FYI, those concerned:
Highly Critical Windows Explorer / Internet Explorer Long Share Name
NOTE: Secunia would normally rate this kind of vulnerability as
"Moderately critical", since this kind of traffic should be restricted
to a LAN via border routers and firewalls. However, this is not the case
on many networks, which leads to the higher rating.
Restrict traffic in border routers and firewalls.
Disable "Client for Microsoft Networks" for network cards. This will
impact file sharing functionality.
