Probing Your Box
Tuesday, November 22, 2005
Get your mind out of the gutter you degenerate! I was talking about your computer box. Sygate has a Security Scan that you can now implement when online to see what kind of information from your computer is visible. After a quick scan, it will try to determine what services you are running, what your computer name is, your OS, browser and IP. Not totally conclusive and nothing in depth like an nmap scan but good for a quick lookup if you are on a public computer and want to find out some more info on the box you are surfing on.
