Chapter Summary

There are many issues related to TCP/IP security—among the most prominent is that any system with TCP/IP installed and configured and attached to the Internet becomes a target very quickly. If this system is not secured properly, it has a high risk of being found and compromised by a hacker performing scans of IP addresses for vulnerabilities. It is usually recommended to apply the latest patches and service packs and take any vendor-recommended steps to secure the product in question. Also, disabling any unused services, ports, and software can be a good way to augment a system's security.
