Nmap 5.50 Released

A new update of one of the handlers' favourite tool was released today. "A primary focus of this release is the Nmap Scripting Engine, which has allowed Nmap to expand up the protocol stack and take network discovery to the next level. Nmap can now query all sorts of application protocols, including web servers, databases, DNS servers, FTP, and now even Gopher servers!"

Check out the change log here for the list of all changes and new features. The new update is available as binary packages for Linux, Mac and Windows as well as the source code can be downloaded here.
