Running a port scan via Network Utility on OS X 10.14.5, turns up two different outcomes, depending on whether or not I have Visual Studio Code (1.35.1) open.
If the application is open, I'll get random ports around 64500 open as well, if not, these open ports disappear.
I've set up Little Snitch to prevent connections in/out from VSC (which may be overkill), but:
- How much of a risk is it to have these random ports open on my machine while I'm using Code?
- What other steps can I take to prevent any malicious behavior through these ports?
