its a service.. it runs over various tcp and udp ports.

e.g. 135-139 and 445 for windows  111 for solaris

here is the msft bulletin on this vuln. understand that many operating
systems use RPC, msfts has had more problems due to buffer overflows etc
lately relative to unix based systems.

Services, protocols, and ports are completely seperate things.  A
protocol is something like an IETF standard like http.  A service is the
software that operates under the protocol, like Apache.  The port is the
network port (TCP or UDP) that the service runs on, like port 80.

What is The RPC exactly  ?
The RPC  is a Protocol  or a winXP-win2000-Service or a Port?
www.Rabertgraham.com  says that it is a Protocol .
My windows says it is a Service .
Some other articles says that it is a Port .

And another questions :
www.Rabertgraham.com in its FireWall-FAQ  says these lines:

[""Various errors with :
Some servers are misconfigured to map this address.
On the other hand, it is also a hacker technique
to cause names within the hacker domain to resolve
to addresses within a company (including localhost/""]

And my question is :
How do they (Crackers) do that ?
