SuperScan is a powerful connect-based TCP port scanner, pinger and hostname resolver. Released by Foundstone, its multithreaded and asynchronous techniques make this program extremely fast and versatile. SuperScan can do ping sweeps and scan any IP range. The attacker can also compile a list of target IP as a text file and use SuperScan to extract this list for scanning. The visual interface allows the attacker to view responses from connected hosts. The built in editor allows manipulation of port list and port descriptions. The advantage is that certain ports can be skipped as the ping results can be analyzed before hand to make the scan faster. The tool can be used to connect to any discovered open port using user-specified "helper" applications and then assign a custom helper application to any port. The attacker can also choose to save the scan list to a text file for future reference. The scan can be done slowly as well by controlling the transmission speed.
