Seasoned attackers, and even some amateur cyber-vandals, find sport in trying to scan servers and hijack them at the same time. Firewalls and Intrusion Detection/Prevention systems can help, but if a single tool could truly stop all potential attacks, the Internet intrusion industry wouldn’t even exist.
Portspoof presents various service signatures on some or all available ports, making it very difficult to discover which services are actually running on the computer. The application can simulate more than 8,000 signatures and has the ability to throw a couple of exploits back at the scanning computer.
