    Updated my Norton Firewall last night. Since then, I've received almost 1000 notifications of IP addresses that sent information that is characteristic of an MS_RPC_DCON_HEAP_BO attack or MS_RPC_DCON_Buffer_Overflow attack. Included in this list appears to be my own IP address also.

    If someone can advice me what MS_RPC_DCON_HEAP_BO attack or MS_RPC_DCON_Buffer_Overflow attack is, it will help me determine what to do about it.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm running Windows XP.
    No Virus's on system
    Up to date on all Windows Updates


    I'm needing to know what these letters stand for:
    MS_RPC_DCON_HEAP_BO & MS_RPC_DCON_Buffer_Overflow

    Thank You
