Microsoft Tightens the Noose on Raw Sockets - Many of us were annoyed last year when Microsoft intentionally broke raw sockets on Windows XP, while leaving the feature enabled in Windows 2003. MS is well known for maintaining the upgrade treadmill by dubious means such gratuitous file format incompatibilities, but this is a new low. People pay $299.99 for WinXP Pro with working raw sockets, then MS cripples their systems and demands $1019 (WS2003 retail price) to return the functionality. Of course Microsoft claims this change is necessary for security. That is funny, since all of the other major platforms Nmap supports (e.g. Mac OS X, Linux, *BSD) offer raw sockets and yet they haven't become the wasp nest of spambots, worms, and spyware that infest so many Windows boxes
