Port(s) Protocol Service Details Source
8080 tcp http Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) - alternative ports used for web traffic. See also TCP ports 80, 81.

Some broadband routers run a web server on port 8080 for remote management. WAN Administration can (and should, in most cases) be disabled using the Web Admin interface.

If you're not running web services, keep in mind that some trojans also use these ports:
Reverse WWW Tunnel Backdoor - remote access/tunneling software coded in Perl, uses ports 80, 3128, 8080. Works on Unix, Linux, Solaris, AIX and OpenBSD.
RingZero (a.k.a. Ring0, Trojan.PSW.Ring, RingZero.gen, Ring) - uses ports 80, 3128, 8080. Affects Windows 9x.
Screen Cutter (a.k.a. Backdoor.Screencut) - uses ports 80, 8080.
Mydoom.B (2004.01.28) - mass-mailing worm that opens a backdoor into the system. The backdoor makes use of TCP ports 80, 1080, 3128, 8080, and 10080.

W32.Spybot.OFN (2005.04.29) - network-aware worm with DDoS and backdoor capabilities. Spreads through network shares and exploiting multiple vulnerabilities. It ay be downloaded by W32.Kelvir variants. Opens a backdoor on port 8080/tcp. Also exploits vulnerabilities on ports 445 and 1433.

W32.Zotob.C@mm (2005.08.16) - a mass-mailing worm that opens a backdoor and exploits the MS Plug and Play Buffer Overflow vulnerability (MS Security Bulletin [MS05-039]) on port 445/tcp. It connects to IRC servers and listens for remote commands on port 8080/tcp. It also opens an FTP server on port 33333/tcp.
Note: Same ports are used by the W32.Zotob.A and W32.Zotob.B variants of the worm as well.

W32.Zotob.E(2005.08.16) - a worm that opens a backdoor and exploits the MS Plug and Play Buffer Overflow vulnerability (MS Security Bulletin [MS05-039]) on port 445/tcp. It runs and spreads using all current Windows versions, but only infects Windows 2000.
The worm connects to IRC servers and listens for remote commands on port 8080/tcp. It opens port 69/udp to initiate TFTP transfers. It also opens a backdoor on remote compromised computers on port 8594/tcp.
Backdoor.Naninf.D (2006.02.01)
Backdoor.Naninf.C (2006.01.31)
W32.Rinbot.A (2007.03.02) - a worm that opens a back door, copies itself to IPC$ shares, connects to an IRC server, and awauts commands on port 8080/tcp.
Android.Acnetdoor (2012.05.16) - opens a backdoor on Android devices

8080 udp trojans Backdoor.Tjserv.D (2005.10.04) - a backdoor trojan that acts as a HTTP and SOCKS4/5 proxy. Opens a backdoor and listens for remote commands on port 8080/udp. Also opens a HTTP, SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 proxy on port 52179/tcp. SG

SANS Internet Storm Center: port 8080

Notes:
Well Known Ports: 0 through 1023.
Registered Ports: 1024 through 49151.
Dynamic/Private : 49152 through 65535.

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.
