The Social-Engineer Toolkit “Street Cred” 3.7.1 available

The Social-Engineer Toolkit (SET) was created and written by the founder of TrustedSec. It is an open-source Python-driven tool aimed at penetration testing around Social-Engineering. SET has been presented at large-scale conferences including Blackhat, DerbyCon, Defcon, and ShmooCon. With over two million downloads, SET is the standard for social-engineering penetration tests and supported heavily within the security community.

The Social-Engineer Toolkit has over 2 million downloads and is aimed at leveraging advanced technological attacks in a social-engineering type environment. TrustedSec believes that social-engineering is one of the hardest attacks to protect against and now one of the most prevalent. The toolkit has been featured in a number of books including the number one best seller in security books for 9 months since its release,“Metasploit: The Penetrations Testers Guide” written by TrustedSec’s President and CEO.

SET is included in the latest version of the most popular Linux distribution focused on security, Back|Track. It can also be downloaded through subversion using the following command:

svn co set/


This version has a number of new features including the ability to utilize the SET interactive shell to directly paste shellcode straight into memory and be executed on the victim machine (demo video below). In addition, the new Java Applet zero day has now been incorporated into SET under the Metasploit Web Attack Vector. This version also fixes a number of known bugs including fixes towards the Arduino attack vectors. Additionally, the Metasploit Attack Vectors now incorporate dates to let you know which exploitsare more recent. A full changelog can be found after the video below.
