Hi list,

I've noticed that in the http nselib the default user agent is hard coded as
"Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Nmap Scripting Engine;
http://nmap.org/book/nse.html)"
this could be easily detected by an IDS/IPS.

I've attached a patch that changes it to the user agent pfa Firefox 3.6 web
browser on a Windows 7 machine.
This would make the http traffic generated look more authentic.
