nessus scan - epmap (135/tcp)

hi list,

some nessus scans have the following result:

Vulnerability found on port epmap (135/tcp)
 The remote host is running a version of Windows which has a flaw in
 its RPC interface which may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code
 and gain SYSTEM privileges. There is at least one Worm which is
 currently exploiting this vulnerability. Namely, the MsBlaster worm.

Solution: see http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS03-026.mspx
      Risk factor : High
      CVE : CAN-2003-0352
      BID : 8205
      Other references : IAVA:2003-A-0011
      Nessus ID : 11808



the microsoft link leads to a scanner which should show, if a system is patched or not:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827363/EN-US/

--> result: system is patched

is there a 3rd-party tool to test?
is nessus (2.2.9 ubuntu) state of the art?

thanks,
markus
