It is like a celebration coming to an end. Yes! the 16th chapter of Bharat Rang Mahotsav or International Theatre Festival of India came to a close in style. For us, the play Baawre Mann Ke Sapne by director Ramanjit Kaur witnessed some untold stories of women of our country. The Creative Art, an all-women theatre production, is unique as it uses theatre as therapy with homemakers. These ‘non-actors’ have actually gone through rigorous training of discipline of time, space and body. The play has been woven together through improvisations, incidents and life experiences and also take inspiration from stories by Indian women writers like Jhumpa Lahiri, Bulbul Sharma, Abha Iyenger, Irene Dhar and others. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The focal point of the play is Amma’s decision to fly to London to see her daughter, Amita. She invites many women to her house, whom she has raised, and it is in this space they start talking, gradually revealing secrets to each other, be it about sexual abuse, domestic violence, sexual perversion or the loss of loved ones. It becomes clear that the women had been hiding immense pain and anger behind masks.The women draw strength from each other, finding cathartic relief as well as solutions and the will to change their lives. The actors have apparently taken inspiration from their personal stories and developed them to give this play shape.

Last week, the Metasploit team announced the release of its fifth version, Metasploit 5.0. This latest update introduces multiple new features including Metasploit’s new database and automation APIs, evasion modules and libraries, expanded language support, improved performance, and more. Metasploit 5.0 includes support for three different module languages; Go, Python, and Ruby. What’s New in Metasploit 5.0? Database as a RESTful service The latest Metasploit 5.0 now adds the ability to run the database by itself as a RESTful service on top of the existing PostgreSQL database backend from the 4.x versions. With this, multiple Metasploit consoles can easily interact. This change also offloads some bulk operations to the database service, which improves performance by allowing parallel processing of the database and regular msfconsole operations. New JSON-RPC API This new API will be beneficial for users who want to integrate Metasploit with new tools and languages. Till now, Metasploit supported automation via its own unique network protocol, which made it difficult to test or debug using standard tools like ‘curl’. A new common web service framework Metasploit 5.0 also adds a common web service framework to expose both the database and the automation APIs; this framework supports advanced authentication and concurrent operations and paves the way for future services. New evasion modules and libraries The Metasploit team announced a new evasion module type in Metasploit along with a couple of example modules in 2008. Using these module types, users can easily develop their own evasions and also add a set of convenient libraries that developers can use to add new on-the-fly mutations to payloads. A recent module uses these evasion libraries to generate unique persistent services. With Metasploit 5.0’s generation libraries, users can now write shellcode in C. Execution of an exploit module The ability to execute an exploit module against more than one target at a given point of time was a long-requested feature. Usage of the exploit module was limited to only one host at a time, which means any attempt at mass exploitation required writing a script or manual interaction. With Metasploit 5.0, any module can now target multiple hosts in the same way by setting RHOSTS to a range of IPs or referencing a hosts file with the file:// option. Improved search mechanism With a new improved search mechanism, Metasploit’s slow search has been upgraded and it now starts much faster out of the box. This means that searching for modules is always fast, regardless of how you use Metasploit. In addition, modules have gained a lot of new metadata capabilities. New metashell feature The new metashell feature allows users to background sessions with the background command, upload/download files, or even run resource scripts, all without needing to upgrade to a Meterpreter session first. As backward compatibility, Metasploit 5.0 still supports running with just a local database, or with no database at all. It also supports the original MessagePack-based RPC protocol.
