||W32.Reatle.mm@mm (07.15.2005) - mass-mailing worm that exploits the MS Windows LSASS Buffer Overrun Vulnerability ([MS04-011]) on TCP port 445. Opens a backdoor by running an FTP server on port 8885/tcp. Also attempts to perform a denial of service attack against www.symantec.com by targeting port 1052/tcp with randomly generated packets.
W32.Reatle.C@mm (07.19.2005) - another variant of the above mass-mailing worm. Opens a backdoor on port 8885/tcp and attempts to perform a denial of service attack against www.symantec.com on port 1052/tcp.
W32.Reatle.E@mm (08.02.2005) - a mass-mailing worm that opens a backdoor and also spreads by exploiting the MS DCOM RPC Vulnerability ([MS03-026]) on port 135/tcp. It uses its own SMTP engine to email itself to gathered email addresses. Opens an FTP server on port 1155/tcp. Opens a proxy server on port 2005/tcp. It also attempts to perform denial of service (DDoS) attack agains known security websites on port 1052/tcp. Note: port 1052 corresponds to the dynamic DNS service.
Fire HacKer, Slapper, The Hobbit Daemon trojans also use this port.

SANS Internet Storm Center: port 1052
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.
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.
