Port 22253 Scans, Anyone?

Howdy folks,

All of a sudden tonight, I'm getting a bunch of Fin scans to port 22253 from a Comcast domain here in NJ. It's happened about a dozen times, always the same ports -- remote 57498, local 22253. My firewall is blocking them, but was just curious WTF it is.

I've been unable to find about anything about port 22253 online, so I was wondering if anyone out there in Live Journal land might know.

Thanks :)

There's nothing by default on that port. Either an evil robot overlord is contacting its robots and you're not infected, or someone's evil robot is just broken.

Thank you!

I was kind of thinking the same thing, but was hoping that someone might actually know :)

Funny thing is, you were the first person I thought of asking, but I didn't see you online, so I didn't ;)

Thanks again :D
