Internet Port 135 Vunerability

Went to GRC.com last night and ran the Shields Up test. All the ports except port 135 where in stealth. This is good but is there anyway of manually closing ports.

Steve Gibson reckons that this is a known vunerability issue relating to DCOM whatever that is and microsoft have a patch which I will download later (if I can find it).

It would be handy to know where all port addresses can be accessed.

Cheers in advance.

Steve Gibson has 3 small programmes to download, one of which will close that port after which that should be shown as stealth
