Port(s) Protocol Service Details Source
5353 tcp,udp mdns Multicast DNS (MDNS) [IESG] (IANA official) [RFC 6762]
iChat, Mac OS X Bonjour/Zeroconf port
Plex Media Server uses port 5353 UDP locally for older Bonjour/Avahi network discovery.

Backdoor.Optix.04.E (2004.02.10) - a backdoor trojan horse that gives an attacker unauthorized access to an infected computer by opening TCP port 5353 and listening for incoming connections.

Remote attackers can perform a denial of service in WebRamp systems by sending a malicious UDP packet to port 5353, changing its IP address.
References: [CVE-1999-0438]

Avahi-core/socket.c in avahi-daemon in Avahi before 0.6.29 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via an empty mDNS IPv4 or IPv6 UDP packet to port 5353.
References: [CVE-2011-1002], [BID-46446]

The Multicast DNS (mDNS) responder in IBM Security Access Manager for Web 7.x before 7.0.0 FP12 and 8.x before 8.0.1 FP1 inadvertently responds to unicast queries with source addresses that are not link-local, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (traffic amplification) or obtain potentially sensitive information via port-5353 UDP packets.
References: [CVE-2015-1892]

The Multicast DNS (mDNS) responder in Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) before 3.1 inadvertently responds to unicast queries with source addresses that are not link-local, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (traffic amplification) or obtain potentially sensitive information via port-5353 UDP packets to the Avahi component.

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.
