Nmap 5.0 released

One of the must have tools for every person doing anything related to IT security is definitely Nmap (I mean, which other tool, besides an SSH exploit Trinity used as well (and that wasn't a fake SSH exploit like the one released couple of days ago)). The Nmap developers work hard on this latest version which includes some very cool things like the Nmap Scripting Engine (NSE) which we even used to detect machines infected with the Conficker worm.

There are a lot of other neat new features and improvements, so don't wait and go to to download your copy of Nmap.


I will be teaching next: Web App Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking - SANS Pen Test Hackfest Europe 2022 - Berlin

Don't forget ncat, the netcat look-alike built from nmap libraries! It looks sort of like netcat, but had tons more features.
