hi @adriandelk, i was wondering, in the nmap module in the beginning. There is a section where one is meant to do and agressive scan against localhost. The next task goes something like ‘there is a port that did not show up in our scans until now, try scanning for port 8025’

which then shows as open, my question is how come that it was not shown in the aggressive scan?
Are there certain times this happens, how would we discover those cases etc?
Thanks in advance!
