I was told for my Linksys Network IP camera to open a port anywhere from 1054 to 65,534. I chose 1054 and now when I scan with Gibsons "Shields Up" See https://www.grc.com
I am being told I have a vulnerability at 1054.
Specifically "One or more unspecified Distributed COM (DCOM) services are opened by Windows. The exact port(s) opened can change, since queries to port 135 are used to determine which services are operating where. As is the rule for all exposed Internet services, you should arrange to close this port to external access so that potential current and future security or privacy exploits can not succeed against your system."
Am I at risk.
Also it tells me Port 80 is open and "The web is so insecure these days that new security "exploits" are being discovered almost daily. There are many known problems with Microsoft's Personal Web Server (PWS) and its Frontpage Extensions that many people run on their personal machines. So having port 80 "open" as it is here causes intruders to wonder how much information you might be willing to give away."
If I dont have port 80 open then how would I be able to surf the web ?
