Welcome! AuditMyPC.com is a vulnerability assessment, privacy test, research and security information site. This site was designed to promote security awareness – free of charge!
I originally started this site in 2000 and moved it to AuditMyPC.com a couple of years after. The site was created because I desired a greater understanding of security and in-depth web based programming. I was also motivated by the lack of similar sites and the need to perform remote security scans without limitations, fees or long registration requirements.
The information this site provides about your system is available to every site on the internet. The purpose here is not to scare, but to make you aware.
You’ll notice a number of unique features not found at any other site; features like PC Audits of all 65,535 (TCP / UDP) ports and user input scans that allow a visitor to test only the ports he or she needs. There have been countless browser vulnerabilities in both code and browser misconfiguration. Rather than test for every possible vulnerability, the Privacy Section attempts to test for top level vulnerabilities; vulnerabilities that when fixed, correct lower level problems as well.
The site is also the only Security Conscious site I am aware of (Security Kudos). Built into the system is the ability for the user, ISP or network administrator to block out their IP address from being audited in the future.The system also attempts to recognize proxy servers and based upon the type of proxy (transparent, cache or corporate), allow or disallow an audit. Users generally do not understand remote proxies, therefore; every attempt is made to help the user behind the scenes.
Audit My PC is working on a secure section of the site that will allow businesses to test their website (free of charge of course) for vulnerabilities beyond that of a port scan. We also have a number of other tests, such as popup blocker, browser security, internet speed tests and much more.
This site receives a large amount of traffic per day which forces us to perform extremely fast scans; the down side of this can be false readings, especially if you have a slow connection. You can reduce errors by performing multiple scans and comparing the results.
New ideas are always welcome! If you have any suggestions, comments or concerns, feel free to leave me a comment; if it’s a private matter, simply mention it in your comment and I’ll make sure it stays private. Every comment on this site is moderated (needs to be approved before being made public) to help prevent abuse.
A great deal of site enhancements have come from these suggestions, and many late nights and early mornings are spent programming these changes. I’d also like to thank Richard Lopez for my dedicated web server hosting – he made the move from IIS to Apache a lot less painful!
If you have questions, need support or would like to report bugs, leave a comment on our Help Desk and I’ll do my best to respond as soon as possible.
Enjoy the site!
