    Noob Shoots His Own Meterpreter Foot?

    Hi,

    In my noob explorations within Ubuntu 18.04 I am following the advice that 'experience is the best teacher'.

    It can get me into some silly situations, but on the wholeI'm learning, even if it's the hard way

    Anyway today I was for purposes of education and curiosity looking at Metasploit and ran using the IP of my laptop the following:



    The process did open but stalled, I'm guessing since it was applied only to my IP.

    I closed the terminal, and then a noob dread posed the following question:

    Have I (surely not) placed a meterpreter payload onto my laptop?

    Now after the hoots of laughter have died down, am I right to conclude that as not possible?

    Would it be wise to end and/or remove any traces of that and if so what terminal commands would do the job?

    Your educated and knowledgeable guidance on this matter would be most appreciated.

    I can't help with that specifically. I can say this is a great time to learn about Virtualbox. Never mess with stuff like this on your bare metal unless you know exactly what you're doing. Virtual machines are a wonderful thing. For future reference of course.

    To get help with hacking tools, you'll want to use a different forum.
    Hacking tools aren't something for this forum, even for education reasons.
