However, many firms are lax about applying patches, opening their information to hackers. Metasploit has created other tools to hack other software programs, including Microsoft Windows, Apple’s OSX, Linux and Posix operating systems, as well as the Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers and applications such as Office and Adobe’s PDF applications. Meanwhile, Mandiant, another security firm, says it has developed a tool that can detect Metasploit attacks. It says Metasploit’s Meterpreter software lets developers write code in DLL files and execute everything in memory. This means nothing is written to disk where it might be detected. Testers and hackers can use Meterpreter to download and upload files, execute code, and open its own command shell. The new tool can tell if Meterpreter is still in memory, and, if so, which files Meterpreter has accessed, and whether it has changed a registry key.
