8001 tcp trojan squid HTTP Proxy server scan

Backdoor.Graybird.D is a variant of Backdoor.Graybird. This Trojan Horse gives its creator unauthorized access to your computer. The existence of the file, Svch0st.exe, is an indication of a possible infection.

Directory traversal vulnerability in WellinTech KingView 6.53 allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files via a crafted HTTP request to port 8001.
References: [CVE-2012-2560]

Stack-based buffer overflow in db_netserver in Lianja SQL Server before 1.0.0RC5.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted string to TCP port 8001.
References: [CVE-2013-3563]

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.
