Because I programmed a custom cart solution for one of my customers,
their merchant account is doing a monthly server scan to check for
known vulnerabilities.


I've had to endure these scans, myself, and I must say that they helped a lot. The scans are pretty thorough and they made me re-think some things I was doing... particularly limiting access to ports that I thought 'needed' to be open, but actually just needed to be open to a small number of outside addresses. Thank goodness for PF... would hate to try to pass one of those scans without a flexible firewall.
