Open ports on laptop. Concerned about port '12345'. Is it a sign that my computers been compromised?
I'm abit worried about the results that I got from scanning the open ports on my laptop. Especially the port '12345' as I searched it up and came back with results on it being some sort of remote control software that's linked to it.
Plus the names for each port next to '139' and '12345' seem quite similar. So I'm wondering if theres connected in some way?
I'm not very tech savvy so I'm not sure on what it means. And if there would be anyway to close it?
Also how would these ports have opened?
Sorry, if that's a little vague I'm not too sure how to phrase the questions directly. As I dont really know much about ports.
