Technical Details

This program is a TCP port scanner by WinEggDrop. Like most riskware products, this tool can be used for both malicious and non-malicious purposes.

It can legitimately be used to scan for open TCP ports in a certain IP address range. Network administrators usually use this to check vulnerable computers in the network, and hackers could use this to compromise systems.

The person using the tool can specify the open port it will look for and the number of threads to be employed for the scanning. They can also opt to save the scanning result in a log file.
