About PC Flank’s tests

You can easily test your system for vulnerabilities to Internet threats with
Flank’s on-line tests. PC Flank’s testing facilities consist of six on-line
tests: Quick Test, Advanced Port Scanner, Stealth Test, Browser Test, Trojans
Test and Exploits Test. As a rule each test takes no more than 3 minutes
depending on the speed of your Internet connection.

Here are the descriptions of each test:

Quick Test

This test shows how vulnerable your computer is to various Internet threats. The
test also determines if a Trojan horse already infects your system and if your
Web browser reveals personal info about you or your computer while you’re web
surfing. This test is a combined version of Advanced Port Scanner, Browser Test
and Trojans Test. The test take less than three minutes. Afterwards you will see
a full report including recommendations on how to improve the security of your
system. This test is recommended to rookie users and users who do not have
enough time to pass all the tests. To start the test click

Stealth Test

With the help of the Stealth test you can determine if your computer is visible
to the others on the Internet. You can also use this test to determine if your
firewall is successful in making ports of your system stealthed. To determine if
your computer is visible on the Internet the Stealth test utilizes five scanning
techniques: TCP ping, TCP NULL, TCP FIN, TCP XMAS and UDP scanning. To start the

used during the test: TCP connect scanning (standard) or TCP SYN scanning. You
can also select what ports of your system you want to scan: desired ports or
range of ports, typical vulnerable and Trojan ports, 20 random ports or All
ports. This test is recommended to experienced users. To start the test click

Exploits Test

This test will detect how vulnerable your computer is to exploits attacks. This
test can be also used to test firewalls and routers for stability and reactions
to unexpected packets. Most of the exploits are in fact denial-of-service
attacks and if your system is unable to pass this examination it may crash or
reboot. To start the test click
