Vulnerability Scanning:

Every operating system or the services will have some vulnerabilities due to the
programming errors. These vulnerabilities are crucial for a successful hack. Bugtraq is
an excellent mailing list discussing the vulnerabilities in the various system. The
exploit  code writers write exploit codes to exploit these vulnerabilities existing in a system.
There are a number of vulnerability scanners available to scan the host for known vulnerabilities. These vulnerability scanners are very important for a network administrator to audit the network security.
Some of such vulnerability scanners include Shadow Security Scanner,Stealth HTTP Scanner, Nessus, etc. Visit vulnerabilities and exploit codes of various
operating systems. Packet storm security
( is also a nice pick.
