With this utility, users can also determine which process has binded on to
various ports on your PC and the remote network addresses suspicious
applications are accessing.

The same could also be used by spyware to steal information from the user's machine and sending it to remote users. As a response, ViewTCP shows all the processes running on a user's system and also the communications that these processes have with external entities.
The program details which processes are associated with which TCP/IP address and port. The
process name feature simplifies the task of determining what application is
responsible for specific connections and activity. Along with the process name,
the responsibility of the process and its developers are also
