Hi All,

Do any of you guys know if it's safe to run the test on this link:
http://www.pcflank.com/test.htm

The warnings at the end of the page concern me and I don't want to leave my computer vulnerable afterwards.

Thanks!

Well my personal opinion from just running it is that it didn't tell me anything I didn't already know about my network, but it didn't seem to hurt anything, it just shows you what information is visible from the outside. I don't think it will actually damage your network, that being said I do not know exactly what the structure of your network is and what security you have in place.

Thanks for checking that out for me and running the program. I don't have an extra machine laying around that I can use for benchmark tests or too check security holes with.

I'm learning about online security, and this is just a site that I ran across.
