Nmap 6 Released

Directly from the man...


Hi folks!  After almost three years of work, 3,924 code commits, and more than a dozen point releases since Nmap 5, I'm delighted to announce the release of Nmap 6!  It includes a more powerful Nmap Scripting Engine, 289 new scripts, better web scanning, full IPv6 support, the Nping packet prober, faster scans, and much more!

For the top 6 improvements in Nmap 6, see the release notes:

http://nmap.org/6

Or you can go straight to the download page to grab the source code or the Linux, Mac, and Windows installers:

http://nmap.org/download.html

Enjoy the release!  And if you find any bugs, let us know on nmap-dev as described at:

http://nmap.org/book/man-bugs.html

As an open source project, we don't have a marketing budget.  So please help spread the word about the new release!  I encounter many folks at security conferences who haven't heard about all the modern Nmap capabilities and only use it as a simple port scanner.  Anyone who doesn't use NSE, or at least version detection, is missing out!

Cheers,
Fyodor

Re: Nmap 6 Released

This should work:


Download nmap 6 from http://nmap.org/download.html

apt-get remove nmap
apt-get build-dep nmap
tar jxvf nmap-6.0.0.tar.bz2
cd nmap-6.0.0
./configure
make
make install

Re: Nmap 6 Released

It is the entire suite including zenmap. I have not had a problem with the new suite even though I have not tested the gui much.  Command line works great.  Scanning udp seems to be faster (1-65535) but YMMV...

Re: Nmap 6 Released

Give this a try, pretty much what Agoonie recommended:
http://www.marshalgraham.com/2012/05/in ... -5-r2.html

Just tried it and it worked like a champ.  Note that it will be removed from the backtrack app menus, so you will need to re-add if you need to.  Otherwise running zenmap from the terminal will work fine as well as running nmap.

You will want to get used to running nmap from the terminal rather than zenmap, you will be able to run the scripts and such from Zen but you will just be going back and forth to the terminal to pull up samples and such, and you can dump data directly from the terminal to another app or export to a file all in one command.

Re: Nmap 6 Released

Got it installed on BT5R2 (thx for the instructions), but tried updating my copy on one of my Windows laptops and Trend Micro WFBS really doesn't like nping.exe.  I even added the Nmap folder to the exclusions list as well as the path to nping.exe itself - no go - still deletes it.  Oh well, at least I have BT5R2 on a VM that works.

Re: Nmap 6 Released

I haven't installed it on backtrack yet, but I found these instructions for my debian box, and what I like is they create a dpkg file for install.

http://scottlinux.com/2012/05/22/instal ... ntu-linux/

I didn't remove anything first.

  Code:
sudo apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev checkinstall
wget http://nmap.org/dist/nmap-6.00.tar.bz2
tar xvf nmap-6.00.tar.bz2
cd nmap-6.00/
./configure --without-liblua # Configure without liblua, as this causes problems in Debian and Ubuntu
make
sudo checkinstall
