Mac OS X Signature (fwd)

Seems MACs still loudly announce themselves on RSTs.

I grok not wanting to put single-OS-specific code into NMAP, but there are
lots of Macs out there and lots of them have no ports open.

I've noticed that if you send a TCP packet with the acknowledgement (ACK)
flag set, a remote machine running Mac OS X will send a TCP packet with
the reset (RST) flag set and "tcp_close, during connect" in the packet
payload. I don't have any machines to test with, this was noted on my
webserver and tcpdump.
