If you are not adept at programming and/or using a Windows system, there is software available that will do the port scans. aspx You start by typing in the IP address, then click Port Scan. Here is a sample of the results: You will notice that ports 21 and 80 are open. These are the SSH and HTTP ports. The next job is to access the open ports. In a Windows environment, you will need to use the command telnet. You may have to install it as a Windows component from the Control Panel. In newer versions of Windows you will need to go to Programs and Features…Turn Windows Features On or Off and then check the boxes next to Telnet Server and Telnet Client.

You can think of it as a piping system, where the port acts as a valve. If the port is not being used, it is closed and nothing can get through; if the port is open, then it may be vulnerable to attack. If you aren’t using a port, it should be closed. We are going to talk about how hackers use ports to gain access to your system, but first let’s go over some acronyms and definitions. DNS: Domain Name Server, translates names into IP addresses FTP: File Transfer Protocol, used to transfer files from one host to another HTTP: HyperText Transfer Protocol HTTPS: HTTP over SSL (see definition below) POP3: Post Office Protocol version 3, used to retrieve email from a mail server RPC: Remote Procedure Call, allows a program on one computer to run a program on the server SSH: Secure Shell, used to login to another computer over the network, move files between computers, and execute commands remotely SSL: Secure Sockets Layer, uses two keys to encrypt data shared via the internet SMTP: Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, used to send email messages from one server to another, or from a mail client to a mail server TCP: Transmission Control Protocol, allows two hosts to make a connection and exchange data UDP: User Datagram Protocol, primarily used for broadcasting messages over a network Ports that are commonly hacked include… TCP port 21 - FTP TCP port 22–SSH TCP port 23 - telnet TCP port 25 - SMTP TCP and UDP port 53 - DNS TCP port 443 - HTTP and HTTPS TCP port 110 - POP3 TCP and UDP port 135 - Windows RPC TCP and UDP ports 137–139 - Windows NetBIOS over TCP/IP TCP port 1433 and UDP port 1434–Microsoft SQL Server Now, how do hackers know if a port is open?

You start hearing some strange noises from the engine, so you decide to pop the hood to take a look. However, when you try to pop the hood you find it welded shut! You can’t even change the oil without going through the car manufacturer to have it done. Fortunately, cars aren’t like that–but some operating systems are! Unix is more like a car: you can pop the hood, look around at the source code, find out how it works, make changes to see what happens, and more. Unix comes in so many different flavors: Unix, Linux, Kali, Fedora, FreeBSD, Ubuntu…the list keeps growing.
