Converting exploit to a Metasploit module

So far, we have used exploit modules in order to compromise our target. In this recipe, we will take our module usage experience to the next level. We will try and develop a complete exploit module using an available proof of concept. Knowledge of converting exploits to a module is essential in order to convert any new exploit into a framework module and perform penetration testing without waiting for updates to come from the Metasploit team. Also, it is not possible that every exploit will be available in the form of a module within the framework. So let us move ahead with the recipe and see how we can build our own exploit modules using an available PoC.

Getting ready

To start with, let us select any exploit ...
