bittorent Azureus port opening vulnerability?
Posted 06 March 2005 - 03:46 AM
While this seems like it might be a security hole, I am not sure if it is, or just how concerned I should be.
First, I have no intention of not using Azureus to grab something.
I use Firestarter. I run no servers from this system - it is simply a home desktop computer connected by Comcast cable to the internet. If i check ICMP and pong, then GRC gives me a stealth/passed.
If I open 6881-6889 to "anyone", GRC [scan 6880-6899] shows 6881 as open and 6882-6889 as closed. - Not sure why.
I suppose the logical question is how can I open 6881-6889 ONLY to bittorrent.
Is there a way I could keep Azureus running and not be vulnerable.
