SYN Stealth Scan Timing percentage decreasing, time remaining increasing #1772
The scan has been running for approximately 24 hours now, and currently appears stuck on the 'SYN Stealth Scan Timing'. The time is consistent and reasonable, however, the scanner now appears to be increasing the amount of time required and decreasing the percentage done as shown below:
I find this behaviour to happen not infrequently when doing large port scans but I'm still unsure as to what causes this behaviour and what I can do to prevent it from occuring.
If it makes any difference, some of the targets are behind a CDN that's likely blocked us from some of the hosts.
Any suggetions greatly appreciated.
Same scan run, but this time, the command
This time, after several hours, the process hangs at 'Initiating NSE' and does not provide output for several hours. After this, 'enter' is pressed on session and a seg-fault is triggered.
