Almost five months ago, I covered this automated penetration testing toolkit. I was updating my tools today and found that this toolkit was also updated some time ago. This is the APT2 v1.0-20170613 release, which was released almost 2 months ago.

APT2 v1.0-20170613

What is APT2?

> APT2 will perform an NMap scan, or import the results of a scan from Nexpose, Nessus, or NMap. The processesd results will be used to launch exploit and enumeration modules according to the configurable Safe Level and enumerated service information. All module results are stored on localhost and are part of APT2's Knowledge Base (KB). The KB is accessible from within the application and allows the user to view the harvested results of an exploit module.
