I'm using Nmap 6.00 on Win7 SP1 64x.  I use Secunia PSI to periodically check 
for vulnerabilities in software I have installed, to keep it patched and secure. 
 I just ran it on my system and it is informing me that the python27.dll located 
in the Nmap folder is out of date and vulnerable.

Here is Secunia's advisory for Python: http://secunia.com/advisories/48347/

Thanks for the reports, Pogue and Liam.  It is unfortunate that
Secunia is flagging anyone who uses this DLL for a vulnerability in
some Pythone "Web Form" functionality which of course we don't use.
That being said, I think we should make upgrading a priority so as not
to scare users.  I'm adding a note to the Nmap TODO.  I probably just
have to install the latest version of Python on my build machine.
