BlueKeep scanner

Last week, Metasploit contributors zerosum0x0 and JaGoTu added an unauthenticated scanner module for BlueKeep, aka CVE-2019-0708. The module checks for vulnerable hosts without crashing targets; zerosum0x0 has a write-up here on avoiding the DoS that has plagued so many of the other proof-of-concept BlueKeep scanners. See the PR for details, including the list of supported Windows target versions. Future additions and improvements to the module are likely.

A2K19: MSF community hackathon

What’s the collective noun for a group of hackers? Every few years, a cadre of Metasploit committers descends on Austin for a community hackathon. This year we’re hosting folks from Oz and Hong Kong in addition to friends from around the U.S. Keep an eye on hackathon happenings by watching the a2k19 label on the Framework repo.
