Date: Sun, 19 Jul 2009 14:51:07 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: owl-users@...ts.openwall.com, announce@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Nmap 5.00; new Owl ISO Hi, Nmap 5.00 has been released earlier this week, and we got it into Owl-current (on the release day, in fact). This is a major new version of Nmap, featuring things such as Ncat (an even more powerful remake of the famous netcat tool, which we previously had represented in Owl with OpenBSD's remake) and Nmap Scripting Engine (NSE). You may try out the latter by running "nmap -A -T4" against a host. Please check out the official release announcement here: http://nmap.org/5/ Question/poll to the users: now that we have Nmap's Ncat, should we keep OpenBSD's netcat (invocable on Owl as "nc") in Owl as well or should we drop that? In general, with few exceptions, Owl has been avoiding duplicate functionality in the official "base system" so far. Please comment on owl-users. We have also released a new ISO-9660 image of Owl-current (for 32-bit x86 this time), including Nmap 5.00 (with our usual changes for privilege reduction and with some post-release fixes) usable right off the live CD (as well as installable indeed). Besides Nmap 5.00, other updated packages since the 2009/07/07 ISO include chkconfig, Postfix, and the DHCP suite. The new ISO is already available under /pub/Owl/current/iso (or equivalent) on most of our mirrors: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/DOWNLOAD.shtml -rw-r--r-- 1 ftp ftp 441708178 Jul 18 18:06 Owl-current-20090718-i586.iso.gz Alexander P.S. Those curious what we're patching in Nmap 5.00 may gain this secret knowledge here: http://cvsweb.openwall.com/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/Owl/packages/nmap/ -- To unsubscribe, e-mail owl-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
