what is meaning of EPMAP blocked port 135
This evening I had continuous attacks reported by Norton as: rule default block EPMAP blocked 10.0.0.4 port dcom 135 inbound TCP connection.
1.) Could someone please explain the nature of this type of attack or point me to online link for more details
2.) The attacks took began at 6:pmET until the present which is 9:15pm in case it is of importance to those who track or anyone who had similar experience
3.) Years ago, Norton provided a map that showed visually where attacks originated. (I've had Norton for over a decade.) Can I do the same thing now through NOrton or some other tool?
4.) Is there anything I can do to discourage the continuation of these attacks or is it simply my role to endure them until the attack is through with their wargames?????
Thanks for all assistance.
