Hi Duarte,

I've looked over the new script and have a concern with the design change,
as one of the goals of the new snmp-brute script was to increase
speed. This was achieved by having one thread sending requests out and
another thread listening with a pcap socket. As we're dealing with UDP and
a service that doesn't respond, unless we have the right community, this
design successfully made the script a lot faster than the initial version.
So I think we should try to address the issues we're seeing while keeping
the current design.
