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 :).
