Yapscan Update: v0.7.4

I just made a minor improvement to yapscan .  Download it here .

Sid from notsosecure.com suggested that ICMP scans shouldn’t by default throw out lots of annoying messages like “STRANGE: can’t find on my host list”.  I agree.  This was more of a debugging thing anyway.  This is fixed in v0.7.4 – you can use the -v option if you still want to see them 🙂

Note that you probably won’t have seen this message unless you’re either using an old version of yapscan, or running with no retries (-r 0).  It’s recommended to always use retries for ICMP scanning incase some packets get dropped.  The default is 2 retries.
