Seven network scanners test your security before the crackers do.
Atelierweb 4.04 is an accurate port scanner. It contains
a built-in database of ports, mapping "interesting"
ports to the services and known malicious programs (Trojan
horses). The scanner determines what service is listening
on a specific port based on the entries in the database.
You can update and edit the database entries. However,
with the default time-out settings, it takes more than
an hour to scan all 65,535 ports. Also, some of the
information-gathering and basic vulnerability-checking
capabilities aren't available in the evaluation version
Atelierweb is the only scanner we tested that doesn't
have a reporting capability: There's simply no option
to produce a report or save your results in any other
way. This severely limits its usefulness.
