With this in mind, I downloaded the metasploitable VM over at sourceforge ( and began hacking away at it.

WebSockets are a mechanism that allow a client (typically a web page) to talk to a server without the overhead and complications that web services may pose. The client first establishes a connection using http and then makes a request to switch over to websockets; the process is described in RFC 6455 <>__.
