Hiding information from nmap
Authored by: datasmid on Apr 20, '06 02:47:52AM
This hint was verified to work on MacOSX Tiger 10.4.6 scanned with nmap 3.93:

If you have only one port open and one port closed NMap outputs:

Running Apple Mac OS  X 10.3.X|10.4.X, IBM AIX 4.X, Microsoft Windows 2003/.NET|NT/2K/XP
That still leaves a big deal of guesswork for the scanner.

If you also run in stealth-mode without any open port (nothing in the Sharing PreferencePanel, then nmap cannot tell anything about your Mac.
