Pulls back information about the remote system from the registry. Getting all of the information requires an administrative account, although a user account will still get a lot of it. Guest probably won't get any, nor will anonymous. This goes for all operating systems, including Windows 2000. Windows Vista disables remote registry access by default, so unless it was enabled, this script won't work. If you know of more information stored in the Windows registry that could be interesting, post a message to the nmap-dev mailing list and I (Ron Bowes) will add it to my todo list. Adding new checks to this is extremely easy. WARNING: I have experienced crashes in 'regsvc.exe' while making registry calls against a fully patched Windows 2000 system I've fixed the issue that caused it, but there's no guarantee that it (or a similar vuln in the same code) won't show up again. Since the process automatically restarts, it doesn't negatively impact the system, besides showing a message box to the user. SYNTAX: smbbasic: Forces the authentication to use basic security, as opposed to 'extended security'. Against most modern systems, extended security should work, but there may be cases where you want to force basic. There's a chance that you'll get better results for enumerating users if you turn on basic authentication. smbport: Override the default port choice. If 'smbport' is open, it's used. It's assumed to be the same protocol as port 445, not port 139. Since it probably isn't possible to change Windows' ports normally, this is mostly useful if you're bouncing through a relay or something. smbsign: Controls whether or not server signatures are checked in SMB packets. By default, on Windows, server signatures aren't enabled or required. By default, this library will always sign packets if it knows how, and will check signatures if the server says to. Possible values are: - 'force': Always check server signatures, even if server says it doesn't support them (will probably fail, but is technically more secure). - 'negotiate': [default] Use signatures if server supports them. - 'ignore': Never check server signatures. Not recommended. - 'disable': Don't send signatures, at all, and don't check the server's. not recommended. More information on signatures can be found in 'smbauth.lua'. randomseed: Set to a value to change the filenames/service names that are randomly generated.
