Wha??? There's a difference between exploitable and sniffable. RPC
doesn't use encryption, except for something Sun cooked up with DES. I
don't know the details.
Besides that, ssh has _way_ different uses than RPC. (of course, you could
write a remote shell kind of program using rpc, but why bother? No such
thing exists now, but ssh kicks ass.)
