Forum Thread: NMAP Scandal

NMAP Scandal

Just wanted to give a heads up to everyone. The newest release of nmap was released last month; be sure to update your software. Most importantly, DO NOT download NMap from any other place besides Fyodor's www.insecure.org.

In early June, it was discovered that Sourceforge STOLE the software from Fyodor, a move that has the father of nmap incredibly upset. The possibility of of legal action against the website is quite possible, if not likely. Spread the word!

Or, as is more likely, through the Kali Repos.

Don't ever add anything else to the sources.list file, just as a note. Chances are you'll mess up your Kali System pretty bad. Do you want that? No, you don't. Good!

who's talking about sources? I said update your software. How you do it is up to you

Greetings! What am I looking at or is this a FYI?
SourceForge the code repository? or Some other entity?

sourceforge is a website you can download a wide array of software from. This is an FYI/heads up for newbs in particular, running a Windows machine.

I think insecure is the company behind it or something...

official website could be better option?
