comment Nmap does not detect Linux Mint
@NicBarker Nmap 6.47 is a year old, too. We just put out a series of BETA releases that are actually quite stable. We'll be doing another fingerprint update before the next major release, too. Nmap-announce mailing list will keep you in the loop: nmap.org/mailman/listinfo/announce

comment Nmap does not detect Linux Mint
Using -sN, -sA or other scan types will not help: OS detection uses only TCP and UDP probes, so you must use a scan type that can distinguish an open TCP port from a closed one. Usually -sSU is the best combination, but even with out -sU, Nmap will guess at a UDP port, hoping to hit an unused (closed) one.

comment Nmap write output only when all scanned ports are open
Parsers for other languages: Nmap::Parser for Perl, Ndiff (included with Nmap) for Python 2, python-nmap for Python 3, parse-nmap.ps1 for PowerShell.

This is hardly a complete answer, but cvedetails.com is an awesome resource for searching CVEs.

comment explanation of an nmap behaviour
-sV should not make a difference, since it does not run unless -sS or -sT detect the port to be open. Maybe there is some instability in the service that makes it not available all the time?

@Peteris not for hunt-and-peck typists.

comment nmap script with credentials
@yuda41 no particular file extension is needed. But some versions had a bug where absolute paths could not be used. Try using -d to get debug output, and use relative paths.

revised Why companies do not simply use hackers' tools to find their own vulnerabilities prior to the release of their software?
re-tag, focus on relevant tools to finding vulnerabilities as opposed to exploiting them.
