Metasploit Project acquired by Rapid7

Just a few moments ago, Neil Roiter has reported on SearchSecurity that The Metasploit Project (and the Metasploit Framework) has been acquired by Rapid7, a network vulnerability management vendor. This news has been confirmed by Rapid7 (see website) and by Metasploit (see blog)

A podcast of a discussion (on the acquisition) between HD Moore and Corey Thomas can be found here

Base on the SearchSecurity report, Metasploit will remain open source (free licensing), and Rapid7 seems to be exploring ways to integrate Metasploit into their own NeXpose products.

It is not clear whether a commercial version of Metasploit framework will be developed in the future (to compete with similar tools from companies such as Immunity and Core Security), but let’s hope the framework will remain free, maintained and updated in the future as it has been in the past.

Good luck @HD Moore with your new full time job (CSO /C. Architect of Metasploit)   and  @Egypt (who will join the team as the first core developer)
