Port 1984 Details
known port assignments and vulnerabilities
5 records found
The config method in Henrik Storner Hobbit monitor before 4.1.2p2 permits access to files outside of the intended configuration directory, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via requests to the hobbit daemon on port 1984/tcp.
References: [CVE-2006-4003], [BID-19317]
The Updater in Rackspace Openstack Windows Guest Agent for XenServer before 126.96.36.199 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted serialized .NET object to TCP port 1984, which triggers the download and extraction of a ZIP file that overwrites the Agent service binary.
References: [CVE-2013-6795], [OSVDB-100191], [SECUNIA-55775]
Rackspace Windows Agent and Updater could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitary code on the system, caused by an error in the Agent and Updater services when handling Agent binaries updates for the Cloud Server guest instances. By sending a specially-crafted request using .NET serializable object to TCP port 1984 , a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable system.
Port is also IANA registered for BB.

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.
