Recommended Posts

Hello, When I open Metaspoilt it gives me an error

WARNING! The following modules could not be loaded!
[-]     /usr/share/metasploit-framework/modules/payloads/singles/windows/powershell_reverse_tcp.rb: NameError uninitialized constant Msf::Handler::ReverseTcp
[-]     /usr/share/metasploit-framework/modules/payloads/singles/windows/x64/powershell_reverse_tcp.rb: NameError uninitialized constant Msf::Handler::ReverseTcp

my powershell_reverse_tcp.rb has following configuration

module Metasploit3

  How old is your version of metasploit??

try reinstalling it from the github site and run gem install bundle

you have delete your existing metasploit directory or rename it first.
