"Metasploit has payloads for a variety of OSes including
Windows, Linux, OS X, BSD and Solaris. The most basic payload is a
simple bind shell: an attacker's machine connects to the victim
machine and gets a command prompt. There's also a reverse attack,
causing the compromised machine to connect back to the attacker and
spawn a command shell. With the command shell the hacker can do
anything someone sitting at the machine could do, with the
privileges of the current user."
