NETBIOS -- Snort has flagged on traffic on the netbios protocol, which is used to share files across a local network.

Alert Message

NETBIOS SMB client NULL deref race condition attempt

Rule Explanation

Race condition in the SMB client implementation in Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 allows remote SMB servers and man-in-the-middle attackers to execute arbitrary code, and in the SMB client implementation in Windows Vista Gold, SP1, and SP2 and Server 2008 Gold and SP2 allows local users to gain privileges, via a crafted SMB Negotiate response, aka "SMB Client Race Condition Vulnerability."
