What Is It?

Meterpreter is a payload delivered to a target machine that communicates over a network using sockets. It's essentially an enhanced shell, and the client-side payload provides a Ruby API that enables it to be controlled with Metasploit.

Meterpreter is an entirely in-memory tool, and writes nothing to disk.

It uses encrypted communications - so replaces cryptcat.

It provides additional functionality that a basic netcat or cryptcat shell might not provide.
