All Services: How many ports does each service test?
Different level of services will allow for different total numbers of ports to be scanned.
- The PCI Scan Control Service scan tests up to a total of 65,535 TCP ports - the total number of ports
available on your system.
- The HackerProof service will scan the first 1024 ports on your system. This is a targeted
selection of the most commonly used (and commonly attacked) ports.*
*Note that most services run on the reserved ports below 1024 and security industry experts agree that these are the most commonly targeted ports.
