Welcome to Norton Community!
You may need to check the Security logs/History when you have some problem with security or using Internet. The files which you have mentioned like ccSvcHSt.exe, svchost.exe, lsass.exe, CLTLMH.exe,etc are all either Norton files or Windows system files which try to communicate through Internet while you use different applications. Most of these files can be trusted. The "Unused port blocking" is the security log information for the Intrusion Prevenstion/Firewall feature. This indicates that when a port was unused, some Inbound(incoming) intrusion has happened and so the Norton program blocked that communication to protect your computer. Similar intrusions are always blocked by Norton program and you are safe to go. This was discussed in various other threads like the following one:

The so called "Smart Firewall" used in N360 today has everything, that happens on in- or
outgoing traffic through it under complete control.
I´ve seen this for a long time, without having any malwares or other
threats on my systems.
Do follow the advise of "Turbo", to run a full malware scan.
Please, don´t worrie, everything is ok !!
Take care and good luck !!

Thanks Kurt & Turbo
I downloaded Malwarebytes and ran a quick scan (I have not had time to do a full scan yet) - it found nothing.
However, just running the scan threw up some worrying things in the Norton Security History log (entries such as <Unauthorised Access logged> - or words to that effect). But perhaps that is normal because Malwarebytes has necessarily scanned some Norton 360 files?
I'm still worried about the number of connection attempts, even though they are blocked by Norton 360. Do I understand what you say, Kurt, to mean that that the average of 6 attempted connections per minute that I see is quite normal?
