Download Website 29 Jan 09:59 Nmap Security Scanner 5.50


Nmap ("Network Mapper") is a utility for network exploration, administration, and security auditing. It uses IP packets in novel ways to determine which hosts are available online (host discovery), which TCP/UDP ports are open (port scanning), and what applications and services are listening on each port (version detection). It can also identify remote host OS and device types via TCP/IP fingerprinting. Nmap offers flexible target and port specifications, decoy/stealth scanning for firewall and IDS evasion, and highly optimized timing algorithms for fast scanning.

Release Notes: Nping packet probing and analysis tool has been added. Nmap Scripting Engine has been enhanced, and many new NSE scripts and libraries have been added (the new totals are 177 and 54, respectively). Many OS fingerprints and version detection signatures have been added, bringing the totals to 2,982 and 7,319, respectively. Zenmap GUI has been made faster when handling giant enterprise networks, and some new features have been added to it (script selection interface, printing support, and more).

Download No website 29 Jan 09:59 flexmock 0.7.0


Flexmock is a mock/stub/spy library for Python. Its API is inspired by a Ruby library of the same name. However, it is not a goal of Python Flexmock to be a clone of the Ruby version. Instead, the focus is on providing full support for testing Python programs and making the creation of fake objects as unobtrusive as possible. Flexmock’s design focuses on simplicity and intuitiveness. This means that the API is as lean as possible, though a few convenient short-hand methods are provided to aid brevity and readability. Flexmock declarations are structured to read more like English sentences than API calls, and it is possible to chain them together in any order to achieve high degree of expressiveness in a single line of code.

Release Notes: This release added better error handling for trying to mock builtins, a simple test harness for running on multiple versions, and test runners. Unicode arg formatting was fixed. It is now impossible to mock non-existent methods. flexmock teardown can now take varargs (for better runner integration).
