=======================================================================1) Word From Secunia:

Blog: Microsoft Windows SMB Response Denial of Service Clarifications

A PoC was published recently on Full-Disclosure, completely hanging an
up-to-date Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 system when an SMB
connection is established to a malicious server.

At first glance, and if trusting the reported cause of the
vulnerability, the PoC seems to send a full SMB packet in which the
size is four bytes smaller than expected.

Upon a more careful inspection, seemingly due to an error in the Python
script, it was noticed to send only four bytes to an affected system,
containing only the NetBIOS header, which defines the size of the
following SMB packet.
