unconvinced Posted July 17, 2009 Share Posted July 17, 2009 Hi all, I scanned a friend's i.p. with zenmap (gui version of nmap) and got the following result: Port State Service Reason Product Version Extra info 135 tcp open msrpc syn-ack Microsoft Windows RPC 1034 tcp closed zincite-a reset 1038 tcp closed unknown reset 1058 tcp closed nim reset 1071 tcp closed unknown reset 1072 tcp closed unknown reset 1073 tcp closed unknown reset 1074 tcp closed unknown reset 1141 tcp closed unknown reset 1147 tcp closed unknown reset 1900 tcp closed upnp reset Why did zenmap choose to tell me that those specific ports were closed on this pc, rather than just 'ignoring' closed ports as it does on most scans? Is it likely that these ports have services running on them on occasion but not during my scan, or have these ports been permanently closed? Obviously I was a bit concerned by the mention of 'zincite-a' in case my friend's pc was harboring a backdoor but as I'm very new to this I don't know if those ports are closed by xp's firewall or the AVG free my friend has installed. Any pointers would be appreciated. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
