You should look for Cybercop or Nessus Security scanning tool.
I use it to improve security of my net, it runs well. It also has a
"nmap plugin".

For an exemple :
Vulnerability found on port unknown (669/tcp)

The remote statd service could be brought down
with a format string attack - it now needs to
be restarted manually.

This means that an attacker may execute arbitrary
code thanks to a bug in this daemon.

Solution : upgrade to the latest version of rpc.statd
Risk factor : High
see CVE : CVE-2000-0666 (http://cgi.nessus.org/cve.php3?cve=CVE-2000-0666)

Best regards,
