Check If My Ports 139, 445 Are Open To The Internet


Check if my ports 139, 445 are open to the Internet.

A mass Router hack exposes millions of devices to an NSA Exploit, so far 45,000 Internet routers have been compromised by this newly discovered campaign designed to open networks to attacks by EternalBlue.

This new attack exploits routers with vulnerable implementations of Universal Plug and Play, to force connected devices to open ports 139 and 445.

Check if my ports 139, 445 are open to the Internet.

This is how you check what ports are open and what is listening on them:

netstat -natp

Press Enter,

You'll see both local addresses like localhost, routers IP and foreign IP, including ports.

If neither 139 or 445 appears, they are closed.

However if open , you can simply run this command to shut them down:

sudo service smbd stop

Next step:

I do recommend you do an external scan of your systems ports using GRC's free services. They have had over 54,000+ positive results, which is bad news for many people.

Now go there and test your routers/ computers ports!
