The Retina MS06-040 NetApi32 Scanner is available in two versions: one that scans up to 16 systems simultaneously, and another that handles up to 256 PCs.
eEye Digital Security on Thursday unveiled free software that sniffs out PCs vulnerable to a dangerous Windows vulnerability disclosed earlier this week.
"We have released a free vulnerability assessment tool for the critical, and potentially wormable, MS06-040 vulnerability," wrote Marc Maiffret, eEye's chief hacking officer, in an e-mail. "[It] does not require administrator access to machines, so it will give IT administrators a real-world perspective on where their network stands against this attack regardless of what they think they have or have not patched," Maiffret added.
The Retina MS06-040 NetApi32 Scanner is available in two versions: one that scans up to 16 systems simultaneously, another that handles up to 256 PCs. Both downloads require an e-mail address.
