Brief Description 

    

Sfind.A poses a security risk to the computer where it is present. Though these programs are legal and useful tools when they are appropriately used, a hacker could take advantage of them in order to carry out malicious actions.

Sfind.A allows to carry out a port scanning in remote computers. In addition, it offers some functions in order to check known vulnerabilities in Windows IIS (Internet Information Server) servers.

Sfind.A is not a risk by itself, but it could allow a malicious user to select a server to be attacked.
