Port scanning is a technique which uses a port scanner software whose work is to check a server/computer for its open ports. People uses port scanner to see which services are running on which port on their computer. And Administrator of the server uses port scanner to keep a check on his network in respect of ports and to check the network policies of his network.

Attackers uses port scanner to check if they can break into the victim's system.
they check the vulnerability in the victim's system by checking the active and open ports and by knowing which services are running on which port in the victim's server.

Attacker may know the open ports in the server by using port scanner(port scanning) and then he can try to get the access of the server, he can also install a worm in victim's server to compromise some of his services.
