LIGATT Security International, a cyber security company, said its online vulnerability scanner, AmIHackerProof.com, had been the most used online security audit service this week after Cyber Security Expert, Gregory Evans appeared on CNN Saturday. Evans is a computer security consultant with the firm.
AmIHackerProof.com has the capability to detect vulnerabilities on a person’s computer or network that hackers would use to access your computer.
The online web service had over 205,128 people who performed vulnerability scans and out of those scans over 40,221 registered in a 4 day period. AmIHackerproof.com service is designed to benefit consumers, small and large businesses, business professionals, as well as, IT and CTO Consultants.
The security online service offers some of the following features:
- Discover your Device – To improve performance, the website can verify that hosts (computers) are alive (online) before scanning them.
- Service Discovery – Before running any vulnerability tests, it performs a port scan on each device (computers, firewall and/or routers) to determine what services are running.
- Vulnerability Checks – There are 65,000+ ports on a computer. Every port that is found open is another chance for a hacker to gain access to your computer. If your network has five open ports, that can be five ways to gain access to your computer. Depending on the test you select, the website will scan up to 65,000 ports.
- File Searching – The site can search for file names on a scan target to verify compliance with corporate security and privacy policies. It does not read file contents.
