Nmap-scripts cleanup

I’ve cleaned up the Nmap scripts page a bit to better reflect reality. Most of the scripts published on that page have been commited to the Nmap development release. I’m actively working on getting the remainder commited to. Once the scripts have been commited, they’re no longer maintained here. So, in order to try them out I recommend you to install the latest development release of Nmap. In order to do so, follow the steps outlined here.

kerberos-get-realm script

I created a new Nmap script today that attempts to discover the Kerberos realm and the server time. It does this by sending an incorrect AS-REQ request to the server. The Microsoft implementation of Kerberos responds with an error packet containing the correct Realm name. On systems with other implementation, the server time alone is returned. The script works against both TCP and UDP. It’s available for download at the dedicated nmap-scripts page over here.
