Use SuperScan the other day on my home network just to check things out. I extented the IP range (that is to say my DHCP provides 192.168.102 as NET ID)to include 192.168.1.0, what I got back surpized me. As the scan progressed I saw IP addresses in the range of 192.168.12.4 and so on up to 192.168.13.45. After short time the range I expect to see appeared. How is it that I am able to scan this other IP range and be able to also see what ports are open on these addresses? I guest the big question is have I been hacked?

Sounds like you were scanning back into the ISP's subnet.

DOesn't suprise me at all that you saw open ports.

The easiest way to check is to physically disconnect your internet and then run the scan.

You may have been scanning the 192.168.x.x subnet with a 255.255.0.0 mask. This would allow you to scan beyond your own private subnet. I would also disconnect as the previous poster mentioned and try again.
