    Cracker tries to scan ports to find out which of them are open.
    Because the administrator of computer can enter the hacker's Internet
    protocol (IP) address into the suspect list, that is why cracker's
    find , it is wise to conduct scanning from computer other than his
    own. To this end, crackers set up Web sites on free servers (Free Web
    Hosting providers) that allow them to use PHP and PERL scripts. Free
    Servers (Free Web Hosting Providers) usually do not require personal
    data to be provided during the registration, but even if they do,
    cracker can simply supply and made up data because no one is going to
    check them.

    I don't see any point. Its just that those who cannot compete with the free guys are probably with you

    .. so whats the whole point of this post?

    And where did you get that port scanning story? It is bogus.
    Its not like, if you have one port open you will be hacked and all. Thats what a FIREWALL is for.

    Plus, why would you need a host to scan a port?
