I am pleased to announce that Nmap 2.3BETA13 is now available. Please
test it out and tell me if you find problems. Here is a list of
changes from BETA12:
-- I made Nmap smarter about detecting filtering during UDP, Xmas,
NULL, and FIN scans.
-- Updated Nmapfe to 0.9.5 (+ a patch from NmapFE author Zach Smith)
-- Fixed a problem where NmapFE would fail to honor $PATH (Noticed
by K. Scott Rowe <kscott () nmt edu>)
-- Added a couple ICMP unreachable messages Nmap was missing (found by
Bifrost <bifrost () minions com>).
-- Internal cleanup that improves the way some port lists are stored.
-- Added some more RPC numbers from <mmmorris () netscape net>
-- Relaxed the dependency requirements of nmapfe rpm (now will accept
any version of Nmap).
For those of you running Linux/x86 w/rpm (www.rpm.org), you can
install/upgrade to the newest version of nmap/nmapfe with these
rpm -vhU ftp://ftp.server51.freshmeat.net/pub/nmap/nmap-2.3BETA13-1.i386.rpm
rpm -vhU ftp://ftp.server51.freshmeat.net/pub/nmap/nmap-frontend-2.3BETA13-1.i386.rpm
source tarballs and source RPMs are available at:
http://www.insecure.org/nmap or ftp://ftp.server51.freshmeat.net/pub/nmap
Some of you may have noticed that has been faster and more reliable
during the last week or two. Shouts out to Greg Hankins
<gregh () twoguys org> for providing us a squid http-accelerator mirror.
And to Area.com, the ISP that is now our primary hosting provider.
