Nmap v5.30 beta 1 in the wild - doped with scripts -

Nmap ("Network Mapper") is a free open source utility for network exploration or security auditing. It was designed to rapidly scan large networks, although it works fine against single hosts. Nmap uses raw IP packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network, what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other characteristics. Nmap runs on most types of computers and both console and graphical versions are available. Nmap is free and open source (license).0

Changelog :

  • [NSE] New script afp-path-vuln detects and can exploit a major Mac
    OS X AFP directory traversal vulnerability (CVE-2010-0533)
    discovered by Nmap developer Patrik Karlsson. See
    http://nmap.org/nsedoc/scripts/afp-path-vuln.html and
  • An ALPHA TEST VERSION of Nping, a packet generator written by Luis
    MartinGarcia and Fyodor last summer, is now included in the Nmap
    distribution. While it works, we consider the application unfinished
    and we hope to improve it greatly as a Summer of Code project this
    summer and then do an official release. See http://nmap.org/nping/
