Xprobe is an alternative to some tools which are heavily dependent upon the
usage of the TCP protocol for remote active operating system fingerprinting.

Xprobe I combines various remote active operating system fingerprinting methods
using the ICMP protocol, which were discovered during the "ICMP Usage in
Scanning" research project, into a simple, fast, efficient and a powerful way
to detect an underlying operating system a targeted host is using.

Xprobe2 is an active operating system fingerprinting tool with a different
approach to operating system fingerprinting. Xprobe2 rely on fuzzy signature
matching, probabilistic guesses, multiple matches simultaneously, and a
signature database.

Source url sould be:


This seems okay:

W: xprobe2 wrong-file-end-of-line-encoding

Other than the above everything looks okay.  I'll approve.

Thanks for the review!

Fixed Source0 and enqueued to be built.  I'll close this bug once it succeeds.

Seems to have built fine.  Added bugzilla component for xprobe2 in owners.list
file as well.
