Is there any software that is able to scan a black picture (a picture taken with the lens cap on) and find any bad pixels?

My co-worker has the Canon EOS 300D and can see several bad pixels after taking a picture with the lens cap on. The discussion came up that there might be more but we can't see as they are took dark. I know you can send you camera into Canon and they can map out the bad pixels but I wanted to know if there is software that will scan your own black image and report to you how many pixels might be bad.
