HTTP / HTTPS ports open

I'm cross-posting this question from another customer here along with my reply, as this seems like a more likely forum for a solution:

HTTP / HTTPS ports open

Hi Everyone,

 

I have been using GRC ShieldsUP! to check to see if all is good with ports stealthed , open or closed etc.  I have BT hub 5, recently had OneDrive configured, I then removed this.  Installed is KIS 2019 19.0.0.1088 (b) on my Lenovo laptop.

 

All ports up until recently were stealthed, all good, however, recently I noticed port 80 and 443 are open.  Also All Service Ports scan does not complete, stops at port 415.

 

My question is:-   Is it OK to have port 80 and 443 open , when it was at a stealth status a few weeks ago and why is the All Service Ports scan stopping, has anyone else had this issue, if so please reply back.

 

Regards,  Paul.

Re: HTTP / HTTPS ports open

I'm afraid I don't have an answer, but have an identical result Paul;  for a couple of years of monthly checks I've had total 'stealth', but just tried in the last couple of days and have seen port 80 and 443 open.  Very confusingly I also discovered that ShieldsUp was identifying my IP address as a different ip to that given by virtually every other 'whats my current ip address' site on the internet - I'm wondering if a BT proxy could be to blame??

NB. I too have a HomeHub 5, and although I am using One Drive I have been hapilly using that for years even when these ports were not showing as open, so don't believe that OneDrive is to blame.

My GRC scan also halts at port 415
