Sid:
1271

--
Summary:
This event is generated when an attempt is made to probe a host for the
rusers RPC service.

--
Impact:

--
Detailed Information:
The rusers RPC service is used to remotely list all logged in users on a
machine. This information may be useful to an attacker when targeting a
remote host.

--
Affected Systems:
	All systems running the rusers RPC service
 
--
Attack Scenarios:
An attacker runs a vulnerability assessment tool, or the standard Unix
rusers command.  The attacker may use information gleaned from this to
better target his attacks.

--
Ease of Attack:
Simple. Tools to probe the rusers service come standard with most Unix variants.

--
False Positives:
None Known

--
False Negatives:
None Known

--
Corrective Action:
Disable the rusers service.

Disallow access to RPC services from hosts external to the protected
network
