried a lot of search in google but all failed.
please help me out i love parrot but due to this maybe i uninstall the parrot and again install Kali…
@whitedevil it is also OK to have both machines (kali and parrot)
about that postgresql: first check that service is started,run this command in terminal: “service postgresql restart”, and armitage is more like GUI Metasploit so check databases in Metasploit, it should be configured properly.
