hi Dave,

NtWaK0 released an advisory to bugtraq on 15/02/2002 dealing with port 445, 
here's a quick extract:

        TCP/UPD port 445 is open by default on a Fresh installed XP box.        :
        The attack is seriouse since it work remotly and can make the CPU 100 % :
        in less then 20 Second.

you can find the full text at:

it might not help with port enumeration but it could shed some light on the 
machine's os..

good luck,

Hello All

I'm currently pentesting a client and nmap reports that a particular host
has the following ports open: 82/tcp


Does anyone have any further information on these ports and what sort of
application might be running using these open ports (assuming they are what
they say they are!)

Also assuming it's Win2K are there any tools for enumeration on port 445?

All help appreciated
