hardscan 1.0

Utility to detect open ports if netstat may be compromised

Hardscan is a local netstat replacement that scans for open ports by binding to each of them and attempting to handshake with itself. If the handshake fails, it is likely that some hidden process is using the port. This utility is meant to be useful in a situation where you may have been rootkitted, rendering the output of netstat and other security tools untrustworthy.
