NetBIOS Name Service Reply Information Leakage

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tests the NetBT NS mem disclosure

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is running a version of the NetBT name service which
suffers from a memory disclosure problem.

A possible hacker may send a special packet to the remote NetBT name
service, and the reply will contain random arbitrary data from the
remote host memory. This arbitrary data may be a fragment from the
web page the remote user is viewing, or something more serious like a
POP password or anything else.

A possible hacker may use this flaw to continuously 'poll' the content of
the memory of the remote host and might be able to obtain sensitive
information.
