      Guys,

      this has just been posted on the nmap mailing list

      After promising you a book on Nmap for years, I’m delighted to finally
      announce the release of Nmap Network Scanning!  It contains everything
      I’ve learned about network scanning from more than a decade of Nmap
      development, plus some bad jokes and (over Time Warner’s written
      objections) pictures of Trinity hacking the Matrix :).  Here is the
      abstract:

        Nmap Network Scanning is the official guide to the Nmap Security
        Scanner, a free and open source utility used by millions of people
        for network discovery, administration, and security auditing. From
        explaining port scanning basics for novices to detailing low-level
        packet crafting methods used by advanced hackers, this book by
        Nmap’s original author suits all levels of security and networking
        professionals. The reference guide documents every Nmap feature and
        option, while the remainder demonstrates how to apply them to
        quickly solve real-world tasks. Examples and diagrams show actual
        communication on the wire. Topics include subverting firewalls and
        intrusion detection systems, optimizing Nmap performance, and
        automating common networking tasks with the Nmap Scripting Engine.

      Definitely on my Christmas wishlist.


      my cut&paste skills are lacking: part of the book is freely available online. http://nmap.org/book/toc.html

      Thanks RR,

      I think the problem you’ve got there is that women(*) are not logical beings, but if you ever manage it let me know the secret to your success 😉

      Note (*): apologises for the generalisation to any females on the board, just my personal experience

      I suspect actually that most wife implementations have a buffer overflow vulnerability when parsing flowers/chocolate.  if you send them with a well-crafted payload in the form of an attached note, you can overwrite the return address, directing them to a particularly romantic resturant of your choice and thereafter continually drop references to your book in the context of christmas presents. 

      make sure you handle the exit gracefully though so as to avoid segfaulting….

      Thanks for the advice. I’ll let you all know if teh buffer overflow is successful.
