In the new "automated exploitation area", you can use other tools and
finally you can have your own opinion...now, you can "exploit" the found
vulnerabilities... in Nessus, ISS Internet Scanner, Symantec NetRecon and
GFI LanGuard you only can test the vulnerabilities with few (or none)
possibilities of attack and compromise. Below, I show some tools:

Immunity's CANVAS http://www.immunitysec.com/ <- Commercial tool write in
Exploitation Framework
http://www.securityforest.com/wiki/index.php/Exploitation_Framework <-
OpenSource tool with "massive amount of exploits available"
MetaSploit http://www.metasploit.com/ <-OpenSource tool - with Web GUI
ATK http://www.computec.ch/projekte/atk/main.html <-OpenSource tool write in
VB for Windows

For Core Impact, I think that it is a good tool but it has certain
limitations...the number of exploits... if you can use an exploit, you need
"port/rewrite" the code in the Core´s "standard"...the good thing in this
tool is the capacity of "pivot" the compromised host and to use it as
platform of attack against internal hosts...

I think that this tools must be used jointly with a clear metodology
(OSSTMM). A good automatic exploit framework must be 1) platform independent
2) good exploit collection 3) a intutive GUI 4) you can add new exploits
without rewrite the code 5) OpenSource and 6) good reporting tools.

Hey folks. I was just wondering if anyone out there has tried the
Core Impact product, or even better, purchased it and currently uses
it. If so, would you be so kind as to send me a quick down and dirty
of how you feel about this product? I am in the process of looking at
it and before I move any further, I would like to have the community's
thoughts on this Company and their product. Any comments would be

P.S. - Don't feel you have to post them publicly. Just send them
directly to me, unless you feel it is something everyone will benefit
