Port(s) Protocol Service Details Source
9090 tcp servers Linux Cockpit (Fedora 21, Arch Linux, CentOS, RHEL) - browser-based server administration platform, listens on port 9090 tcp by default (both HTTP and HTTPS connections).

Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) uses this port for initial HTTP communication between a remote management console and the SEPM to display the login screen.

Cherokee Web Server Admin Panel also uses this port

Aphex's Remote Packet Sniffer uses this port.

SqueezeCenter control (CLI) also uses this port

Prometheus (open-source system monitoring) uses these TCP ports:
9090 - Prometheus server
9091 - Pushgateway
9093 - Alertmanager
9094 - Alertmanager clustering
9100-9563 - Prometheus Exporters
See: Prometheus default port allocations on GitHub.

RTSP proxy for Novell BorderManager 3.6 SP 1a allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a GET request to port 9090 followed by a series of carriage returns, which causes proxy.nlm to ABEND.
References: [CVE-2002-0781]

Multiple HP Intelligent Management Center products could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by an error in the iNOdeMngChecker.exe component. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system with SYSTEM-level privileges.

9090 udp applications MPM SIP HP-180W Wireless IP Phone WE.00.17 allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information and possibly cause a denial of service via a direct connection to UDP port 9090, which is undocumented and does not require authentication.
References: [CVE-2006-0360], [BID-16285], [SECUNIA-18512]

ZyXel P2000W VoIP 802.11b Wireless Phone running firmware WV.00.02 allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information, such as MAC address and software version, by directly accessing UDP port 9090.

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.
