Indian security firm MicroWorld has released a Vista-compatible version of its network monitoring tool.

The ViewTCP tool examines TCP/IP activity on Windows-based systems and lists all transmission control protocol (TCP) and user datagram protocol (UDP) endpoints on a PC and the remote addresses that they connect to.

"With this user friendly application, you can determine the processes that are bound on various ports on your PC and the remote network addresses accessed by suspicious applications," said Manoj Mansukhani, head of MicroWorld's technology division.

According to MicroWorld, network monitoring is critical for computers connected to the internet, as most worms, bots, trojans and backdoors are controlled remotely by attackers.

The firm cited the Sobig worm, which spread a proxy server trojan across thousands of PCs worldwide in 2003, as an example of such dangers.
