I've written a server. It's written in java and only sorts connections away if they've connected within the last second.
I'm concerned about exposing my IP and which port is open.
What are the dangers of exposing your IP and which ports are open? Does running my server software, which basically only executes readLine() and write() statements, in regard to the connected socket, pose any risk?
If so, are there any solutions I can use or preemptive steps I can take?
I'm a bit confused about this whole topic, reading and hearing so many different things.
Thank you, Mike.
