nexpose-brute.nse – Performs brute force password auditing …

Posted on Posted in Nmap - Script

Performs brute force password auditing against a Nexpose vulnerability scanner using the API 1.1.  By default it only tries three guesses per username to avoid target account lockout.

-- nmap --script nexpose-brute -p 3780 <ip>
--
-- @output
-- PORT     STATE SERVICE     REASON  VERSION
-- 3780/tcp open  ssl/nexpose syn-ack NeXpose NSC 0.6.4
-- | nexpose-brute: 
-- |   Accounts
-- |     nxadmin:nxadmin - Valid credentials
-- |   Statistics
-- |_    Performed 5 guesses in 1 seconds, average tps: 5
--
-- As the Nexpose application enforces account lockout after 4 incorrect login
-- attempts, the script performs only 3 guesses per default. This can be
-- altered by supplying the <code>brute.guesses</code> argument a different 
-- value or 0 (zero) to guess the whole dictionary.
