The minds over at SecManiac have been hard at work and now they have just announced the release of the Social Engineering Toolkit (SET) version 1.0. This framework gives the ordinary user the power to perform several high level compromises simply by choosing from a numbered list and specifying the requested information.
Included in the framework is a complete work up of both JAVA based exploits as well as a changelog that covers over 20 new and unique upgrades from the previous v.07 release. This is a KEY tool when automating the task of targeted phishing or Spear Phishing, and is a significant area of growth for all security practitioners.
Feel free to email me back your comments and thoughts on this framework to email@example.com . Doubtless we have not seen the end to this type of attack vector. In fact, I would consider this only the beginning.
