Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Whatever, Ash.
ShieldsUP is a DDOS waiting to happen. (Or not waiting at all: who knows?)

(Its usage is also against the AUP of most ISPs - portscanning anything for any reason is usually verboten. You probably won't get caught, though.)

But hey, it's EASY, so therefore it's GOOD.

Gibson knows loads about hard disks and next to bugger-all about security.

I don't genuflect before his image.

Use P2P for legitimate purposes!
New Sorry Ash, but Peter is right here.
New I acknowledge those valld criticisms.
But I also accept that - until some DDOS affair is definitely traced back to his site / or / ISPs more uniformly trap port scans.. (or at least sequential ones of this magnitude) -- it's still probably the closest thing to nmap that the clueless will actually use.

And it does, at least - flag the wide-open machines. The user may not grok much, but seeing a lot of red boxes -- just may prompt a few to ask someone to tell them the obvious.

Anyone who manages to close some of those ports, finally - is one less zombie. And isn't that what we mainly bitch about? the millions who don't even know that they don't know shit?


Then again.. likely it is merely Pearls before swine.
Maybe if grc closed its doors, there'd be no perceptible change in the zombie population. But since we can't measure that, anyway - -

Like many lawyers, he's overly fond of argument, even when in agreement. Not that anyone here would be into that...
