There are security issues with python27.dll which is distributed in the
latest versions of Nmap for Windows. See here:
"Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Python, which can be
exploited by malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive
information, hijack a user's session, and cause a DoS (Denial of Service)."
I haven't done any testing myself so i cannot confirm if these issues
would specifically impact Windows Nmap users, but i figured i would
report the issue none the less and let you guys look into it.
