To clarify this, the logging of the message does not indicate a
problem.  If the attack had succeeded, rpc.statd would have most likely
have crashed before it finished writing to the syslog (I think... don't
quote me on that).  It will certainly continue to log the attack in
this annoying manner.  Potato and woody are not vulnerable.
