- For Windows: Nokia Monitor Test – old, and geared towards CRTs, but can still be used for TFTs
- From Extra Pepperoni: ScreenQuery for the Mac
- For Linux: lcdtest
A rant about penetration testing. I agree, testing should be done in cooperation with the security team (making it more a design review / validation session) and unless actions are taken, it is pointless.
