    Hi Guys, I am securing my IIS server and when I scan it remotely I get the following ports opened : PORT STATE SERVICE 25/tcp open smtp 80/tcp open http 443/tcp open https 3306/tcp open mysql 49153/tcp open unknown 49154/tcp open unknown Is it safe to close ports 49153 and 49154 ? Both ports are being used by C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe. Thanks, Chris

     If you don't know what they are, close them.  See the well known port list for details on any port:  http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers.

    Ports 49153/49154 fall in the dynamic or private range, and might be used legitimately or not.  At least if you block them and something stops working you'll know what was using them.
