Do you need a port scanner for Windows 7? A port scanner can help you to secure your system and check if there are any open ports that could be used to gain access to your system. Therefore, I highly recommend to download a port scanner and try it yourself.

According to BitDefender a major vulnerability of the Internet Explorer and Adobe PDF Reader are responsible for some major hacker attacks on Google, Adobe and 20 other technology companies. Microsoft is now investigating the case and will hopefully soon release a hotfix that will be posted here as soon as it is available. It is recommended to use a different browser in the meantime (e.g. Opera).
A security researcher of Insecure.org found an exploit in Windows 7 that can be abused to crash systems on a LAN (Local Area Network). The security flaw has been found in the SMB protocol that is responsible for shared access to printers, files, etc. He suggest to turn off file/printer sharing and close all SMB ports.
