"Why is This Website Port Scanning me?"
@halcy No, seriously, a random web page being able to fingerprint me based on which programs I'm running is not cool
@Gargron it's literally just connecting to every port that you are about and seeing if the computer on the other side replies back
the real issue here is why is a random ass website allowed to open websockets to localhost
I don't think the author necessarily meant server port scanning was malicious
Although it is often used to find vulnerabilities so it kind of is
@Gargron ideally I don't ever slip up like this, but if I leave my bank website open when I start screensharing I definately want it to log me out.
