We are happy to announce the immediate availability of version 3.7.1 of the Metasploit Framework, Metasploit Express, and Metasploit Pro. This is a relatively small release focused on bug fixes and performance improvements.

Notable highlights include an improved IPv6 reverse_tcp stager from Stephen Fewer, a performance improvement for HTTP services (client-side modules), a bug fix to channel support in the PHP Meterpreter, an update to MSFGUI, and various small tweaks to the included modules. In addition, this release adds exploit modules for the VLC Media Player and the ICONICS WebHMI ActiveX control (SCADA), as well as a new ARP Poisoning auxiliary module.

More details about the open source release can be found in the 3.7.1 Release Notes.  As always, the latest version is available from the Metasploit download page.

Metasploit Express and Metasploit Pro users will note an immediate performance improvement to the user interface as well as minor bug fixes to the Exploits and Vulnerabilities Live Report. Applying the latest software update from the Administration menu will apply the 3.7.1 upgrade. The full release notes can be found online at 3.7.1 Release Notes.
