Forum Thread: How To Know If an Open Ports is Vulnerable

Hey, I am a newbie hacker and I just wanted to grasp as much information as possible. I have searched extensively on the term open port,but I am still confused. How do I know if an open port is vulnerable or not and if it is what tools can I use to exploit the vulnerability?

An open port is a port on which is connected a software in order to send and/or receive message, in your case you're probably refering to TCP/UDP virtual port, but there are also other type of port like Serial ports.

In fact it's not the port itself that is vulnerable it's the software behind that is.

So in short depends on the software. If you're lucky you may find a port used by a known vulnerable service and then you can try to exploit it.

you have many database on internet that record well known vulnerable softwares like exploit-db.
