BeEF the Browser Exploitation Framework v0.4.2.4 Alpha released
BeEF, the Browser Exploitation Framework is a professional security tool provided for lawful research and testing purposes. It allows the experienced penetration tester or system administrator additional attack vectors when assessing the posture of a target. The user of BeEF will control which browser will launch which command module and at which target.
BeEF hooks one or more web browsers as beachheads for the launching of directed command modules in real-time. Each browser is likely to be within a different security context. This provides additional vectors that can be exploited by security professionals.
The Framework is being ported to Ruby. The process is well underway and is available for testing. To download alpha versions view the download area on googlecode.
