The best hacking tools you've never heard of (Part 1)

Reading this article about a Blackhat presentation on Metasploit gave me the idea for this entry.

If you haven't tried Metasploit, you should. Right now. Their motto, "Hacking like it is in the movies", is pretty accurate. They've got a good database of reliable cross-platform exploits and payloads all wrapped up in a convenient point-n-click GUI. It's extremely useful as a tool for security testers and admins who want to verify the security of their systems, but unfortunately, it can also easily be used for Evil.

You really do owe it to yourself to check this out. Trust me.
