Datamation reports that Metasploit has rolled out a new release for its open source vulnerability testing framework that boosts its exploit count and adds new Java, brute force and exploit automation technologies.

As far as brute force goes, HD Moore, Rapid7 CSO and Metasploit chief architect, explains:

This release adds a number of new protocols to the brute force suite, standardizes the options required to use them, includes a number of new default password lists, and extends the framework [with] additional modules that allow code execution when a valid password is guessed.

Metasploit version 3.4 also offers the ability to generate malicious Java Server Page and Web Application Archive files.
