Summary:
Attempts to enumerate the users on a SMTP server by issuing the VRFY, EXPN or RCPT TO commands. The goal of this script is to discover all the user accounts in the remote system. The script will output the list of user names that were found. The script will stop querying the SMTP server if authentication is enforced. If an error occurs while testing the target host, the error will be printed with the list of any combinations that were found prior to the error. The user can specify which methods to use and in which order. The script will ignore repeated methods. If not specified the script will use the RCPT first, then VRFY and EXPN. An example of how to specify the methods to use and the order is the following: 'smtp-enum-users.methods={EXPN, RCPT, VRFY}' SYNTAX: userdb: The filename of an alternate username database. smtp-enum-users.domain: Define the domain to be used in the SMTP commands unpwdb.passlimit: The maximum number of passwords 'passwords' will return (default unlimited). unpwdb.userlimit: The maximum number of usernames 'usernames' will return (default unlimited). unpwdb.timelimit: The maximum amount of time that any iterator will run before stopping. The value is in seconds by default and you can follow it with 'ms', 's', 'm', or 'h' for milliseconds, seconds, minutes, or hours. For example, 'unpwdb.timelimit=30m' or 'unpwdb.timelimit=.5h' for 30 minutes. The default depends on the timing template level (see the module description). Use the value '0' to disable the time limit. smtp-enum-users.methods: Define the methods and order to be used by the script (EXPN, VRFY, RCPT) passdb: The filename of an alternate password database.

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".
