AAAAAAAAAA! You'll scream when you see how easy it is to pwn unpatched HPE servers

MS did it with NT too

"There are several DoS attacks involving a simple telnet client that can be used against an NT server.

First, by telnetting to port 53, 135, or 1031, and then typing in about 10 or so characters and hitting enter will cause problems. If DNS (port 53) is running, DNS will stop. If 135 answers, the CPU utilization will increase to 100%, slowing performance. And if port 1031 is hit, IIS will get knocked down. Typically the fix is to reboot the server, as it will be hung or so slow as to render it useless." [c/o NMRC.org]

Been there, done that, laughed during the ensuing chaos :)
