NMAP Example To Test For Security Holes

This will get you blocked from the Internet:

nmap 127.0.0.1 -sA -O -r -sV -A -p1-65535

… unless you live in England (and most places outside of the USA), then this command is illegal (well, if you put a real IP in there). Very enlightening if you run it against your own systems. For fun you could through in a “-S 127.0.0.1 -e eth0″ for even crazier results. For further reading, see http://nmap.org/book/man.html
