Citrix NetScaler appliance Lights out Management uses ports 4001, 5900, 623 TCP to run a daemon that offers unified configuration management of routing protocols.
OptixPro (Backdoor.OptixPro.13.C) - trojan horse that opens a backdoor on TCP port 4001.
The Festo CECX-X-C1 Modular Master Controller with CoDeSys and CECX-X-M1 Modular Controller with CoDeSys and SoftMotion do not require authentication for connections to certain TCP ports, which allows remote attackers to (1) modify the configuration via a request to the debug service on port 4000 or (2) delete log entries via a request to the log service on port 4001.
A denial-of-service vulnerability exists in the Pixar Renderman IT Display Service 21.6 (0x67). The vulnerability is present in the parsing of a network packet without proper validation of the packet. The data read by the application is not validated, and its use can lead to a null pointer dereference. The IT application is opened by a user and then listens for a connection on port 4001. An attacker can deliver an attack once the application has been opened.

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.
