Script Output

PORT     STATE SERVICE     REASON  VERSION
3780/tcp open  ssl/nexpose syn-ack NeXpose NSC 0.6.4
| nexpose-brute:
|   Accounts
|     nxadmin:nxadmin - Valid credentials
|   Statistics
|_    Performed 5 guesses in 1 seconds, average tps: 5

As the Nexpose application enforces account lockout after 4 incorrect login
attempts, the script performs only 3 guesses per default. This can be
altered by supplying the <code>brute.guesses</code> argument a different
value or 0 (zero) to guess the whole dictionary.
