Metasploit Development Environment In Ubuntu

I have spent some time today getting a new Metasploit Development Environment in place. With a lot of help from DarkOperator and egyp7 I think I have succeeded.

Step 1: Installing some Pre-Reqs

sudo aptitude install build-essential libssl-dev zlib1g zlib1g-dev subversion openssh-server screen bison flex jam exuberant-ctags libreadline-dev libxml2-dev libxslt-dev libpcap-dev libmysqlclient-dev libpq-dev curl git libsqlite3-dev
Step 2 Installing RVM

sudo bash < <(curl -s
Edit your .bashrc file for each user that will be using RVM:
And add the following lines to the end of it:
# Load RVM source if [[ -s "/usr/local/rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] ; then source "/usr/local/rvm/scripts/rvm" ; fi # Enable Tab Completion in RVM [[ -r /usr/local/rvm//scripts/completion ]] && source /usr/local/rvm/scripts/completion

Then from bash run: source /usr/local/rvm/scripts/rvm

Next we install some necessary packages for rvm:

rvm pkg install zlib
rvm pkg install openssl
rvm pkg install readline

Then we install the ruby versions we want

rvm install 1.9.2 --with-zlib-dir=$rvm_path/usr --with-openssl-dir=$rvm_path/usr --with-readline-path=$rvm_path/usr 

rvm 1.9.2 --default

rvm install 1.9.1 --with-zlib-dir=$rvm_path/usr --with-openssl-dir=$rvm_path/usr --with-readline-path=$rvm_path/usr

rvm install 1.8.7 --with-zlib-dir=$rvm_path/usr --with-openssl-dir=$rvm_path/usr --with-readline-path=$rvm_path/usr

Then we install some needed Gems:

rvm gem install --no-rdoc --no-ri wirble pry pg nokogiri mysql sdoc msgpack hpricot sqlite3-ruby

Step 3: Adding DarkOperator's IRB customizations:

Create a file ~/.irbrc

The file should look like this:

puts "Loaded ~/.irbrc"
# Load Lobraries
require 'rubygems'
require 'wirble'
require 'irb/completion' 
# Enable Indentation in irb
IRB.conf[:AUTO_INDENT] = true 
# Enable Syntax Coloring 
# get all the methods for an object that aren't basic methods from Object
class Object
def local_methods
(methods - Object.instance_methods).sort

This customizes irb to give us syntax highlighting, tab completion, auto-indentation, and simple method enumeration.

Step 4: Installing Metasploit:

Step 5: Running Metasploit:
If you want to run msfconsole with the packaged Ruby, just run 'msfconsole' from bash.
Otherwise select your version like this: rvm 1.8.7
Then call msfconsole with the full path: /opt/metasploit/msf3/msfconsole

That's all there is to it. You are now ready to test your metasploit modules in various different versions of ruby all from the same box.

Once again, thanks to egypt and DarkOperator who provided a lot of this guidance to me.
