Fast-Track is a python based open-source project aimed at helping Penetration Testers in an effort to identify, exploit, and further penetrate a network. It’s an incredible tool to have handy in any pen-tester’s toolkit. I’ll show you how to set it up on an Ubuntu box.
To start we’ll need to set up some of the dependencies that Fast-Track uses. These will be ProFTP, sqlite3, and Metasploit.
To install ProFTP and sqlite3 run this command:
sudo apt-get install proftpd sqlite3 -y
Now for Metasploit you can refer to my post on installing it on Ubuntu. http://boreditguy.com/blog/?p=128
Next you’ll need to download Fast-Track from the Secure State website. https://www.securestate.com/pages/fast-track.aspx
You’ll get a package called fasttrack.tgz. Extract it to your /home/username directory.
Open a terminal and change directories to your newly extracted fasttrack directory. Run this command to start the install:
~$ sudo python setup.py install
It will first ask for your Metasploit directory, and it assumes the backtrack directory structure of /pentest/… I installed Metasploit to my home directory so I had to tell it the path like so:
Next let it attempt to install any additional dependencies it may need.
I’m using a fresh install of Ubuntu for this and I had a few things installed and it still came back saying that I needed Psyco and Beautiful Soup.
I said yes to allow it to install. It then asked if it could install PyMills, which I also said yes to.
Now Fast-Track is installed. To start the web gui enter:
sudo ./fast-track.py -g
Now open your browser to http://127.0.0.1:44444. Go to Fast-Track Updates and click Update Everything.
Fast-Track is now ready to go and ready for you to “Pop a box”…
