4.197. nmap

An updated nmap package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The nmap package provides a network exploration utility and a security scanner.

Bug Fix

Prior to this update, the output of the "nmap -h" (or "nmap --help") command did not describe all the available nmap options that begin with the "-s" or "-P" prefix. As a result, a user could have been unable to research what options can be used to perform specific tasks with nmap. With this update, the bug has been fixed so that the output of "nmap -h" now describes all the aforementioned nmap options that were previously missing from the output.
All users of nmap are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
