You would think, looking at the exploit and the pcap (72 6f 6f 74) would
have clued me in. To save some face, I was talking about the ummm
metasploit plugin in particular... ;p

Frank is, unfortunately, correct.


A better workaround imo, check the date and status of your last full
backups, disable all Remote Agent for Windows services.
