closing ports 135 (msrpc) & 139 (netbios-ssn)
Posted on 2004-10-02
According to nmap, the following ports are open on my computer:
135/tcp open msrpc
139/tcp open netbios-ssn
My understanding is the msrpc is the server that formerly was vulnerable to the msblast worm, so I'd like to disable it. I probalby don't need it open, right? How can this be done?
Also, is there a reason not to disable the netbios-ssn process? If so, how can I stop the process from running?
