I had the above test and was told by Symantec that I have the following security risks: ICMP Ping ; Telnet; and HTTP. I have Zone Alarm on'high' plus the Win XP pro SP2 firewall on.Isnt that enough? I have Norton's Internet Security but the firewall is turned off.Any ideas please?
First i would turn off the windows firewall if you have ZA on,they may conflict with each other,you say you have NIS but the firewall is turned off,but the firewall software may still interfere with ZA,you could go the whole hog and uninstall NIS and download another AV scanner AVG has a lot of followers,as for the ports HTTP 80 needs to be open for the web browser to work,but idealy should be stealthed,the ICMP ping and Telnet im not sure about but would think they need to be stealthed,if not closed.Try this test click here
I had another check on click here as suggested by Zaphod Beeblebrox, and TRUSTEALTH sated that 'All tested parts were stealth. No unsolited packets were received, no ping reply ICMP received'. I suspect that Symantec wanted me to use their firewall, so gave me the vulnerability report. Thanks.
