Nmap 7.11 (Network Mapper And Port Scanner) Has Been Released

As you may know, Nmap is a command-line network exploration tool that supports ping scanning to determine the online hosts, port scanning techniques and TCP/IP fingerprinting for remote device identification.

The latest version available is Nmap 7.11, which brings the below changes:

  • Added support for diffie-hellman-group-exchange-* SSH key exchange methods to ssh2.lua, allowing ssh-hostkey to run on servers that only support custom Diffie-Hellman groups.
  • Added support in sslcert.lua for Microsoft SQL Server’s TDS protocol, so you can now grab certs with ssl-cert or check ciphers with ssl-enum-ciphers.
  • Fix a crash when setting default window geometry:
  • Fix a crash when displaying the date from an Nmap XML file due to an empty or unknown locale.
  • Fix a crash due to incorrect file paths when installing to /usr/local prefix.

Installation instructions:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pi-rho/security
