Re: How to cancel a script scan

With some scripts it would be really useful to be able to run that
script until the user decides it has run long enough. The
target-sniffer is one example. Currently the users need to specify a
timeout before running the script. One day we might want to make it
more interactive and say "sniffing for targets, press <some key> to
start the scan". I believe this is a slightly different use case, but
we might want to add it to the todo list.

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to cancel an undergoing script scan? (without losing the
portscan results of course)

I'm afraid it's not possible now. The ability to do this is one of our
todo items.
