FazPort – Advanced Perl Port Scanner in Linux
There are many hidden and sensitive services that are run on unidentified ports. For eg., the geeksforgeeks.org domain can run the MySQL database on port 5143. So we usually don’t visit the uncommon ports. So to get the list of open ports on the target website we have an automated tool named FazPort. FazPort tool is developed in the Python language and it performs one by one port scanning from starting with an initial value till the end value encounters. This can help in getting the hidden services on the target domain and test that services for Security Flaws. FazPort tool is available on GitHub and it’s free, open-source to use.

Working with FazPort Tool on Kali Linux OS
Example/Usage: Scan geeksforgeeks.org for Open Ports
perl fazport.pl Enter Website : geeksforgeeks.org Enter Start Port : 1 Enter End Port : 7000
Tool will be checking the ports one by one from 1 to 7000.
We have got the open port 80 which is HTTP port.
One more open port is been detected by the tool.
These open ports may run some sensitive service that must not be accessible on the internet. So if we detect the open ports and visit the website on the specific port number, then there may be a chance of getting some critical data about the target website.
