nmap Overkill – Wayne Enterprises

I was watching Justice League: Doom again just a few hours ago. This time, I paid extra attention to the titles right in the beginning. It features the nmap scanner. The following is what you would see:

Wayne Enterprise Mainframe:- en$ nmap -v 192.168.23.10 (http://we.inc) at 2011-08-31 18.56 EDT
Machine 192.168.23.10 MIGHT actually be listening on probe port 80
Initiating Parallel DNS resolution of 1 host. at 18:56 Completed Parallel DNS resolution of 1 host. at 18.56, 0.01s elapsed

The date of the scan is 31st of August last year. I thought I had seen it for the first time, only to be disappointed that it has already been featured in nmap in movies section of nmap website. As reported on the website, nmap.org has been simply changed to we.inc. Then I paid more attention to the processes and realized that the following daemons were running:

coreaudiod, distnoted, diskarbitrationd, blued and many more. These daemons reside in the /usr/sbin directory on a Darwin box. So, there you have it, Wayne Enterprises runs on Mac OS. No wonder how Mirror Master was able to hack into the Bat Computer. Bruce must think about OpenBSD (Are you listening DC?). Being functionally paranoid as he is, OpenBSD will serve him well. Lex can kiss his Luthor Corp Key Generator good bye!

Another tidbit from the nmap scanner from the movie:

Processes 67 total, 3 running, 64 sleeping, 407 threads
Load Avg: 0.75, 0.69, 0.68 CPU Usage: 25.80% user, 5.90% sys, 68.3%idle

Oh, in addition Vmware Fusion is running as well.

As I had mentioned earlier, nmap has a dedicated page to detail instances of nmap appearing in movies. Click on the following link to get to the page. It’s pretty interesting.

nmap scan appears a lot during the titles. But, I ain’t complaining.

  1. Curious, nmap is being used on all films requiring some hackish style XD!
    As you said before: OpenBSD is the OS Bruce Wayne is searching, period

    Oh, and BTW, your “BSD Unix – Is for me?” post is simply awesome, quite a nice way to get BSD known. It’s a pity BSD is not generally known (Being the great OS it is).

    Thanks for the response before, daisuke! 🙂
