Threat of the Month: Malicious Port Scanning
Port scanning is a method attackers use to scope out their target environment by sending packets to specific ports on a host and using the responses to find vulnerabilities and understand which services, and service versions, are running on a host. The attacker is looking to ID specific services such as Active Directory, MSSQL, SMB/CIFS, SSH, etc. as well as what version of the software those hosts are running.
