Hi Dmitry,

Thanks for all your input!!

I'm taking notes on all yours suggestions.

Yes, the idea for the scan engine will be a modular approach (plugins) and
all the attacks patterns, detection signatures and documentation will be
stored in XML files. So it will very easy do add new stuff.

btw, PPA checks now works in the same fashion using XML files.
