    Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer is good but I dislike them. It only search only Microsoft security. Not another stuffs. I like Saint, Zone Alarm, BlackICE, Retina, Iris. Seucirty tools are NOT cheap!

    Thumbs up Languard from GFI

    http://www.gfi.com/lannetscan/index.htm
    "Languard" will only run on NT/2000 (I have not tried on XP), but also looks for vulnerablities. Does not work in "stealth mode", good admin. will detect you! You can scan range of IP/subnets/etc. Great evaluation tool for our network at work. Freeware.

    NMAP is NOT a security scanner...nmap is merely a port scanner or network mapper (as it says)... Although having ports open often leads to security holes, listening port by themselves have nothing to do with security...it is the application using the ports. NMAP does not test those applications, it simply tells you whether or not something is using the port.

    Of course there are many common ports that we can use to deduce what vulnerabilities may exist, but nmap will not verify this. For example...nmap may tell you that port 80 is open...but what it won't tell you is that the application using port 80 is IIS or Apache, etc. Nor will it tell you whether any vulnerabilities exist such a unicode.

    I would consider nmap more of an auditing tool...and I think you know what I meant in the first place...

    Does anybody know of some "non standard" plugin source for Nessus?
