That looks helpful, unless it is a social engineering ploy to build a list of compromised networks to sell to the criminals it claims to protect us from.

Hmm, I don't know what it did, but it was rather quick and gave me the result that "No issues were found on your router."

I'm guessing it's just probing some common ports to see if they're open. For home routers, ports for a web server, ftp, telnet, common irc ports, smtp, pop3, etc. should all be closed.
