Harvest email addresses using Backtrack and msfconsole

Hello all,

Most of you probably already know what i am about to explain here. But bear with me

Tools you will need :
1) Backtrack 5 ( Contains Msfconsole by default)

Instructions :
1) Lets begin by opening your shell command on Backtrack 5.
2) Next type the following commands shown below :
root@root:~# msfconsole
NOTICE: CREATE TABLE will create implicit sequence “hosts_id_seq” for serial column “hosts.id”
NOTICE: CREATE TABLE / PRIMARY KEY will create implicit index “hosts_pkey” for table “hosts”
NOTICE: CREATE TABLE will create implicit sequence “clients_id_seq” for serial column “clients.id”
NOTICE: CREATE TABLE / PRIMARY KEY will create implicit index “clients_pkey” for table “clients”
* Allow Msfconsole to fully load till the screen below appears.
