Re: YIKES - OPEN PORT 80 probed in Yahoo chat!!

Port 80 Information

World Wide Web HTTP

HTTP is used to serve and request WWW pages. The Source computer has scanned your computer for a Web Server. Personal Web Servers, while common, are not always secure. Some Personal Web Servers can be used to gain access to files on your computer. Many Trojan/Worm attacks spread via this port (such as the infamous Code Red). The firewall is protecting you from this threat. However, if you are running a web server or are publishing web camera photos to the web and that application is not working you will need to open this port.
