Just run Common Ports Probe from Gibson Research ( http://www.grc.com/ )and got
135 RPC OPEN! (Remote Procedure Call) "This impossible-to-close port appears in most Windows systems. Since many insecure Microsoft services use this port, it should never be left "open" to the outside world. This port has been exploited to send "Messenger Spam" pop-ups to Microsoft windows users. Since it is impossible to close, you will need a personal firewall or NAT router to block it from external access. Do it soon!"
Per a previous thread suggestion, went into ZA Security Suite and change the server rights for the Internet Zone. Change all of those with Allow to Ask except those that ZA Security Suite "strongly recommends that you do not change those settings", such as for Generic Host Process for Window Services | System, A popup with heading System Programs: Applying custom settings to System Programs could cause serious problems with your computer including crashes and Internet connectivity problems. ZA Security Suite strongly recommends that you do not change those settings.
Retest with the Common Ports Probe from Gibson Research, result still the same, Port 135 is still open.
Is this a common issue with ZA Security Suite?
(Common Ports Probe is at http://www.grc.com/)
Thks in advance.
