something on port 98?
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hey all. I'm seeing odd results when I portscan my server from a remote
host. nmap is indicating that port 98 (the dreaded linuxconf port) is
in a filtered state. I have never ever ever installed linuxconf. I
know my ipchains rules have nothing to do with this, as I just flushed
all the rules, tried the portscan again, and saw the same results.
fuser does not show any process listening on port 98. I built a new
fuser executable from trusted source (the Debian potato sources, freshly
downloaded) and still saw nothing on that port.
telnetting to that port from a remote host hangs while trying to
establish the connection. telnetting from the localhost gives a
connection refused message.
I doubt it's a sign that the box has been cracked, but I suppose it's
conceivable. I'm stumped. Can anybody offer an explanation?
