Port(s) Protocol Service Details Source
5002 tcp trojans W32.Spybot.IVQ (01.26.2005) - Worm with distributed denial of service and backdoor capabilities. Spreads through network shares, MySQL (port 3306)/MS SQL (port 1433) servers with weak passwords, and by exploiting system vulnerabilities (ports 135, 445).

SouthWest is vulnerable to a denial of service attack. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted HTTP request to the HTTP server listening on port 5002 to cause the service to crash. The service must be restarted to regain normal functionality.
References: [BID-4362], [CVE-2002-0496]

Unspecified vulnerability in HP LoadRunner 9.52 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via network traffic to TCP port 5001 or 5002, related to the HttpTunnel feature.
References: [CVE-2011-0272] [BID-45792] [SECUNIA-42898] [OSVDB-70432]

Opens a backdoor on one or more of these ports: 5002, 5003, 1927, 1930.

Some other trojans also use this port: cd00r, Shaft, Linux Rootkit IV (4)
5002 udp hdhomerun HDHomeRun DVR from SiliconDust uses this port. HDHomeRun can be administered over the Ethernet link to tune channels, broadcast an MPEG stream, etc. The device can be viewed/controlled through a range of Linux/Windows DVR/PVR programs.

List of all used ports:
Discovery Protocol - UDP 65001
Control Protocol - TCP 65001
Video stream - UDP 5002 and UDP 5004
LIRC for IR on HD Homerun - UDP 5000

Cisco 11000 Series Content Services Switches (CSS) running WebNS 5.0(x) before 05.0(04.07)S, and 6.10(x) before 06.10(02.05)S allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (device reset) via a malformed packet to UDP port 5002.

TCP ports use the Transmission Control Protocol. TCP is the most commonly used protocol on the Internet and any TCP/IP network. Whereas the IP protocol deals only with packets, TCP enables two hosts to establish a connection and exchange streams of data. TCP guarantees delivery of data and that packets will be delivered in the same order in which they were sent. Guaranteed communication/delivery is the key difference between TCP and UDP.

UDP ports use the Datagram Protocol, a communications protocol for the Internet network, transport, and session layers. Like TCP (Transmission Control Protocol), UDP is used with IP (the Internet Protocol) and makes possible the transmission of datagrams from one computer to applications on another computer, but unlike TCP, UDP is connectionless and does not guarantee reliable communication; it's up to the application that received the message to process any errors and verify correct delivery. UDP is often used with time-sensitive applications, such as audio/video streaming, where dropping some packets is preferable to waiting for delayed data.

When troubleshooting unknown open ports, it is useful to find exactly what services/processes are listening to them. This can be accomplished in both Windows command prompt and Linux variants using the "netstat -aon" command. We also recommend runnig multiple anti-virus/anti-malware scans to rule out the possibility of active malicious software. For more detailed and personalized help please use our forums.
