msf Handler failed to bind to ...

Can someone guide me on this? Not quite sure where i'm going wrong.

msf5 exploit(windows/http/rejetto_hfs_exec) > run

[-] Handler failed to bind to ...:4444:- -
[-] Handler failed to bind to 0.0.0.0:4444:- -
[-] Exploit failed [bad-config]: Rex::BindFailed The address is already in use or unavailable: (0.0.0.0:4444).
[*] Exploit completed, but no session was created.

  • Sounds like you have another handler running in the background.
    Check for still running nc instances, and also for active jobs inside metasploit.

    Using netstat -tulpen | grep 4444 should show which process is currently bound to that port.
