"In medical imaging, occasionally there are transfer syntax issues, especially when you connect an older modality to a newer viewing system.
This rule can be interpreted as follows: a connection that exploits the vulnerability described in MS04-11 report used the SMBD protocol on a TCP connection did not have a DCERPC interface and a transfer syntax identified, and tried to add an alternative computer name.
The resulting rule on the right can be interpreted as follows: a connection that exploits the vulnerability described in MS04-11 report used the SMBD protocol on a TCP connection, did not have a DCERPC interface identified, the identified transfer syntax was 8a885d04-1ceb-11c9-9fe8-08002b104860, and tried to run a call to change a permission of a domain server.
The right hand side branches can be interpreted as follows: an attacker exploiting the vulnerabilities described in MS08-67 used the SMBD protocol on a TCP connection with a DCERPC interface 4b324fc8-1670-01d3-1278-5a47bf6ee188 and a transfer syntax 8a885d04-1ceb-11c9-9fe8-08002b104860 using the SRVSVC service attempted a NetPathCanonicalize call to convert a path into a canonical name.
* Transfer syntax (attribute dcerpcbind_transfersyntax): 8a885d04-1ceb-11c9-9fe8-08002b104860;
* dce_opnum: 32,15: Information obtained after a research about the DCERPC interface, the transfer syntax, the service used, and the call to the service used [23].
The branches found inform the network administrator that the 4b324fc8-1670-01d3-1278-5a47bf6ee188 DCERPC interface is used by two different transfer syntaxes aimed at exploring the same vulnerabilities.
By explicitly defining abstract communication service and abstract transfer syntax, the X3 project expects to provide protocols that favor efficient and independent access to remote databases.
