so many ports open by default

Hello all,

I am bit startled by the number of open ports / connections allowed in McAfee by default. Is that for everybody or is it just in my McAfee installation for Asus?

For instance, Windows SMB ports are open or 1771 TCP/UDP ports for an unknown software named HCK Suite.

Thank you
