    Ruby is mainly used in web app development because that's what makes money. However, Ruby is also used in Information Security (infosec) and there are a dozen or so Ruby security tools and libraries (metasploit, ronin, arachni, dnscat2, dradis). There's also SciRuby which aims to allow Ruby being used in the scientific/academic fields. You've probably heard/seen DragonRuby which is helping to popularize Ruby for simple game development. There's also a lot of interesting work happening around mruby and mruby-c (see mruby/c on Flipper Zero and mruby on DreamCast).

    Pen testing is a proactive cybersecurity practice where security experts target individual components or whole applications to find vulnerabilities that can be exploited to compromise the application and data. ZAP, Metasploit, and Burp Suite can be used for doing pen tests and it can discover vulnerabilities that might be missed by SAST and DAST tools. The downside of a pen test is that it takes more time depending on the coverage and configuration. The proper pen test might take up to several weeks, and with DevOps development speed, it becomes unsustainable. However, it's still worth adding Internal VAPT which can be done on every feature release to move fast and external VAPT can be done biannually or annually to keep overall security in check.

    It's a new bug in 6.2.6. It has been reported in kali bug reports page. I have the same problem when after I upgraded my kali. So just wait for the metasploit 6.2.8 until next few weeks. It will get resolved. Here is the link of issues discussion:
