All the known variants of those two are hardcoded to port 80.  Unless
you've got some kind of SSL accelerator that automatically forwards
attempts to port 80 to 443 and does SSL on their behalf (and that is
possible to do..) then that's not the problem.

Shouldn't matter even if they did.... why would that crash your servers?
