Port 5000 - 59999

Last Modified: 2015-04-20
For Video conferencing I have been requested to open the ports between 5000 - 5999 for both TCP & UDP.
Would like to know if these ports are opened in the firewall is there any security risks.
Does these ports have any security vulnerability.

We will be opening these from inside to outside which means from our IP to the external party IP Address.

Is there any vulnerability or security risk if we open these....
