    We keep getting following warnings:

    We have been ignoring the warnings but now the frequency has increased.

    You should disable it. run this as root:
    Code:
    chkconfig portmap off

    Rcpbind relates to nfs , if not using nfs services disable it by
    systemctl disable rcpbind.service

    The package name in your command is incorrect. It's "rpcbind" instead of "rcpbind".

    Thanks!

    Just wanted to say THANK YOU!
    My mailbox kept getting spammed by CERT-Bund telling me the same as OP's description.

    I hope i won't hear from them again.

    Thank you again!
