Hi Fyodor,

Thanks for that.

In the end I ran with --script-args=unsafe=1 which came back with:
Host script results:
|  smb-check-vulns:
|  MS08-067: FIXED
|_ Conficker: Likely CLEAN

Which makes things clearer.

BTW you're email came through quicker than my post to nmap-dev list, which I was going to put this reply to.

Given that it is a little unsafe, I don't think I'll be running this against the whole firm during normal hours :)

Thanks again!

Hi Guys,

Awesome for getting this out so quick!

Just wanting to clarify the output from nmap when scanning for Conficker.
When it says: "MS08-067: NOT RUN"
Does that mean the scan/probe hasn't been run, or the patch hasn't been applied?

It means the script was not run.  I think you need to remove the
"--script-args safe=1" to run that one.  But when I just tried that
(and I also added -d) against one of my XP virtual machines, I got:

Host script results:
|  smb-check-vulns:
|  MS08-067: LIKELY VULNERABLE (host stopped responding)
|  Conficker: ERROR: SMB: Failed to receive bytes: TIMEOUT
|_ regsvc DoS: NOT RUN (add --script-args=unsafe=1 to run)

So in other words, I think it crashed the service.  When Ron says a
certain script does not qualify as "safe", he's not kidding around :).
