[Sep 9, 2006] nxscan released, containing the MS06-040
vulnerability check. Sorry for the delay but this was a
major code overhaul - further updates should be much easier now.
Meanwhile I've also added in some requested features such as random
order scanning plus OS and NETBIOS name detection.
[Aug 15, 2005] noxscan released. As usual this is
working for us but standard disclaimer applies. It is still fast enough
for us - It should do a class-B network in well under 10 minutes. At
this time it will report a lot of inconclusives for MS05-039 and I hope
to improve that soon. Meanwhile, what it reports as vulnerable seems
quite reliable for us - no false positives reported.
gcc -o nxscan nxscan.c
Should compile on most
UNIX platforms, tested with gcc on Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris (with
Scanning a large list of
IPs or IP ranges
just add them on the command line, OR:
- save list to file (one IP address or range per line)
cat iplist | xargs nxscan > results.txt
On fast networks the default settings should work, but you may catch a
few more if you increase the timeouts with -r and -c (to, say, 3000ms
each) - obviously this slows down the overall scan.
Intended for use in self-scan or automated registration systems with
vulnerability scanning. -s switch will only scan the first IP listed,
with a positive return code if vulnerability detected, otherwise
Note: although these tools
work for us, they are unsupported and there is no guarantee of their
performance or accuracy.
