Re: how nmap can know my firewalled servers ?



Hey guys,

Fyodor, the author of nmap, demonstrated some hacks like this at his
presentation at Shmoocon (a security conference in washington D.C.).
You can download the presentation at:

Just look through the schedule for Fyodor's name and download the
movie of his presentation. He explains why this works.

Hi all !

I know that "nmap" can show open ports. But nmap also shows my
firewalled ports !
How?

Since some servers (like apache) are firewalled with iptables, how can
nmap know wherever
my system run the service with open port, filtered port or doesn't run
it at all ?
