port 80 problems

  pembs 01:28 06 May 2003

Installed Norton Security 2003 today (used XP's built in firewall before) Went for a security scan at Sygate and got the following message

HTTP web services publish web pages. A misconfigured web server can not only offer an attacker needed information about his target, but it can allow for various security breaches

This result was for port 80. Can anybody tell where to find it and how to configure it.
Thanks in anticipation.

Hi pembs. I had a look via Google to see what I could find about port 80, and it appears that this is a web server problem where port 80 is the default port for monitoring the web. The references I found most useful were click here, click here and click here. If you have a good firewall and up to date antivirus you don't really anything to worry about.

port 80 is the default port for http traffic, so nothing untowards here methinks
