I just performed a port scan using a Broadband Reports service.  I got the following report:  Conclusion: Possible Problem! We did get information from scanning your ports, this information could encourage attackers to probe further. Do you know why you are advertising these services to the net? perhaps installation of a firewall, or reconfiguration of your firewall to be more secure, would provide peace of mind.

I am using Norton Personal Firewall 2003.  I have no idea how to address this issue.  Can someone help me?
