Yes...that's exactly the point of Metasploit

I agree with you...because that's the whole point.

The point of Metasploit is to have a tool that you, the sysadmin, can use to find the vulnerabilities in your own systems...before the crackers do (and I assure you, they will). Hence the use of the expression "pwn". That's precisely what the crackers want to do.
