Description Frank Büttner 2017-08-02 01:28:36 EDT
Change log:
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.  Mostly because we have such an awesome GSoC
team of 8 students and mentors working on so many cool projects.  The
program hasn't even ended yet, but much of their work has already been
integrated into this release.

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!  This was the product of three summers of GSoC students
building on each other's work until we finally have something portable
(works on Linux, Windows, Mac, etc.) and reliable enough to include.  Mad
props to the students Devin Bjelland (2014), Sergey Khegay (2016), and
Evangelos Deirmentzoglou (2017) as well as their mentors Patrick Donnelly
and Fotis "Ithilgore" Hantzis!

Oh, we also have 14 (!) new NSE scripts, and a bunch of great SMB2/SMB3
improvements by Paulino Calderon.  This release also includes our new Npcap
0.93 which resolves an issue where the Microsoft Windows 10 Creators Update
was breaking Npcap and impairing Nmap functionality.  There's a lot more,
so I'll end this email with the full list.

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


If you find any bugs in this release, please let us know on the Nmap Dev
list or bug tracker as described at https://nmap.org/book/man-bugs.html.

Here is the full list of significant changes since Nmap 7.50:

• [Windows] Updated the bundled Npcap from 0.91 to 0.93, fixing several
issues with installation and compatibility with the Windows 10 Creators

• [NSE][GH#910] NSE scripts now have complete SSH support via libssh2,
including password brute-forcing and running remote commands, thanks to the
combined efforts of three Summer of Code students: [Devin Bjelland, Sergey
Khegay, Evangelos Deirmentzoglou]

• [NSE] Added 14 NSE scripts from 6 authors, bringing the total up to 579!
They are all listed at https://nmap.org/nsedoc/, and the summaries are

   - ftp-syst sends SYST and STAT commands to FTP servers to get system
   version and connection information. [Daniel Miller]
   - [GH#916] http-vuln-cve2017-8917 checks for an SQL injection
   vulnerability affecting Joomla! 3.7.x before 3.7.1. [Wong Wai Tuck]
   - iec-identify probes for the IEC 60870-5-104 SCADA protocol. [Aleksandr
   Timorin, Daniel Miller]
   - [GH#915] openwebnet-discovery retrieves device identifying information
   and number of connected devices running on openwebnet protocol. [Rewanth
   - puppet-naivesigning checks for a misconfiguration in the Puppet CA
   where naive signing is enabled, allowing for any CSR to be automatically
   signed. [Wong Wai Tuck]
   - [GH#943] smb-protocols discovers if a server supports dialects NT LM
   0.12 (SMBv1), 2.02, 2.10, 3.00, 3.02 and 3.11. This replaces the old
   smbv2-enabled script. [Paulino Calderon]
   - [GH#943] smb2-capabilities lists the supported capabilities of
   SMB2/SMB3 servers. [Paulino Calderon]
   - [GH#943] smb2-time determines the current date and boot date of SMB2
   servers. [Paulino Calderon]
   - [GH#943] smb2-security-mode determines the message signing
   configuration of SMB2/SMB3 servers. [Paulino Calderon]
   - [GH#943] smb2-vuln-uptime attempts to discover missing critical
   patches in Microsoft Windows systems based on the SMB2 server uptime.
   [Paulino Calderon]
   - ssh-auth-methods lists the authentication methods offered by an SSH
   server. [Devin Bjelland]
   - ssh-brute performs brute-forcing of SSH password credentials. [Devin
   - ssh-publickey-acceptance checks public or private keys to see if they
   could be used to log in to a target. A list of known-compromised key pairs
   is included and checked by default. [Devin Bjelland]
   - ssh-run uses user-provided credentials to run commands on targets via
   SSH. [Devin Bjelland]

• [NSE] Removed smbv2-enabled, which was incompatible with the new SMBv2/3
improvements. It was fully replaced by the smb-protocols script.

• [Ncat][GH#446] Added Datagram TLS (DTLS) support to Ncat in connect
(client) mode with --udp --ssl. Also added Application Layer Protocol
Negotiation (ALPN) support with the --ssl-alpn option. [Denis Andzakovic,
Daniel Miller]

• Updated the default ciphers list for Ncat and the secure ciphers list for
Nsock to use "!aNULL:!eNULL" instead of "!ADH". With the addition of ECDH
ciphersuites, anonymous ECDH suites were being allowed. [Daniel Miller]

• [NSE][GH#930] Fix ndmp-version and ndmp-fs-info when scanning Veritas
Backup Exec Agent 15 or 16. [Andrew Orr]

• [NSE][GH#943] Added new SMB2/3 library and related scripts. [Paulino

• [NSE][GH#950] Added wildcard detection to dns-brute. Only hostnames that
resolve to unique addresses will be listed. [Aaron Heesakkers]

• [NSE] FTP scripts like ftp-anon and ftp-brute now correctly handle
TLS-protected FTP services and use STARTTLS when necessary. [Daniel Miller]

• [NSE][GH#936] Function url.escape no longer encodes so-called
"unreserved" characters, including hyphen, period, underscore, and tilde,
as per RFC 3986. [nnposter]

• [NSE][GH#935] Function http.pipeline_go no longer assumes that persistent
connections are supported on HTTP 1.0 target (unless the target explicitly
declares otherwise), as per RFC 7230. [nnposter]

• [NSE][GH#934] The HTTP response object has a new member, version, which
contains the HTTP protocol version string returned by the server, e.g.
"1.0". [nnposter]

• [NSE][GH#938] Fix handling of the objectSID Active Directory attribute by
ldap.lua. [Tom Sellers]

• [NSE] Fix line endings in the list of Oracle SIDs used by
oracle-sid-brute. Carriage Return characters were being sent in the
connection packets, likely resulting in failure of the script. [Anant

• [NSE][GH#141] http-useragent-checker now checks for changes in HTTP
status (usually 403 Forbidden) in addition to redirects to indicate
forbidden User Agents. [Gyanendra Mishra]

Enjoy this new release and please do let us know if you find any problems!
