Does anyone have any knowledge of this site.

Is it safe to use to scan one's system, does it do a good job.

Any comments, please?

As far as I am concerned, it is an excellent site that I have used many times and it is, I believe, widely respected.

You need to be very careful interpreting the results given by the GRC port scanner.
Unless every port is in "Stealth" mode then GRC will report a failure, which is a little over cautious.
But it will show up any ports that are open that you did not expect.

As well as finding and reporting pen Ports, which you may wish to close, part of Steve Gibson's site produces random unique passwords too.

Well worth a vist!
