[Snort-sigs] RPC Portmap Request

Okay, so you received an Impact Flag one, which tells me you are running

So, you have the Operating System in question, the port is open, the service
on the port is correct, and the service is potentially vulnerable to this
condition (the makings of an impact 1), so, this is someone external to your
network attempted to connect to the ttdbserv on port 111 on your network.

Is the external network a known IP?  Is that IP authorized to connect to the
destination IP (HOME_NET) in question?  Or is it a random connection out
there on the internet?

Do you have a business need to have port 111 open from the internet to your
servers?  I'd probably start by blocking the ports.
