Does anyone recommend a util for scanning my own ports to check for security holes/trojans.

I'm using Tiny Personal Firewall 2.0.15 and it has picked up a lot of activity from the Dal.net servers. I dont use irc so can only assume I may have a Trojan somewhere. Theres also a lot of incoming TCP connection attempts from other servers.

I run NAV 2002 and it hasnt picked anything up. I dloaded Swat It and have also run that, it doesnt find any trojans.

Cheers.

Happens all the time. I used to get anywhere between 5 to 50 of these per day when I had Norton FW installed.

(I need to find an XP-compat version of that, been too long with a FW...)

The best and most complete program to scan for security holes is Nessus (www.nessus.org). It not only does portscanning, but also looks for a large number of exploits. It does require access to a real operating system.
