Vulnerability Scanning

Vulnerability scans can generate a great deal of traffic and, in some cases, can even result in denial of service conditions on many network devices, so caution must be exercised before making use of mass vulnerability scanners on a penetration test.

Vulnerability Scanning with Nmap

>cd /usr/share/nmap/scripts/
ls -l *vuln*

We will see in the output that not only did Nmap will find if the server is vulnerable; it also retrieved the admin'ʹs password hash.

>nmap -v -p 80 --script=http-vuln-cve2010-2861
>nmap -v -p 21 --script=ftp-anon.nse
>nmap -v -p 139, 445 --script=smb-security-mode

For example, you can use nmap data to verify that all domain web servers have been patched against CVE-2011-319240, an Apache denial of service vulnerability.

>nmap -v -p 80 --script=http-vuln-cve2011-3192­‐210
