Hi Kost,

The attached patch contains some cleanup of the nexpose-brute script.
Before I commit it though I wanted to get some opinions from the list in
regards to account lockout.

In general I haven't bothered too much with account lockout before, but
Nexpose locks accounts after 4 incorrect attempts per default. In the
community edition I have been testing it against, I can't get back in
without restarting the as the only account I have gets locked. So, my
question is, do we need to address this in some way, limiting the amount of
tries to 3 per account and allowing the user to force more attempts through
a script argument?

Yes, NeXpose is the only one which have account lockout in place. How it is done for other protocols now?
