Nmap NSE net: nfs-ls

CVSS Base Vector:

Detection Type:

Attempts to get useful information about files from NFS exports. The output is intended to resemble the output of 'ls'. The script starts by enumerating and mounting the remote NFS exports. After that it performs an NFS GETATTR procedure call for each mounted point in order to get its ACLs. For each mounted directory the script will try to list its file entries with their attributes. Since the file attributes shown in the results are the result of GETATTR, READDIRPLUS, and similar procedures, the attributes are the attributes of the local filesystem. These access permissions are shown only with NFSv3: * Read: Read data from file or read a directory. * Lookup: Look up a name in a directory (no meaning for non-directory objects). * Modify: Rewrite existing file data or modify existing directory entries. * Extend: Write new data or add directory entries. * Delete: Delete an existing directory entry. * Execute: Execute file (no meaning for a directory). SYNTAX: nfs.version: number If set overrides the detected version of nfs nfs-ls.human: If set to '1' or 'true', shows file sizes in a human readable format with suffixes like 'KB' and 'MB'. nfs-ls.maxfiles: If set, limits the amount of files returned by the script when using the 'nfs-ls.dirlist' argument. If set to 0 or less, all files are shown. The default value is 10. nfs-ls.time: Specifies which one of the last mac times to use in the files attributes output. Possible values are: - 'm': last modification time (mtime) - 'a': last access time (atime) - 'c': last change time (ctime) The default value is 'm' (mtime). mount.version: number If set overrides the detected version of mountd rpc.protocol: table If set overrides the preferred order in which protocols are tested. (ie. 'tcp', 'udp')

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
