Apparently, port numbers for connections are hashed from the IP address of each peer (See: http://mtc.sri.com/Conficker/)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conficker

See https://wikis.uit.tufts.edu/confluence/display/Conficker/Conficker+Resource+Page for some tools.

The port used is generally between 1024 and 10000.

Hello,

I am interested in finding out if you only need the port number for Conficker propogation or you want to remove it from your machine?? If you want to remove it, then you can use the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool based at:

Hope it helps.

I don't know if the asker got the correct answer or if the question was more than what had been asked. Hard to tell because we never heard back from the asker. Its upto other experts to decide if they want to split points for time spent or refund points to asker.

The links and advice provided by the experts could be useful for other people.
As the asker hasn't responded there is no knowing what comment provided his solution.

If giving points, the only fair way in this case would be to split between all contributing experts.
