HyperTerminal Alternatives for Windows 7. If you’ve recently upgraded to Windows 7 and are wondering what happened to HyperTerminal, you’re not alone!

HyperTerminal Alternatives for Windows 7

HyperTerminal was a sweet little program that let you connect to other computers, Telnet sites, host computers, BBSs, etc using your modem or Ethernet connection. In Windows 7 and Vista, you will no longer find the HyperTer minal program. If you need HyperTerminal to control serial devices, there is a way to get it back! Also, there are several new alternatives to HyperTerminal that are probably better for secure shell access and troubleshooting modems. Windows Remote Shell Firstly, if you only need remote shell access, you can use the new Windows Remote Shell command line option in Windows 7 and Vista. It’s basically a SSH replacement that allows remote command line access over an encrypted connection.

Meterpreter. Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner. As many as 70% of websites have vulnerabilities that could lead to the theft of sensitive corporate data such as, credit card information and customer lists.

Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner

Hackers concentrate their efforts on web-based applications – shopping carts, forms, login pages, dynamic content, etc. Accessible 24/7 from anywhere in the world, insecure web applications provide easy access to backend corporate databases and also allow hackers to perform illegal activities using the compromised site. Web application attacks, launched on port 80/443, go straight through the firewall, past operating system and network level security, and right into the heart of your application and corporate data.

Tailor-made web applications are often insufficiently tested, have undiscovered vulnerabilities and are therefore easy prey for hackers. Find out if your website is secure before hackers download sensitive data, commit a crime by using your website as a launch pad, and endanger your business.

It is a multi-platform (Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, BSD, etc.) free and open source application which aims to make Nmap easy for beginners to use while providing advanced features for experienced Nmap users. Frequently used scans can be saved as profiles to make them easy to run repeatedly. A command creator allows interactive creation of Nmap command lines. Scan results can be saved and viewed later. Saved scan results can be compared with one another to see how they differ. You can download Zenmap (often packaged with Nmap itself) from the Nmap download page.

Introduction Utilities like Telnet and remote control programs like Symantec's PC Anywhere let you execute programs on remote systems, but they can be a pain to set up and require that you install client software on the remote systems that you wish to access.

PsExec

PsExec is a light-weight telnet-replacement that lets you execute processes on other systems, complete with full interactivity for console applications, without having to manually install client software. PsExec's most powerful uses include launching interactive command-prompts on remote systems and remote-enabling tools like IpConfig that otherwise do not have the ability to show information about remote systems. Note: some anti-virus scanners report that one or more of the tools are infected with a "remote admin" virus. None of the PsTools contain viruses, but they have been used by viruses, which is why they trigger virus notifications. NetworkMiner - The NSM and Network Forensics Analysis Tool. NetworkMiner is a Network Forensic Analysis Tool (NFAT) for Windows (but also works in Linux / Mac OS X / FreeBSD). NetworkMiner can be used as a passive network sniffer/packet capturing tool in order to detect operating systems, sessions, hostnames, open ports etc. without putting any traffic on the network.

NetworkMiner can also parse PCAP files for off-line analysis and to regenerate/reassemble transmitted files and certificates from PCAP files. NetworkMiner collects data (such as forensic evidence) about hosts on the network rather than to collect data regarding the traffic on the network. The main user interface view is host centric (information grouped per host) rather than packet centric (information showed as a list of packets/frames). NetworkMiner has, since the first release in 2007, become a popular tool among incident response teams as well as law enforcement.
