Djalal's Status Report #17 of 17
From: Djalal Harouni <tixxdz () opendz org>
Date: Tue, 23 Aug 2011 11:01:34 +0100


The last GSoC status report.

* Committed a patch to optimize stdnse.format_output()

* Have committed a lot of code to the vulnerability library:
  * Made the vuln_table.dates.disclosure a table.

  * Regroup and store vulnerabilities in different tables according to
    their state.
    o NOT VULNERABLE will only include: NOT VULNERABLE
    The new output will be:
    -- 25/tcp open  smtp
    -- | smtp-vuln-cve2010-4344:
    -- |   VULNERABLE:
    -- |   Exim string_format Function Remote Overflow
    -- |     State: VULNERABLE
    -- |     IDs:  CVE-2010-4344; OSVDB 69685
    -- |     References:
    -- |       http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-4344
    -- |       http://osvdb.org/show/osvdb/69685
    -- |
    -- |   Exim X vulnerability
    -- |     State: LIKELY VULNERABLE
    -- |     References:
    -- |       http://example.com/...
    -- |
    -- |   NOT VULNERABLE:
    -- |   Exim Y vulnerability
    -- |     State: NOT VULNERABLE
    -- |     References:
    -- |_      http://example.com/...

    For more information check commit r25975.
 * Removed the 'UNKNOWN' vulnerability state.
 * Added the 'vulns.showall' to report and show NON VULNERABLE entries.
 * Fixed several bugs.
 * Optimized a lot of parts of the library.
 * Added the NSEDoc to some functions, and have documented some parts of
   the code.
 * Made the library report and show the list of scripts that have checked
   and tested the same vulnerability that affect the same host.
 * Made the library in the post-processing mode show all the results of
   all the scripts.
 * ...

* Added some scripts to test the vulnerability library:
  vulns-test-1.nse and vulns-test-2.nse  hostrule scripts.
  vulns-post-processing.nse  A postrule script.

* Finish and clean the vulnerability library, and update the other
  vulnerability scripts to use it.
  Most of the features of the library are finished, still the:
  vulns.make_output() and vulns.get_vulnerabilities() functions for
  post-processing scripts, then I'll do some benchmarking tests.

* Work on my script list when time permits.

Finally it was a great GSoC, thanks for all the epic meetings, to others
on nmap-dev, and to my mentor Henri who was very helpful.

Merci Henri :)
