Nothing seems blocked-using nmap to verify
Been scanning my localhost with nmapp to check for vulnerabilities.
I have apache and mysql and openSSH running on my system for testing, but I don't want
any outside connections, so I have the ports blocked, (Deny) for incoming connections.
But when I re-run nmap it still says the ports are open( 80, 22, 3306).
Shouldn't they al leats say 'filtered'??
Does scanning from within the localhost not considered an outside connection??
I have also tried blocking outside connections as well but nmap still says they are open.
BTW shouldn't blocking port 80 prevent me from web browsing?? Cause it isn't.
I can web browse when port 80 is supposed to be blocked.
