I have a linksys wireless router - BEFW11S4 and I have a desktop and
laptop using wireless connections to the router. Everything works
I wanted to FTP to the desktop from outside my house so I loaded a FTP
server and because I was told it would be safer - I mapped a random
high port number ot port 21 . All this worked fine.
Recently I went back into the router and noticed that there were 2 new
apps in th port forwarding which I did not add! I can't find anything
about them. Or - I can't understand how they got there. I couldn't
find anything about potential security problems with the router except
vague references .
I disabled all of it
How can apps get added to port forwarding in the router? Is this a
hack or security thing? or is there a way for apps to update the
router. (I changed the admin password from the default) .
As far as the apps added - they are:
ELFP?Ð from Ext port - 1334 to Int. port 5292 using UDP
ELF??Ð from Ext port 2837 to Int port 5276 using UDP
I don't see any of the ports using netstat -a
Any ideas on how this happend or what these are?
