Theoretical Question
O.K. here comes theoreticaly if you were running a windows box and were hacked via a trojan or an exploit could you be framed by the person hacking you IE they call the cops on you for kiddie porn and the person that hacked you was browsing it through your box wuld it or would it not appear on your hd. Just some musings I had when thinking aboot fire walls etc.:confused:

The reason I ask this is I DLed superscan and testing it to see how it compared to nmap it offered me the option to surf the web I assume through the ports on the computer I scanned.

Theoretically yeah, but you would really have to know what you're doing to remove ALL traces of what you were up to. You'd have to scub every single log in the windows machine and probably even the router upstream. Proxy surfing through someone elses connection is going to leave traces all over the place, especially your ip address. Plus it's questionable whether the authorities would really do anything about it, especially since some random person calls them up to report them surfing for kiddie pr0n. Chances are more likely that you would miss something and you'd be the one doing 5-10 in federal prison. Try explaining that your new cell mate "bubba".

BTW, I would be careful who I scanned with that thing, as alot of people don't take to kindly to it and neither does your ISP.

THANKS itjust occurred to me when the scanner gave the option but it would still need a server running to connect to neat little scanner but typical m$ Style nice gui but not half the options of nmap.
