Many different services and ports are enabled by default when installing a new operating system. Hackers can easily take advantage of these vulnerable ports and services without affecting you as the user. These malicious users can install programs and steal sensitive data without a trace.

It is important to monitor the enabled services and ports to ensure no outside parties have access to your systems. There are many different tools to monitor and alert on any changes to these possible vulnerabilities, but you have to take the initiative and see the necessity to become completely secure.
