weird port no's open
hi peoples, just did a netstat on my win '95 box and was surprised to see the amount of ports open, there were some really weird ones too.
there were 4 to this address 188.8.131.52:80, listening on local ports :4033, 4260, 4616, 4901
(all tcp), im not sure if this is something to do with using the opera browser (adware)
also there are 3 udp ports open as well, 3147, 12527 (also on tcp) and 44334
does anyone know is any of these ports may point to a trojan virus or could they just be something to do with my browser? im also using avs virus scan ver6 (the free one)
can these ports be safely left open or should i tighten up my firewall (tiny personal) so they are not open?? :S
