Malicious services using this port:
Back Door setup trojan, Sockets des Troie trojan

Ipdsserver.exe in Intermate WinIPDS 3.3 G52-33-021 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via short packets on TCP port 5001 with the 3, 5, 7, 13, 14, or 15 packet types.
References: [CVE-2008-0791], [BID-27757]

Unspecified vulnerability in HP LoadRunner 9.52 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via network traffic to TCP port 5001 or 5002, related to the HttpTunnel feature.
References: [CVE-2011-0272] [BID-45792] [SECUNIA-42898] [OSVDB-70432]

Xen Mobile through 10.8.0 includes a service listening on port 5001 within its firewall that accepts unauthenticated input. If this service is supplied with raw serialised Java objects, it deserialises them back into Java objects in memory, giving rise to a remote code execution vulnerability. NOTE: the vendor disputes that this is a vulnerability, stating it is "already mitigated by the internal firewall that limits access to configuration services to localhost."
References: [CVE-2018-18013]

In the 3CX Phone System 15.5.3554.1, the Management Console typically listens to port 5001 and is prone to a directory traversal attack: "/api/RecordingList/DownloadRecord?file=" and "/api/SupportInfo?file=" are the vulnerable parameters. An attacker must be authenticated to exploit this issue to access sensitive information to aid in subsequent attacks.
References: [CVE-2017-15359], [EDB-42991]

Forcepoint User ID (FUID) server versions up to 1.2 have a remote arbitrary file upload vulnerability on TCP port 5001. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may lead to remote code execution. To fix this vulnerability, upgrade to FUID version 1.3 or higher. To prevent the vulnerability on FUID versions 1.2 and below, apply local firewall rules on the FUID server to disable all external access to port TCP/5001. FUID requires this port only for local connections through the loopback interface.
References: [CVE-2019-6139]

A conference management system of ZTE is impacted by a command execution vulnerability. Since the soapmonitor's java object service is enabled by default, the attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary commands by sending a deserialized payload to port 5001.

SANS Internet Storm Center: port 5001

Port numbers in computer networking represent communication endpoints. Ports are unsigned 16-bit integers (0-65535) that identify a specific process, or network service. IANA is responsible for internet protocol resources, including the registration of commonly used port numbers for well-known internet services.
Well Known Ports: 0 through 1023.
Registered Ports: 1024 through 49151.
Dynamic/Private : 49152 through 65535.

TCP ports use the Transmission Control Protocol, the most commonly used protocol on the Internet and any TCP/IP network. 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. Like TCP, UDP is used in combination with IP (the Internet Protocol) and facilitates 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 and realtime gaming, 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.
