RE: strange log entry
the same can be said with nfs and coda/samba (windows filesharing)they are
both easily exploitable codes simply by the way they operate. Basicaly in a
nutshell the code assume to much which makes it easily exploitable.

Not to start a thread discussing OSes, but ...
OpenBSD ships with rstatd and ruserd enabled by default and according to
"Four years without a remote hole in the default install!"
Which begs the question, especially since the *BSD's release their
sources under BSD style liscenses, why does rpc remain a security problem
in Linux? Is it the kernel? Is it the rpc code?
