IP id finder

I have been intrigued by nmap’s feature to scan a target using an idle zombie pc which has an incremental ip id. I have also been intrigued by scapy. Finally I have also been intrigued by metasploit. At first I combined nmap and metasploit and the end result was, that I was not able to get the IPIDSEQ module to work. So I turned to scapy and tried porting the metasploit module to python. It was fun and I finally employed python for something besides playing with it to learn.

python src

I’ve also finally learned why it’s nice to prepend your output with “[*]”, since I’ve been lazy with the verbose output I have just used the one from scapy to know if my script should output or shouldn’t output verbose messages. This means that the output gets cluttered. So by prepending “[*]” you can just grep the results to have a clear view of what the script is doing without the scapy stuff in between it.

Finally scapy is a real nice toy. I had to implement 0.0 code to support cidr notation. So when you for example want to scan a /24 range you can just go like: “microsoft.com/24”. isn’t that neat? Hope you enjoy it and find a way to use it. For me it was more fun to write it and learn a lot along the way, then the actual goal I wrote it for. oh btw the non-verbose output looks like:

[*] = Randomized

oh a second btw I recommend putting the timeout/waittime on 5 or something like that.
