Not sure if this should go here, but I am getting many port scanning attacks (just started today) showing in my firewall log from IPs in the US, Canada and even Argentina, all looking at port 50259. What is that port used for?

 

Sincerely,

I am not sure but those scanning attacks most likely sourced within your installed programs, cracks or related use that you made yourself. My dad had scan intrusions when he had TDL4 rootkit in his PC. My suggestion is that you make a thread or request this to be moved into "Am i infected" 

Best regards

According to this http://www.adminsub.net/tcp-udp-port-finder/50259 , this port is used by Xsan, an Apple NAS protocol.

Didier Stevens and Pajajn thanks for the help, It is appreciated.  The scans were being blocked by ESET SS6. Cross checked with Hitman Pro, EEK and MBAM Pro looks like I am clean :bananas:

(I hope!). Might run TDSS killer just to be sure...to date, the scans have not re-occurred.
