Microsoft Windows NT/2000 NetBIOS Name Conflict Vulnerability

An attacker can send the NetBIOS name service a NetBIOS Name Conflict message even when the receiving machine is not in the process of registering its NetBIOS name. The target will then not attempt to use that name in any future netwrok connection attempts. This can lead to intermittent connectivity problems, or the loss of all NetBIOS functionality.
