I scanned a Windows Server 2003 by a NSS 5.0 with the latest update. It
reported that it has found two vulnerabilities, RPC.ypasswdd service
vulnerability and Samba buffer overflow.

According to CERT and Security Focus, they are more *IX based

What cause NSS identify these two vulnerabilites? How can I resolve this

Could someone please shed some light? Any pointers/comments are appreciated.
