NMAP 7.60 has just been released and provides excellent capabilities as a vulnerability assessment tool for corporations to strengthen security by discovery of potential weaknesses and unpatched software.


Hello everyone.  I’m back from Defcon and excited to announce the new Nmap 7.60 release!  It has only been a month and a half since 7.50, but we still packed a lot into this one. One of the things I’m most excited about is ssh support.  Nmap scripts can now perform brute force SSH password cracking, query servers about what auth methods and public keys they accept, and even log in using known or discovered credentials to execute arbitrary commands.  We’re including four scripts to start out with, and it opens the door to many more future capabilities! We also have 14 new NSE scripts, and a bunch of great SMB2/SMB3 improvements

Nmap 7.60 source code and binary packages for Linux, Windows, and Mac are available for free download from the usual spot:
