"Microsoft has warned of a vulnerability affecting Windows 2000 and XP systems and that is especially bad news for NT 4.
Labelled 'important' this vulnerability was discovered in the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Endpoint Mapper protocol, which could allow denial of service (DoS) attacks to be carried out against systems."

Now, all I want to say is this sucks. Big time ! I mean, I am so [censored] filled up with this [censored]. There is at least one MAJOR, IMPORTANT, CRITICAL, SERIOUS vulnerability coming out for Windows every week. And now they can't even make the patch for NT 4 ? What the [censored] is wrong with them ?
And then they say ...
"This vulnerability only permits a DoS attack and does not provide an attacker with the ability to modify or retrieve data on the remote machine,"
