  • no info on the site about being open source, but if it is. I look forward to a free port. I can wait for updates

    its open source as in you can develop your own exploits and add to the code base same rules apply to there canvas suite, but i doubt ver ymuch that a free port will be relased to the public.thats why they charge a licence fee to use it. the last thing we need is for this to become a free tool that every scriptkiddy on the planet will download. they would end up doing more harm than good. but lets face it metasploit proberly confuses them and this along with
    Canvas and coresec’s coreimpact are click to hack applacations. which make things very easy.

    but it was a good hacktip, more like this please 😀

    It is kind of interesting that the entire works is not available for download, as I am sure that most of the software utilized in the framework would fall under GPL.

    GPL is designed to protect the original developers and community as a whole from being cut off from commercial derivatives (that do not make available their derived code).

    I assume that anyone that has contributed to any of the GPL software used on any commercial project (as part of the distribution) would want, and be entirely entitled to the code of any derived works being released also.
