Nmap 5.35DC1 released

"New signatures include ... an open source digital currency scheme named Bitcoin ..."

That's some sort of acknowledgment, I suppose  Wink

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

I suppose.  Somebody must have felt that Bitcoin traffic was worth finding.

OTOH, it facilitates finding Bitcoin clients, which isn't a good thing.  MITM anyone?

I brought it up on the discussion page and added it to the article. We'll have to see whether it'll fly with the people there.
