8.125. nmap

Updated nmap packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The nmap packages provide a network exploration utility and a security scanner.

Bug Fixes

Previously, the debuginfo file for the ncat utility was missing in the nmap debuginfo package. Consequently, debugging and analysis of unexpected terminations could not be done properly. This update ensure the missing file is present in the package, thus fixing this bug.
In a previous version, the ncat utility failed to write its session data to an output file when the used protocol was UDP. This update provides a patch, which ensures that the data are properly written in the described scenario, thus fixing this bug.
Users of nmap are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
