    How do I secure my HTTP.HTTP port is open how do I close it?

  • #2
    First of all...this should have been posted in Computer Security...it has been moved there. Second...What OS? What web server software? There are numerous ways to shut the http daemon down...it depends on your configuration. Give us more info and your chances of an appropriate answer greatly increase.

      internet security

      I have windows xp pro. I have a zone alarm firewall. All of my ports are in Stealth except the HTTP port and that transmits credit card info.

        First off, how did you come to believe that port 80 is open?

            Fuck grc.com
            do a netstat -a and look at your listenting ports. If http or 80 isn't listed then grc.com was wrong. If it is, it is because you installed MS personal web server or <shudder> IIS. You would then just need to disable one or the other of those.

            Side note....if you are running ZA how did grc.com find anything on your system?

              Just to be on the safe card, there's a wire that comes out of the back of the computer labeled "LAN" or "PHONE". If you unplug that then you can be 100% positive that noone will connect to port 80 anymore.

              Best of luck to ya,

                      Port 80 is probably open bc you are running Kazaa or a P2P program like that. If you go here, http://[insert your ip address here] ... you will probably see your files that you are sharing. If it's not that, I have no idea ;)

                        Actually, if I'm not mistaken Kazaa opens higher ports, not port 80.

                          kazaa is using ports 3162 and 1214 on my machine. port 80 is http, so i am guessing you got the internet explorer open. So just go on your firewall if ya got one, and block port 80 and all problems are solved :D

                          If you still think you got some port questions refer to the port list http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers

                            Kazaa is chocked full of spyware. Use Kazaa Lite.

                              My recommendation to anyone thinking of running p2p apps... make a skim vmware box out of 98/2000 and install/run the in that. This can also work well for testing some low-risk junk apps off the net
                              if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.
