    Metasploit .run Installation

    I am trying to install Metasploit(A Penetration Testing Framework). I when I download it is a .run file. How would I install this file?

    LOL, no offence but if you cant run a .run file you will have a experience to say the least using MSF especially in its preffered format which is the MSF CLI or MSFconsole. You might want to learn some more Linux first.

    Anyways a .run file is run as

    Code:
    sh ./file<name>.run
    or

    Code:
    sudo ./<filename>.run
    ./ presumes you are in the files location.

    If you want to learn and play with it you are better off downloading the BT 5 R3 .iso and playing with it in a VM or live CD as it is already configured.

    If not then read this http://www.darkoperator.com/installi...loit-in-ubunt/

    I know quite a bit about Linux I just haven't come upon a .run file before.

    I think that you actually need to run that file with ./filename.run
    It may work with sh filename.run but in case you get some executable script which isn't a bash script, you can get in troubles. The thing is that the first line of such scripts usually is something like #!/usr/bin/pythoon or #!/bin/sh which tells "the system" which interpreter to use. So chmod +x and just ./filename.run is maybe a better choice.

    That is why I gave both options

    Anyways to the OP you can read there instructions at their official docs here https://community.rapid7.com/docs/DOC-1293

    and specifically for Ubuntu using the binary here https://community.rapid7.com/docs/DOC-1296
