What is Port Scan Attack?

Posted by:safaipao Posted on:Dec 9,2016

A port scan attack, therefore, occurs when an attacker sends packets to your machine, varying the destination port. The attacker can use this to find out what services you are running and to get a pretty good idea of the operating system you have.

Ports are like little doors on your system. Most packets leaving your machine come out of a certain door. They are destined for another door on another system.

There are two different protocols that use ports: TCP and UDP. Each of these two protocols has 65,536 different ports. Various Internet services listen on certain well-known doors. For example, Web servers usually listen on TCP port 80. Mail servers usually listen on TCP door port 25.

An attacker launches a port scan to see what ports are open, with a listening service, on your machine. A port scan attack, therefore, occurs when an attacker sends packets to your machine, varying the destination port.

Kudos to you! I find granite dates a place as well. Your sugtisgeons are right on the money! Take it from me {a buyer, slowly looking} I saw a house with the same thing, peach wood cabinets with granite. My first thought was I hate the granite but expensive to replace and then the whole kitchen was dated. The granite didn't fool me. Have a great weekend
