I've used this site occassionally for over 20 yrs now , and started when at uni'.

Shields Up

It probes your machines ports and gives you a breakdown of potential vulnerable ports, and advises any action.

The main option buttons I use (once you get past the first page) for quickness are 'File Sharing', 'Common Ports', & 'All Service Ports'.

I'm not saying it's the be all & end all, of internet security, but it is interesting, and a could potentially alert you to a major issue.

Full stealth across the board. Which is what I expected from debian behind a hardware firewall.

Full stealth mode here,
Apart from an IP address up that London way it got nowt.

Dunno why, it's nothing I did
Could it be cos I use a 4G router instead if a normal broadband
(ie phone or fibre) one?

Unless your machine is directly connected to the internet (bad idea), it's just probing your router. Most these days will have explict deny on any incoming traffic (that wasn't initiated from inside the network), unless you've got port forwarding etc set up.

Mine is completely clean, surprisingly. I'm happy with that.

Pretty much that. Mine clearly shows up 80/443 as they are exposed to a single device which is intentional. Doesn't bother checking higher, but 8080 is open too Laughing

If you have anything open and don't know why... you would be silly.

Your Internet port 139 does not appear to exist!
Unable to connect with NetBIOS to your computer.
There is NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER that a port (or even any computer) exists at this IP address!

guess im covered Laughing

Well considering my internal network is behind 2 firewall routers with a walled garden for my VoIP ATA and another piece of equipment, and considering that I'm also behind CGNAT at the ISP end...

Oh and I often use a VPN Laughing

It's a good site though - I've used it many times in the past and Steve Gibson is one of the good guys. Thumbs Up

I aren't doing anything special but all was good except port 80 open that might be for security camera though.
Not bothered about that anyway.

I got these results, when I did the all ports tests every post was stealth:

FILE SHARING TEST

Shields UP! is now attempting to contact the Hidden Internet Server within your PC. It is likely that no one has told you that your own personal computer may now be functioning as an Internet Server with neither your knowledge nor your permission. And that it may be serving up all or many of your personal files for reading, writing, modification and even deletion by anyone, anywhere, on the Internet!

Your Internet port 139 does not appear to exist!

One or more ports on this system are operating in FULL STEALTH MODE! Standard Internet behavior requires port connection attempts to be answered with a success or refusal response. Therefore, only an attempt to connect to a nonexistent computer results in no response of either kind. But YOUR computer has DELIBERATELY CHOSEN NOT TO RESPOND (that's very cool!) which represents advanced computer and port stealthing capabilities. A machine configured in this fashion is well hardened to Internet NetBIOS attack and intrusion.

Unable to connect with NetBIOS to your computer.

All attempts to get any information from your computer have FAILED. (This is very uncommon for a Windows networking-based PC.) Relative to vulnerabilities from Windows networking, this computer appears to be VERY SECURE since it is NOT exposing ANY of its internal NetBIOS networking protocol over the Internet.

TRUESTEALTH TEST

Your system has achieved a perfect "TruStealth" rating. Not a single packet — solicited or otherwise — was received from your system as a result of our security probing tests. Your system ignored and refused to reply to repeated Pings (ICMP Echo Requests). From the standpoint of the passing probes of any hacker, this machine does not exist on the Internet. Some questionable personal security systems expose their users by attempting to "counter-probe the prober", thus revealing themselves. But your system wisely remained silent in every way. Very nice.
