RPC message service?

A curious article:


It says that the Messenger Service Spammers are using port 135, which
means that they're not using regular WinPOPUP stuff (the <03> names on
port 139).  I do, in fact, see connect attempts to port 135 in my home
firewall logs.  (I think they should be called slimewalls.)

I'm guessing that they're doing something RPC-related that has, basically,
the same effect.  I'm just curious to know what it is...
