Port(s) Protocol Service Details Source
5000 tcp,udp UPnP Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) is a set of networking protocols that allows for networked and mobile devices to seamlessly discover each others' presence on the network and communicate.

UPnP discovery/SSDP, is a service that runs by default on Windows, and there are multiple security vulnerabilities associated with it, especially on older Windows versions. In 2001, Microsoft released 60 updates to Windows related to UPnP vulnerabilities.

Trojan Horses that use port 5000: Back Door Setup, Blazer5, Bubbel, ICKiller, Ra1d, Sockets des Troie
Trojan.Webus.B [Symantec-2004-100519-0947-99] - DDoS attack trojan, kills antivirus services, 10.05.2004. Uses port 5000/tcp for a DDoS attack.
W32.Mytob.HH@mm [Symantec-2005-071116-2302-99] - a mass-mailing worm with backdoor capabilities. Connects to an IRC server and listens for remote commands on port 26418/tcp. Also opens a backdoor on port 5000/tcp.

Stack-based buffer overflow in Hospira Communication Engine (CE) before 1.2 in LifeCare PCA Infusion System 5.07, Plum A+ Infusion System 13.40, and Plum A+3 Infusion System 13.40 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via traffic on TCP port 5000.
References: [CVE-2015-7909], [XFDB-110113]

A denial of service vulnerability has been identified in Go2Call. The problem is that Go2Call doesn't handle long bogus UDP packets. This allows malicious people to crash the application by sending a 1500 byte long packet to port 5000/udp.
References: [SECUNIA-9673]

SenNet Optimal DataLogger appliance, Solar DataLogger appliance and Multitask Meter could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by no authentication mechanism implemented for the Telnet service. By connecting to Telnet service using TCP port 5000, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to bypass access restrictions to connect to the shell and issue commands.

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.
