Block remote EFSRPC functionality with RPC Filters

If Microsoft Encrypted File System Remote Protocol (MS-EFSRPC) is not required, administrators should block the remote EFSRPC functionality on the vulnerable host using RPC filters.

    1. Create a text file with the following content:
      rpc
      filter
      add rule layer=um actiontype=block
      add condition field=if_uuid matchtype=equal data=c681d488-d850-11d0-8c52-00c04fd90f7e
      add filter
      add rule layer=um actiontype=block
      add condition field=if_uuid matchtype=equal data=df1941c5-fe89-4e79-bf10-463657acf44d
      add filter
      quit
    2. Use the netsh command line utility to import the RPC filter from an elevated administrator prompt:
      netsh -f <FILTER_FILE_NAME>
    3. To confirm the filters are in place, you can view the current RPC filters using the following command:
      netsh rpc filter show filter
