Under the firewall settings "custom"... I have added ports 1900, 2869 because I have noted in my alerts that these ports are being attacked under the "UDP" and "TCP". I have also blocked port 5000 as well since it too could be vulnerable. Have blocked in both the "Internet" and "'Trusted" areas in the firewall menu. I am running Zone Alarm Pro, paid version.
Is this a good idea? I don't use the plug & play and understand that it is a vulnerability which can be utilized in an attack on my computer. If there is a problem with doing this, I can always change the settings.
Also is it advisable to block "outgoing" to these ports as well, or is this not necessary. Confused but trying to stop any attack on the computer as I have been had problems with crackers.
Thank you for any assistance you may be able to provide.
