hi....

    by default the icq instant messenger uses port 1027 for establishing
connections. also 1027 tends to be pretty often selected by outbound clients
as a random source port.

Subject: Remote Connection questions




Hi,

I ran PortExplorer this afternoon, while I had no apps running, and I
noticed a Remote connection. The details are listed below. Since the ip
address is owned by the DOD, I was a little alarmed. Being very ignorant
on security and remote connections, I was wondering what I should do now,
if anything, and if I should be concerned.

I rebooted and have been checking PortExplorer, but the connection has not
been re-established. The time the connection was created was about the
time I booted up this morning.

Thanks

Jay
