Clarify Ports to Block for Black Ice Firewall Program


B

Blaster

Hello, I use a 3rd party Firewall Program, Black Ice,
which is THE ONLY Firewall that scans incoming AND
outgoing packets.

One of your support professionals told me to ALSO block
the following ports, as a FURTHER preventative
measure against the Blaster Worm Virus.

PROBLEM: One of the Port Types I wrote down incorrectly,
Please clarify.

135 Type TCP & 135 Type UDP
139 Type TCP & 139Type UDP
445 Type TCP & 445 Type UDP
and also block: TFTP69 & TCP4444

THERE IS NO PORT TYPE OF TFTP, what Port type is 69 that
is to be blocked?

ARE THERE ANY OTHER PORTS I SHOULD BLOCK?

Thanks!

Wrong! A number of firewalls scan both incoming and outgoing packets.
