Publisher's Description

GFI LanGuard acts as your 'virtual security consultant' on demand. Patch management is vital to your business. Network security breaches are most commonly caused by missing network patches. GFI LanGuard scans and detects network vulnerabilities before they are exposed, reducing the time required to patch machines on your network. GFI LanGuard patches Microsoft, Mac OS X, Linux and more than 60 third-party applications, and deploys both security and non-security patches.

GFI LanGuard provides a detailed analysis of the state of your network. This includes applications or default configurations posing a security risk. GFI LanGuard also gives you a complete picture of installed applications; hardware on your network; mobile devices that connect to the Exchange servers; the state of security applications (antivirus, anti-spam, firewalls, etc.); open ports; and any existing shares and services running on your machines.

This use to be a much better utility than it is now. The same could be said for the company. What use to be a small, unobtrusive, reliable program has suffered from it's own success. It gets bigger, slower, and buggier with each major release. One can only hope that GFI listens to user feedback.

Showed incorrect ports open on a test system (telnet, [was disabled] netbus [trend micro uses same port]) that even trivial scans could detect correctly. I hate false positives.

Generally a good scanner/reconiassance tool but there are a few annoying bugs. The way the options are setup in the interface are counterintuative. All the options should be in one place. Also, when NetBIOS shares are found on a target machine, sometimes when you d-click on a share.. Nothing happens. No problem with that because it's probably a problem on the targer PC but at least pop some s*** up saying "could not open share because of ..." instead of having me wait for like 2 aeons.

Also I have noticed a problem with the pass-cracking under NT/2K/XP systems, namely, you have to be REAL lucky for it to "catch on" (work) half the time. What happens is that it goes though the password-list like in 2 seconds (!) and says "password cannot be cracked". Yeah right! I wish cracking over a dial-up would take 2 seconds! LOL! This may be a problem with dial-up though, nonetheless, FIX IT! =)

On the other hand cracking on 9x systems always works for me and it's great to see that LANguard uses the old win9x vulnerability (if system is not patched) to crach 9x passwords in literally under 1 minute. This over all is a good tool that could consolidate the features (so it doesnt wind up doing what ICQ did to themselves) and fix a few bugs.

Bad password cracking. It can`t crack password on Win98 system. I haven`t tried on NT. Good info about LAN cards.

Appeared to have tons of features. Too bad they weren't very intuitive. And why were the options in the left frame clickable if clicking them didn't do anything? And where are instructions on how to fix the problems that I apparantly have? And what patches will be deployed if I click "deploy patches"? The makers of this software assume that the users know more than they might know. On the plus side, it convenietly puts an uninstall icon in the start menu like a good program should.

I checked this program out back in April (yep, 3.0 version sitting right there in their Public FTP Directory ... didnt even need a port scanner to find it) ... The PATCHES is a new feature ... I dont have the dizzy'ing problems with the interface others have, it appears straight-forward to me. I did find that the April 3.0 version found MORE "alerts" than the 2d July release though .... Overall, very good port scanner.

this program's interface makes me dizzy, so that's a minus. And i keep trying to get more information from this nauseating interface, hoping that if i double click on the items enough times, something more detailed will come up on the right side. BUT no, the right side remains the same, showing me what it scanned, and i think i'm going to go puke now. I'm just glad that there will be some mostly useless but fun information for me to look at when i get back from my good friend 'American Standard'(mr.toilet).

BTW: that's 2 points off for the 2 things that made me go visit my good friend in the first place.
