In a penetration test, escalating your privileges and exfiltrating data are some of the most important tasks of the assessment. This course will teach you how to use the Meterpreter tool for post-exploitation tasks.
During a penetration test engagement your job is to exploit the target systems, escalate privileges, create persistence, and exfiltrate data. In this course, Post Exploitation with Meterpreter, you’ll learn to perform all post-exploitation tasks with the Meterpreter tool, which is part of the Metasploit Framework. First, you’ll explore how to initiate a Meterpreter session and the basic Meterpreter shell commands. Next, you’ll discover how to escalate your privileges to gain admin-level access. Then, you’ll learn how to create persistence in the target system. Finally, you will learn how to use the Meterpreter tool to search and exfiltrate sensitive data. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of post exploitation with Meterpreter needed to perform a complete penetration test.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Ricardo, and welcome to my course, Post Exploitation with Meterpreter. I'm a cyber security specialist with years of experience in offensive security and instant detection. During a penetration test engagement, after getting initial access to your victim computer, you have to perform several post exploitation tasks such as privilege escalation, creating persistence, and even sometimes data exfiltration. In this course, you'll learn how to perform all those post exploitation tasks with the meterpreter tool, which is part of the Metasploit Framework. In this course, we cover some really important topics, such as how to get a meterpreter session to your victim computer, how to escalate privileges using vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, how to create persistence using scheduled tasks and services, and how to search and exfiltrate data without being detected. By the end of this course, you'll be fluent in meterpreter, and you'll be able to perform all the post exploitation tasks using that tool. So I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn about exploitation techniques with the Post Exploitation with Meterpreter course, here, at Pluralsight.
