Re: [NSE] p2p-conficker crashes when scanning IPv6

I don't believe Conficker supported IPv6. At least, none of the writeups I've seen mentioned it.

Hi List,

So here's the crash I got:

./scripts/p2p-conficker.nse:578: bad argument #2 to 'pack' (number 
expected, got nil)
stack traceback:
         [C]: in function 'pack'
         ./scripts/p2p-conficker.nse:578: in function 
<./scripts/p2p-conficker.nse:540>
         (...tail calls...)

Argument #2 is "ip", which comes from host.ip, after passing through 
ipOps.todword(), which returns nil, since it only supports IPv4. I
don't know if Conficker supported IPv6, but I think reasonable logic
would be to check for nmap.registry.args.realip, and if that is not
set and we are scanning IPv6, then bail. Here's my take on a patch,
but I don't know enough about the script to know if this is an
acceptable approach:
