There are several ways to manually confirm the results:

1- Using nmap:

nmap -sV -sC [IP]

2- Using SSLyze

sslyze --sslv2 [IP]

3- Using Google SSLScan

sslscan --no-failed [IP]

4- Directly with openSSL

openssl s_client -no_tls1 -no_ssl3 -connect [IP]

5- Externally-accessible hosts can be tested with


Make sure you have SSLv2 enabled on your machine. For more information, please see http://www.softwaresecured.com/2016/03/01/how-to-confirm-whether-you-are-vulnerable-to-the-drown-attack/
