I am Subhankar Raj, a first year Software Engineering student from Chennai,
India. Being in first year I have quite a lot of "free" time and with
summer break coming up I was eagerly waiting for Google Summer of code.

I came in touch with Nmap while doing a Certified Ethical Hacker course.
So when i heard Nmap was a participating organization in Google Summer of
code this year I decided to learn all that was needed to write useful NSE
script. In the process I learn the basics of Lua and went through Fyodor's
book on Nmap. I am still learning.

My University LAN has thousands of connected hosts and I believe most of
them are not properly configured. I use to scan hosts and try find
information about it and run exploits when applicable. Also I am always
facinated by the CCTV cameras and used to wonder what I could do if I had
access to there feeds(read facial recognition). There was this idea for a
cctv-dvr-brute NSE script on the scripts idea page I started working on it.

The script is basically a port from Metaspoilt framework, where it tries to
brute force authenticate over port 5920/TCP and then attempts to determine
if the IE ActiveX control used for video streaming is running on port

I am kind of stuck with the syntax. Any ideas for a beginners script inline
with what I am trying to do ? Any other beginners script that would help
clear my concepts?
