Exploited sunrpc 111 port
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
Some one has exploited my sunrpc 111 port to Hack some Collages through my
computer. I don't know what exploit they used, but they did a scan of
networks from my computer. Please help me resolve this problem.
Port 111 is provided by portmapper. Portmap is used by various (sometimes
insecure) services. There have been several problems with some of these.
On an average workstation, portmap and associated services don't need to be
running. Please disable them (e.g. 'chkconfig portmap off')
