RE: scanning

Depends on the Jurisdiction... However If I found out that it was my
site, I'd have to debate on whether or not to sue your ass... But that's
just me... 

You would not sue anyone. Thats just saying that you would sue anyone under the sun trying to ping or go after some bot 
trying to scan your Apache box for IIS 5 vulnerabilities. My point is, even if you did realize someone was actively 
scanning your host, there would be nothing you could do, I think it would be too time consuming. Yet your question 
still stands. Is it legal or illegal?

Is it illegal if I perform a vulnerability scan on a site without
permission from the owner? How about a simple port scan? thanks..
