Hacker tool helps diagnose network vulnerabilities
by Donna Buenaventura / June 14, 2004 12:35 AM PDT
In reply to: News - June 14, 2004

Long a mainstay as a tool for the hacker community, Nmap is increasingly being used in network administration to identify network vulnerabilities. Nmap was previously available only for Linux and UNIX, but a Windows version of the product is now being offered, making it a more viable option for many users. NmapNT comes with three versions:

Packet95 (for Windows 95/98/Me)
PacketNT (for Windows NT)
Packet2K (for Windows 2000 and Windows XP)

NmapNT is a no-frills, easy-to-use program that can provide a wealth of useful information about your network. If you want to audit your network for vulnerabilities, use NmapNT to find the holes where hackers might sneak in. What makes this tool even better is that it’s free.

Download and installation
The NT version of Nmap is available for download at eEye Digital Security's Web site. The zipped file contains the NmapNT executable, packet drivers (which basically bypass the Windows TCP/IP stack when running NmapNT), the source code, and other files NmapNT requires to run. The download also includes a README file with some basic overview information about the Nmap port to Windows and instructions for installing the correct packet driver.

Explorer Vulnerabilities

Recent Microsoft Internet Explorer vulnerabilities leave user desktops susceptible to software that performs massive ad and spam attacks on remote systems. igxglobal offers a unique solution that protects organizations from these and other attacks.

igxglobal a provider of security solutions since 1997 with headquarters in Rocky Hill, Connecticut today announced protection from the recent Microsoft Internet Explorer vulnerability. igxglobal is making this protection available to organizations around the world at no cost.

Early in the morning of Thursday June 10, 2004, igxglobal outlined a protection plan for the recent vulnerability in Internet Explorer for its Security Anywhere clients. Given the lack of industry options, the decision was made to make the protection plan available to the industry at large. "Security Anywhere is available to organizations with users at their headquarters, home or hotel room anywhere in the world", said Thomas Duffy igxglobal's president. "We chose to offer this protection at no charge until Microsoft has the opportunity to respond to this issue as a contribution to the industry", continued Duffy.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
