Yo, I'm a shitty, just-starting-out programmer.
People are always talking about securing their ports. I know nothing about networking, so I just don't get what's actually done to secure them.
Where do I get started with this / learning about this? I've done some googl'n, and it's not helping.
Most antivirus or antimalware software will detect botnets. The first step is prevention. You not only need the right software and tools but you also need to know how to prevent them.
When referring to securing ports, the first thing to do is acknowledge the services being used. Only open ports to services that are required or essential. When talking about open ports, we mean port forwarding through a router or firewall to allow external traffic to an internal system or device.
So then my question is are you referring to an operating system or software? This becomes more about trust than anything right here. Using a Linux operating system or open source software from a trusted source.
