Command and Control with DOUBLEPULSAR

We now have a DOUBLEPULSAR exploit module thanks to some amazing work by our own wvu, Jacob Robles, and some significant contributions from the wider community. The module allows you to check for the DOUBLEPULSAR implant, disable it, or even load your own payloads as well; it really deserves its own blog post…

Cisco/Juniper config importers

A bit of a quality of life addition here from h00die.
We've had the ability to pull and store these configs for some time now, but the new modules
make it easy to store the config files if you find them as a flat file. No more need to get a session and use a post module to dump them in the DB.

Enhancements and features

PR 12387 puts us on to ruby 2.6.5, which comes with some security updates. You can find the specifics here.

Bugs fixed

PR 12377 by wvu fixes a bug in the stack_adjustment exploit module method that generates an error when a module specifies the Arch metadata as a single string constant rather than an array.

Get it
