As the name might suggest AutoSploit attempts to automate the exploitation of remote hosts. Targets can be collected automatically through Shodan, Censys or Zoomeye. But options to add your custom targets and host lists have been included as well. The available Metasploit modules have been selected to facilitate Remote Code Execution and to attempt to gain Reverse TCP Shells and/or Meterpreter sessions. Workspace, local host and local port for MSF facilitated back connections are configured by filling out the dialog that comes up before the exploit component is started
Operational Security Consideration:
Receiving back connections on your local machine might not be the best idea from an OPSEC standpoint. Instead consider running this tool from a VPS that has all the dependencies required, available.
The new version of AutoSploit has a feature that allows you to set a proxy before you connect and a custom user-agent.
Installing AutoSploit is very simple, you can find the latest stable release here. You can also download the master branch as a zip or tarball or follow one of the below methods;
Using Docker Compose is by far the easiest way to get AutoSploit up and running without too much of a hassle.
git clone https://github.com/NullArray/AutoSploit.git cd Autosploit/Docker docker-compose run --rm autosploit
Just using Docker.
git clone https://github.com/NullArray/AutoSploit.git cd Autosploit/Docker # If you wish to edit default postgres service details, edit database.yml. Should work out of the box # nano database.yml docker network create -d bridge haknet docker run --network haknet --name msfdb -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=s3cr3t -d postgres docker build -t autosploit . docker run -it --network haknet -p 80:80 -p 443:443 -p 4444:4444 autosploit
Dev team contributor Khast3x recently improved Docker operations as well as add more details to the README.md in the
Docker subdirectory. For more information on deploying AutoSploit with Docker please be sure to click here
On any Linux system the following should work;
git clone https://github.com/NullArray/AutoSploit cd AutoSploit chmod +x install.sh ./install.sh
AutoSploit is compatible with macOS, however, you have to be inside a virtual environment for it to run successfully. In order to accomplish this employ/perform the below operations via the terminal or in the form of a shell script.
sudo -s << '_EOF' pip2 install virtualenv --user git clone https://github.com/NullArray/AutoSploit.git virtualenv <PATH-TO-YOUR-ENV> source <PATH-TO-YOUR-ENV>/bin/activate cd <PATH-TO-AUTOSPLOIT> pip2 install -r requirements.txt chmod +x install.sh ./install.sh python autosploit.py _EOF
Starting the program with
python autosploit.py will open an AutoSploit terminal session. The options for which are as follows.
1. Usage And Legal 2. Gather Hosts 3. Custom Hosts 4. Add Single Host 5. View Gathered Hosts 6. Exploit Gathered Hosts 99. Quit
2 will prompt you for a platform specific search query. Enter
Apache for example and choose a search engine. After doing so the collected hosts will be saved to be used in the
As of version 2.0 AutoSploit can be started with a number of command-line arguments/flags as well. Type
python autosploit.py -h to display all the options available to you. I've posted the options below as well for reference.

Note: All dependencies should be installed using the above installation method, however, if you find they are not:
AutoSploit depends on the following Python2.7 modules.
Should you find you do not have these installed get them with pip like so.
pip install requests psutil
pip install -r requirements.txt
Since the program invokes functionality from the Metasploit Framework you need to have this installed also. Get it from Rapid7 by clicking here.
