RPC Endpoint Mapper can Cause RPC Service to Fail Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Acertains whether the hotfix Q305399 is installed
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The hotfix for the 'RPC Endpoint Mapper Service on NT 4 has not been applied'
problem has not been applied.
Because the endpoint mapper runs within the RPC service itself, exploiting this
vulnerability would cause the RPC service itself to fail, with the attendant loss
of any RPC-based services the server offers, as well as potential loss of some COM
functions. Normal service could be
restored by rebooting the server.
