Name        : nmap
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 5.21
Release     : 1.fc12
URL         : http://nmap.org/
Summary     : Network exploration tool and security scanner
Description :
Nmap is a utility for network exploration or security auditing.  It supports
ping scanning (determine which hosts are up), many port scanning techniques
(determine what services the hosts are offering), and TCP/IP fingerprinting
(remote host operating system identification). Nmap also offers flexible target
and port specification, decoy scanning, determination of TCP sequence
predictability characteristics, reverse-identd scanning, and more.

Update Information:

- Fixed an error that occurred when UDP scan was combined with version scan.  -
Fixed a bug in http.lua that could lead to an assertion failure.  - Fixed
handing of nameserver entries in /etc/resolv.conf so it could handle entries
containing more than 16 bytes, which can occur with IPv6 addresses.  - Fixed a
bug with the decoding of NMAP OID component values greater than 127  - Fixed a
bug in traceroute that could lead to a crash  - Fixed a crash when filtering
with inroute: in scans without traceroute data  - Fixed a bug that could cause
an infinite loop ("Unable to find listening socket in get_rpc_results") in RPC
scan  - and lots of other bug fixes and new features
