NMAP v7.10 is released. Feature the same basic functionality but now has some new scripts for advanced users, some bug fixes and better OS fingerprint analysis. Happy Hunting! Thank you! Thanks for sharing! Thanks for sharing :) That's great... Thnx... Thanks for sharing! thanks for info For anyone wanting to use the most recent version of nmap, you may need to manually download and install it instead of relying on the update system for your version of Linux. For example, I just tried 'apt-get install nmap' on both Kali and Ubuntu. Kali is running nmap 7.01 and Ubuntu is running nmap 6.47, but both of them say it is the most recent version available. It can often take a while for the most recent software update to make it into the packages for a particular version of Linux. @prouk thanks for the heads up. @prouk good info for sure! The NMAP Book contains a chapter devoted to installing the latest version from source. Find it at [Chapter 2. Obtaining, Compiling, Installing, and Removing Nmap]( This is all too often a necessary activity (install from source) as typically the distro you are using will not have a recent version of Nmap in it's repository for months, sometimes years after release. btw the latest source version is 7.12 and appears to have a release date of Mar 29, 2016 fwiw :^} \[ASCII cat deleted, the formating here messes up the spacing\] Yeah, no more dragon Now it's a (net)Cat Configuration complete. \[more del'd ascii art\] NMAP IS A POWERFUL TOOL -- USE CAREFULLY AND RESPONSIBLY Configured with: ndiff zenmap nping openssl lua ncat Configured without: localdirs nmap-update Type make (or gmake on some \*BSD machines) to compile. =+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+= Whoo hoo! A simple ```sudo apt-get install build-essentials``` followed shortly by ```sudo apt-get install libssl-dev``` cuz I was missing the openssl developer libraries and now I can do a ```make``` followed by ```make install``` and the newest NMAP will be available on my Trusty Tahr box and this is a LOT easier than d/ling the latest Kali just to have a recent Nmap Nice one I've been using nmap for simple port scanning for years, but I just recently starting looking at its scripting abilities. I was pretty amazed at how much more you can do with nmap once you learn to use the existing scripts (or even write some of your own). A demo given by the nmap creator is at the link below. For any folks out there aspiring to get their CEH or just be a leet haxor, NMAP is one of those fundamental skills you should take the time to learn. Know your switches, and what NMAP can do for you. If you are trying to be stealth behind something like TOR, make sure you are only communicating using TCP, and not UDP or ICMP. Many thanks Thanks for sharing. thank you for sharing.
