    New port being scanned

    I have noticed an increase in the last month of scans on my port 34956. Port authority, here, and Symantec did not have any information on this specific port that I found. Does anyone know what is scanning 34956?

    I would guess that some new virus has started circulating on that port but since I did not find the information on Symantec I thought I should ask.

    On the plus side my firewall is blocking it so my machines are not infected.

    scanning???????on a perticular port????????????
    what is that????????????????????????????????


    anyways u should say attempt to connect.it may be a backdoor i don't think any known service or trojan uses it.must be a new one.try telnetting to 127.0.0.1 on port 34956 see if it is open on ur PC.if it is not may be u didn't allow that perticular aplication to access internet.if it is open find out what program is using that port.
    must be something new.

    Dshield.org is also reporting a rise in scans on that port. It's unclear however what should be listening on that port.
    Maybe someone modified an existing R.A.T. to listen on a different port?

    Is that the only port a perticular source IP is scanning?
    If not, what other ports are being scanned (from the same source ip)?

    AFAIK, port 34596 is unasigned.

    AFAIK IANA never assigned a port to a worm or RAT

    I meant it is not a known RAT port.

    What I have seen

    My firewall logs are showing multiple IPs from around the world attempting to scan this port. I am currently noticing about ten enteries a day with no obvious repeating of IPs. I am fairly sure that there have been repeat scans over this length of time but I don't know. I have not noticed one IP doing a range of scans on my system with this one included.
