The machine is in Tai-wan or at least shows a TW IP.

You are in truly dangerous territory here (on to
be even acknowledging that you might have done an nmap scan (thousands
do). Those who oppose will not stop without threats or more. Those who
might agree may be intimidated from posting by previous experiences here.
Some of the people who post here think that they "own" the internet.

There is no law (I am no lawyer, as far as I know or can determine)
against scanning, yours or others'. See Tom Liston's post here. If you
read later, the page may be archived in the "previous" link. Not all
posts, it seems to me, are actually archived in their original form.
Here, he mentions tee shirts with "I tipped a computer with nmap", or some
such. Read it anyway every day. It is worth the time.

It is titled: A Bunch Of Bull in a China Shop

I am really not any kind of expert, but the results you posted suggest
some things. All of those lower ports being open suggests a machine
without a firewall, which is probably compromised (0wn3d). The real
offender is somewhere else, and untraceable. Whoever owns (not 0wns) this
machine is clueless and/or careless, and will not change it even if
notified. Note that the 445/tcp filtered microsoft-ds and 135/tcp
filtered msrpc ports are filtered. Unfortunately, unless you can knock
her down clean on her ass, there isn't much you can do about it. I, for
myself, would really like to know that you did knock her down clean on her
ass. And note for legal purposes that I am not advocating any illegal or
antisocial actions.

I'll talk about the threats and other crap you hear from supposedly
"ethical" people here privately, or in some less hostile public forum.

Hope you are well.
