Hi All!  We found out just yesterday about new research by Tillmann
Werner and Felix Leder of a way to anonymously scan for Conficker worm

systems for Ron to test with.  David and Brandon helped too.  And now
we're happy to release Nmap 4.85BETA5, which includes the Conficker

You can find it on the download page:


I just noticed that the download links on the download page seem to give
403 errors across the board.
A little digging showed that they are linking to

Looking through the old download page, which suddenly appeared from my
cache, I saw the old (4.76 and 4.85beta4) downloads linked from

I tried this URL on the new 4.85beta5 and I could download from there.

In short, http://download.insecure.org/nmap-dist/nmap-4.85BETA5.tar.bz2
gives a 403, while http://nmap.org/dist/nmap-4.85BETA5.tar.bz2 works.

Thanks for reporting this. I think download.insecure.org is supposed to
be a mirror system but it doesn't work for me either. I redirected the
links to nmap.org/dist temporarily until we can figure out what the
problem is.
