Port 111 and the MS ports are a no brainer.  We also currently block 1433 
because of the sqlsnake and its variants.  Port 27374 seems to still be a 
popular MS Trojan port for scans so there must be some level of infection 
out there.  P2P ports such as 1214 is a judgement call.  We basically block 
and unblock ports depending on the risks we see out there.
