.I don't know if this sites where linked on this forum, and sens i'm to lazy to look I'll post this anyway ;)

I have found some nice sites that will test your security and in case it is loose will tell you how to tighten it up.

The first one is ShieldsUp! , it gives you the option to Test your shields and Probe your ports ( sounds dirty doesn't it :D )

The second one is hackerwhacker.com , it promises you to " See your computer the way hackers do " , but it requires registration, and when i tired to run a test it asked for my Email and written "You will get an E-Mail telling you where to go" So i got scared and ran away.

And the last one (And the coolest one) is Symantec Security Check , it gives you an option to scan for "security risks" , viruses and to "Trace a Potential Attack" , I never tested this site, so let me know if its any good.

Enjoy ;)

I tried ShieldsUp yesterday on my pc at home and I was in stealth mode. Also tried it on the corporate lan, stealth for that also. It is good to know you are somewhat secure.

I have been using ShieldsUp to test my security on my and other peoples systems for over 12 months now and find it a good way to make sure your system is secure.

I have used the Symantec Security Check a couple of times, it seemed to do a good job, but one time it said that my system was not secure and that I should use Symantec's firewall program. I use a router with an inbuilt firewall.

That was directly after I had done a test with ShieldsUp that said it was in stealth mode...

Woo hoo! Windows XP running only NAV:

Attempting connection to your computer. . .
Shields UP! is now attempting to contact the Hidden Internet Server within your PC. It is likely that no one has told you that your own personal computer may now be functioning as an Internet Server with neither your knowledge nor your permission. And that it may be serving up all or many of your personal files for reading, writing, modification and even deletion by anyone, anywhere, on the Internet!

Your Internet port 139 does not appear to exist!
One or more ports on this system are operating in FULL STEALTH MODE! Standard Internet behavior requires port connection attempts to be answered with a success or refusal response. Therefore, only an attempt to connect to a nonexistent computer results in no response of either kind. But YOUR computer has DELIBERATELY CHOSEN NOT TO RESPOND (that's very cool!) which represents advanced computer and port stealthing capabilities. A machine configured in this fashion is well hardened to Internet NetBIOS attack and intrusion.

Unable to connect with NetBIOS to your computer.
All attempts to get any information from your computer have FAILED. (This is very uncommon for a Windows networking-based PC.) Relative to vulnerabilities from Windows networking, this computer appears to be VERY SECURE since it is NOT exposing ANY of its internal NetBIOS networking protocol over the Internet.

Firewall: 2Wire HomePortal. :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
