Security....



Everyone,

I've actually had to lock down most ports on my server; because, I got tired of all the attempts at attacks.
Everyone, please use a firewall. I've noticed many attacks to the following ports:
111 -- sunrpc ** this effects Linux machines
135 -- DCE Endpoint Resolution
137 -- netbios-ns
139 -- netbios-ssn
445 -- microsoft-ds ** these affects samba services as well.
1433 -- ms-sql-s
1434 -- ms-sql-m ** I don't know why SQL ports are being attacked.


  1023 -- ???
  5554 -- ???
  9898 -- ???  ** this group may be related to PCAnywhere, or Worm, etc.

The most active: port 445 by far!

Just giving everyone a heads-up on the security issues.
James Kosin
