Port 17300 is apparently the backdoor of Kuang2. I've gotten a few hits of
it myself on a little ol' dialup line.

Yeah.  We've seen these as well.  Ours came packed with a portscan for port
23, 67 (TCP) 1756, tcp 6112, and tcp 9001.  We've also seen a marked
increase in scans for tcp port 3389 (ms terminal services).  Additionally,
we've seen some odd scans for tcp 17300.

I haven't taken the time yet to see what runs on 17300 tcp.

As of about 2:00 am cst 2/14/03 I have been receiving connection
attempts on my router to port 1756(caplast-lmd). Has any one seen this
too? Are there any know vulnerabilities on that port? I have been
getting a connection attempt about every 10-15 seconds. It's
almost like
a DoS attack. Anyone have any thoughts.=20
