Metasploit 3.4 and SET 0.6.1 on iPhone 4

Just a quick update on getting your favorite tools on iOS 4 – Metasploit and SET. You need to have a Jailbroken iPhone with SSH access for this. You will also need to install nano andAPT 0.7 Strict via Cydia. Getting everything up and running is a breeze now. Open a console and type in:

cd /private/var/
apt-get install subversion nano ruby rubygems wget python
apt-get clean
tar jxpf framework-3.4.1.tar.bz2
cd msf3
svn updateRemember that everything takes a bit more time on the iPhone, be patient while running msfconsole for the first time. Once that’s done, its a quick path to a shell:

Social Engineering Toolkit (SET) 0.6.1

Also a breeze to install:

cd /private/var/
svn co SET/
cd SET/
./set # (Agree to install the pexpect and beautiful soup python modules).

Edit your set config file found at config/set_config and change the msf path to/private/var/msf3 (or relevant path). We ran the Website Cloner with a Malicious Java Applet :

And were immediately greeted by a meterpreter shell:

UPDATE: A few days after this post was made, the Cydia repos got an updated ruby 1.9 package, which breaks metasploit completely.

muts:/private/var/msf3 root# ./msfconsole
ruby(528,0x3e7c27c8) malloc: *** error for object 0x316eff0: pointer being freed was not allocated
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
Abort trap

To resolve this, uninstall ruby 1.9, and rubygems, and install the older packages (ruby_1.8.6-p111-5_iphoneos-arm.deb and rubygems_1.2.0-3_iphoneos-arm.deb) manually with dpkg.
