i want to know if there is a way of
making the OS undetectable. it will
be of great help if anyone could
point out how do it?. i am using
both windows and linux.
There are some suggestions in "Hacking Linux Exposed". One is put a dedicated firewall or linksys router between your
machine & the net, then nmap sees the firewall but not your actual system. IPLog includes functionality intended to
fool nmap and xprobe & can be found at < http://ojnk.sourceforge.net >. IPPersonality will "enable your machine to
impersonate any " OS, found at < http://ippersonality.sourceforge.net >. The authors offer a caution that such measures
may impact your performance or compatibility. These solutions will work for Linux but probably not windows.
