Microsoft Windows NT/2000 NetBIOS Release Vulnerability

An attacker can send the NetBIOS name service in a machine a NetBIOS Release message. That forces a receiving machine to place its name in conflict so that it will no longer be able to use it. This is the correct protocol behavior. MS's fix is to have a registry key that disables the NetBIOS name service from paying attention to these messages.
