SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • On a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, you disable Windows Firewall for the Domain profile, the Private profile and the Public profile.
  • You enable the "Filtering Platform Connection" audit policy.
In this scenario, the following Event ID 5159 is logged many times in the Security event log:

Log Name:      Security 
Source:        Microsoft-Windows-Security-Auditing 
Event ID:      5159 
Task Category: Filtering Platform Connection 
Level:         Information 
Keywords:      Audit Failure 
User:          N/A 
Description: 
The Windows Filtering Platform has blocked a bind to a local port.
 
Application Information: 
        Process ID:             process ID 
        Application Name:       %path to some application%
Network Information: 
        Source Address:         IP address 
        Source Port:            port number
        Protocol:               17 
Filter Information: 
        Filter Run-Time ID:     0 
        Layer Name:             Resource Assignment 
        Layer Run-Time ID:      36

These events quickly fill the Security event log. Because of the large number of entries in the Security event log, it is difficult to monitor audit failures.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the Windows Filtering Platform (WFP) incorrectly logs an audit event for a blocked bind to a local port. However, this bind is permitted.
