While running meterpreter handler, is it possible to execute a command on the local computer?

That wasn't mentioned in the output of help command. I also tried !ls and to no avail.

Is it possible then?



The 'execute' command runs a command on the target


The 'shell' command will present you with a standard shell on the target system.

If you want to run the command on the attacker host press Ctrl+Z to background the Meterpreter shell, and issue your command in the Metasploit shell. You can return to Meterpreter with the session command.

  • this is correct. But how to automate that? I have create a file: msfconsole -r file.rb but commands are run only within the msfconsole application. How to automate the shell commands? Or how to automate the execute -f cmd.exe -i -H IN the meterpreter? – Sebastian Jan 9 '14 at 12:16
