    uhm.... could you please explain how anyone can *proactively* detect
    recon scans? Is that through some ESP plugin?

    100% no false positives, 'proactive' intrusion detection, intrusion
    prevention products that can 'sense' when you are 'about' to scan, and
    'cloak' your network for you..... oh wow, I guess we're not in Kansas
