Metasploit Weekly Wrap-Up 02/02/2024

This week's updates include improvements to  Framework's SMB server implementation: the SMB server can now be reused across various SMB modules, which are now able to register their own unique shares and files. SMB modules can also now be executed concurrently. Currently, there are 15 SMB modules in Framework that utilize this feature.
