Synopsis :

It is possible to determine which TCP ports are open.

Description :

This plugin is a SYN 'half-open' port scanner. It shall be reasonably
quick even against a firewalled target.

Note that SYN scans are less intrusive than TCP (full connect) scans
against broken services, but they might cause problems for less robust
firewalls and also leave unclosed connections on the remote target, if
the network is loaded.

Solution :

Protect your target with an IP filter.

Risk factor :
