    [threat] This port number is widely used on the net for MUDs (Multi-User-Dungeons), a type of chat system. It is also frequently used as an example port in code demonstrations or as an alternate HTTP port. The reason this is so popular is becuase it repeats the number 42, a popular number among computer geeks. In Douglas Adams classic book "Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy", the number "42" is the answer to life, the universe, and everything. o This port is used (TCP) for a remote admin Trojan called "Virtual Hacking Machine". o This port is used for configuration for the Payline e-commerce package. o Connectix VideoPhone uses this port for something. o IBM's version of UNIX, AIX, has a C++ source browser (part of IBM's CSet package) that listens at this port and is susceptable to a buffer overflow.

About TCP/UDP ports

TCP port 4242 uses the Transmission Control Protocol. TCP is one of the main protocols in TCP/IP networks. TCP is a connection-oriented protocol, it requires handshaking to set up end-to-end communications. Only when a connection is set up user's data can be sent bi-directionally over the connection.
Attention! TCP guarantees delivery of data packets on port 4242 in the same order in which they were sent. Guaranteed communication over TCP port 4242 is the main difference between TCP and UDP. UDP port 4242 would not have guaranteed communication as TCP.

UDP on port 4242 provides an unreliable service and datagrams may arrive duplicated, out of order, or missing without notice. UDP on port 4242 thinks that error checking and correction is not necessary or performed in the application, avoiding the overhead of such processing at the network interface level.
UDP (User Datagram Protocol) is a minimal message-oriented Transport Layer protocol (protocol is documented in IETF RFC 768).
Application examples that often use UDP: voice over IP (VoIP), streaming media and real-time multiplayer games. Many web applications use UDP, e.g. the Domain Name System (DNS), the Routing Information Protocol (RIP), the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
TCP vs UDP - TCP: reliable, ordered, heavyweight, streaming; UDP - unreliable, not ordered, lightweight, datagrams.
