Ticket #433 (new defect)
Wrong port scanning report generated by nmap in UMIT
|Reported by:||dhritimanh||Owned by:||boltrix|
I run the UMIT tool from my virtual xp machine (sp1, version=2002) to my virtual Bactrack machine (both are connected through virtual network), and run the scan for detection of OS. In the Backtrack OS, i had opened port 80 as i viewing web pages in the browser. But, in the nmap report of the UMIT tool in the virtual Xp, it stated that all ports of the 1000 ports that were scanned were closed. Now, Its wrong information as we can see.
I guess what we should do is we should in some way increase the port scanning capacity of the nmap and it shouldn't be limited to a random 1000 ports. It should be comprehensive enough to atleast scan the common ports such as 80.
