Set up Metasploitable on Windows in Virtual Box


To get started you will need  Vagrant, Packer, and Virtualbox. Install these dependencies:




We recommend using these exact versions as the scripts were made for them.

Metasploitable on Windows – Install Vagrant reload plugin

Go to the directory in the command line to the directory where unpacked the Vagrant Reload plugin then run this command to install the Vagrant:

vagrant plugin install vagrant-reload

1 Install vagrant-reload

After Vagrant, continue with downloading Packer.

Metasploitable on Windows – Download Packer

The next step is to download Packer from the following download page:

Download the latest version of Packer and unpack it the Metasploitable 3 master directory. Storing the binary of Packer in the direct Metasploitable 3 directory allows easy execution for setup without setting up additional requirements. After you copy the Packer file to the Metasploitable 3 directory, you may set up the virtual machine.

Metasploitable on Windows – Creating the Metasploitable 3 VM

After all of the pre-requisites have been met, you can use Packer to setup the VM in Virtualbox. Move the command line to the Metasploitable 3 location and run the following command from an elevated command line:

packer build windows_2008_r2.json

Build Metasploitable 3 with Packer

Building the VM will take a while so be patient.

Build Metasploitable 3 with Packer finished

Build Metasploitable 3 with Packer – Build Metasploitable 3 once Packer is finished

When the script is finishes run:

vagrant box add –name=metasploitable3

vagrant box add windows_2008_r2_virtualbox

How To Set up Metasploitable on Windows in Virtual Box – vagrant box add windows_2008_r2_virtualbox

Once that is completely done, run one last command:

vagrant up

The installation of Metasploitable 3 should now be done and you can use the VM.


Metasploitable on Windows – Booting Metasploitable 3

Now that you have completed the installation of Metasploitabl you may boot in in Virtualbox. The default username for the virtual machine is “vagrant” with password “vagrant”.

Verizon LG G4 Rooted Available + T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T

Verizon LG G4 Rooted Available + T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T

The Verizon LG G4 Rooted, finally!

The geniuses at have outdone themselves once again, they have found a way to get the Verizon LG G4 Rooted , as well T-Mobile, Spring and AT&T. I emphasize the Verizon variant as it is usually the last one to get root and updates from the community, so I am double impressed.  Also a few other carriers were able to get root before. Yesterday they posted to XDA that they found an easy way to get the Verizon LG G4 Rooted, but if done wrong, even one step missed…you would have a paper weight. But if you are a risk taker, and can follow pretty straight forward instructions then you will have a Verizon LG G4 root

What is this?

Low Effort Root is a root for your LG G4, named such because this is a root we really weren’t too interested in releasing, but the phone is gaining critical mass so we figured waiting any longer would be a disservice to the community.
(We also don’t like that the root ends up being ~4GB, since we’re flashing whole new system partitions.)
We had originally planned on releasing an in-android root app, however time constraints on all the team members has prevented us from devoting the necessary time to it.

This root will root any LG G4, provided we have a pre-rooted system image for it. This is akin to ‘flashing a rooted odin’ image on a Samsung phone, as we’re simply writing a system partition that contains Superuser.
No exploits here, no trickery, just a plain and simple flash and be on your merry way.

Thank you XDA, we all love you for this.
