Default Block All Inbound Windows Services
Hello I'm here with another "block" information. I had a few secs connection problem and when I checked my history I noticed "Default Block All Inbound Windows Services (Public Networks) rejected UDP(17) " And I'm pretty sure my my network is not public
Another thing is "Port bootps(67) and bootpc(68)"
Local IP 255...........
And process svchost.exe
I checked ports 67 and 68 on linklogger and I found:
"Typically this traffic is related to normal DHCP operation and is not an attack on your network. DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is how your computer gets its unique IP address. When a system starts up on a network it must first request an IP address (assume it is not using a static IP address), and it does this by broadcasting a request to the DHCP"...
UDP 0.0.0.0:68 -> 255.255.255.255:67
since the requesting system doesn't have an IP address (why it is asking) it uses 0.0.0.0 and since its new to the network it doesn't know where the DHCP server is, so it broadcasts the request to the entire network (255.255.255.255). On some networks you will see these requests bounce off of your firewall (depending on your provider's network configuration and if your router/firewall logs these requests), or your firewall/router might log this traffic between it and your providers DHCP server when it is getting or renewing its WAN IP address."
Am I still safe or I should do something?
Or maybe it's normal because I had a tiny connection problem?
