Metasploit is a wonderful tool for penetration testing that contain a database of publicly known exploits for various operating system and software’s, we have discussed how to hack windows via metasploit on backtrack Linux but how to hack Linux (Ubuntu and any other Linux) via metasploit. Metasploit contain several exploits for Linux operating system too but we can windows exploit for Linux. This is the video tutorial in which I will show you how to hack a Linux operating system because in the penetration testing sometimes we need to get the root access on the server or computer.
