security Port scanning utility for large networks
- update to 5.61TEST1
Here is the (partial) CHANGELOG since 5.59BETA1:
Nmap 5.61TEST1 [2011-09-19]
o The changelog entries below for this test release are not yet
finished or comprehensive. We'll update them soon.
o [Ncat] Updated ca-bundle.crt (primarily to remove DigiNotar).
o Fixed compilation on OS X 10.7 Lion. Thanks to Patrik Karlsson and
Babak Farroki for researching fixes.
o [NSE] Fixed SSL compressor names in ssl-enum-ciphers.nse, and
removed redundant multiple listings of the NULL compressor.
o [NSE] Added cipher strength ratings to ssl-enum-ciphers.nse.
o Added Common Platform Enumeration (CPE, http://cpe.mitre.org/)
output for OS and service versions. These show up in normal output
with the headings "OS CPE:" and "Service Info:":
OS CPE: cpe:/o:linux:kernel:2.6.39
Service Info: OS: Linux; CPE: cpe:/o:linux:kernel
These also appear in XML output, which additionally has CPE entries
for service versions. [David, Henri]
o [NSE] Added new default credential list for Oracle and modified the
oracle-brute script to make use of it. [Patrik]
o [NSE] Added xmpp-info.nse as a replacement for xmpp.nse. This updated version
brings new features and fixes. [Vasiliy Kulikov]
o Fixed RPC scan for 64-bit architectures by using fixed-size data
o Relaxed the XML DTD to allow validation of files where the verbosity
level changed during the scan. [Daniel Miller]
o Made a service confidence of 8 (used when tcpwrapped) and indeed any
number between 0 and 10 be legal in XML output according to the DTD.
o [NSE] Added three scripts that do host discovery on local IPv6
subnets. Each of them uses a different multicast technique, meaning
that even very large networks have host discovery done without
needing to probe every address individually.
+ targets-multicast-ipv6-echo: Sends a multicast echo request, like
broadcast-ping does for IPv4.
+ targets-multicast-ipv6-invalid-dst: Sends an invalid packet that
can elicit an ICMPv6 Parameter Problem response.
+ targets-multicast-ipv6-slaac: Sends a phony router advertisement,
which causes hosts to allocate a temporary address and then send a
packet to discover if anyone else is using the address.
o [NSE] Added functions to packet.lua to make it easier to build IPv6
o [NSE] Added new script http-vuln-cve2011-3192 which checks whether an instance
of Apache is vulnerable to a DoS attack exploiting the byterange filter.
o [NSE] Fixed authentication problems in the TNS library that would prevent
authentication from working against Oracle 126.96.36.199.0 XE [Chris Woodbury]
o Removed some restrictions on probe matching that, for example,
prevented a RST/ACK reply from being recognized in a NULL scan. This
was found and fixed by Matthew Stickney and Joe McEachern.
o Rearranged some characters classes in service matches to avoid any
that look like POSIX collating symbols ("[.xyz.]"). John Hutchison
discovered this error caused by one of the match lines:
InitMatch: illegal regexp: POSIX collating elements are not supported
o [NSE] Added the address-info.nse script, which shows extra information about
o [NSE] Added scripts http-joomla-brute, http-wordpress-brute, http-wp-enum and
o [Zenmap] Fixed zenmap deleting ports based on newer scans which did
not actually scan the port in question. Additionally ncat now only
updates ports with new information if the new information is the same
protocol. Not just the same port. [Colin Rice]
o [Ncat] Fixed ncat crashing with --ssl-verify -vvv on windows. [Colin Rice]
o [NSE] Added script http-waf-detect. This script tries to determine
if an IDS/IPS/WAF is protecting a web server. [Paulino]
o [NSE] Added the bittorrent library and bittorrent-discovery script which
enables us to discover peers and nodes for a particular torrent file or
o [NSE] Added basic query support to the Oracle TNS library making it possible
for scripts to query the database server using SQL. [Patrik]
o [Ncat] Added --append-output option, that when used along with -o and/or -x
prevents clobbering(truncating) an existing file. [Shinnok]
o [NSE] Added script broadcast-listener that attempts to discover hosts by
passively listening to the network. It does so by decoding ethernet and IP
broadcast and multicast messages. [Patrik]
o Fixed a bug that would make Nmap segfault if it failed to open an interface
using pcap. The bug details and patch are posted here:
o Ncat SCTP mode supports connection brokering now(--sctp --broker). [Shinnok]
o Nmap now defers options parsing until it has read through all the command line
arguments. You can now use options like -S with an IPv6 address before
specifying -6 at the command line, which previously got you an error.
o [NSE] Added the library xmpp.lua and the script xmpp-brute that performs
brute force password auditing against XMPP (Jabber) servers. [Patrik]
o [NSE] Fixed a bug in the ssh2-enum-algos script that would prevent it from
displaying any output unless run in debug mode. [Patrik]
o [NSE] Fixed the nsedebug print_hex() function so it does not print an
empty line if there are no remaining characters, and improved its NSEDoc.
o [NSE] Added the scripts http-axis2-dir-traversal and
http-litespeed-sourcecode-download that exploits a directory traversal and
null byte poisoning vulnerabilities in Apache Axis2 and LiteSpeed Web Server
o [Ncat] Ncat now no longer blocks while an ssl handshake is taking place or
waiting to complete. [Shinnok]
o [NSE] Added the script broadcast-dhcp-discover that sends a DHCP discover
message to the broadcast address and collects and reports the network
information received from the DHCP server. [Patrik]
o [NSE] Added the script smtp-brute that performs brute force password
auditing against SMTP servers. [Patrik]
o [NSE] Updated SMTP library to support authentication using both plain-text
and the SASL library. [Patrik]
o [NSE] Added the script imap-brute that performs brute force password
auditing against IMAP servers. [Patrik]
o [NSE] Updated IMAP library to support authentication using both plain-text
and the SASL library. [Patrik]
o [NSE] Added SASL library created by Djalal Harouni and Patrik Karlsson
providing common code for "Simple Authentication and Security Layer" to
services supporting it. The algorithms supported by the library are:
PLAIN, CRAM-MD5, DIGEST-MD5 and NTLM. [Patrik Karlsson, Djalal Harouni]
o [NSE] Added scripts cvs-brute.nse, cvs-brute-repository.nse and the cvs
library. The cvs-brute-repository script allows for guessing possible
repository names needed in order to perform password guessing using the
cvs-brute.nse script. [Patrik]
o [Zenmap] The Zenmap crash handler now instructs you to mail in crash
information to nmap-dev. [Colin Rice]
o Added IPv6 Neighbor Discovery ping. This is the IPv6 analog to IPv4
ARP scan. It is the default ping type for local IPv6 networks.
o [NSE] Added smtp-vuln-cve2011-1764 script, which checks if the Exim
SMTP server is vulnerable to the DKIM Format String vulnerability
o Added the broadcast-ping script which sends icmp packets to broadcast
addresses on the selected network interface, or all ethernet interfaces if
none is selected. It has the option to add the discovered hosts as targets.
o [NSE] Applied patch from Chris Woodbury that adds the following additional
information to the output of smb-os-discovery:
+ Forest name
+ NetBIOS computer name
+ NetBIOS domain name
o [Ncat] Ncat now supports IPV6 addresses by default without the -6 flag.
Additionally ncat listens on both :: and localhost when passed
-l, or any other listening mode unless a specific listening address is
o [NSE] Split script db2-discover into two scripts, adding a new
broadcast-db2-discover script. This script attempts to discover DB2
database servers through broadcast requests. [Patrik Karlsson]
o Fixed broken XML output in the case of timed-out hosts; the
enclosing host element was missing. The fix was suggested by Rémi
o [NSE] Added ftp-vuln-cve2010-4221 script, which checks if the ProFTPD
server is vulnerable to the Telnet IAC stack overflow vulnerability
o [NSE] Added ftp-vsftpd-backdoor, which detects a backdoor that was introduced
into vsftpd-2.3.4 source code distributions. [Daniel Miller]
o [NSE] ldap-brute.nse - Multiple changes:
+ Added support for 2008 R2 functional level Active Directory instances
+ Added detection for valid credentials where the target account was
expired or limited by time or login host constraints.
+ Added support for specifying a UPN suffix to be appended to usernames
when brute forcing Microsoft Active Directory accounts.
+ Added support for saving discovered credentials to a CSV file.
+ Now reports valid credentials as they are discovered when the script
is run with -vv or higher.
o [NSE] ldap-search.nse - Added support for saving search results to
CSV. This is done by using the ldap.savesearch script argument to
specify an output filename prefix. [Tom Sellers]
o [NSE] Updated smb-brute to add detection for valid credentials where the
target account was expired or limited by time or login host constraints.
o [NSE] Updated account status text in brute force password discovery
scripts in an effort to make the reporting more consistent across
all scripts. This will have an impact on any code that parses these
values. [Tom Sellers]
