Terrifying - NHS IT bods leave ports 445 and 139 open to the internet on firewalls?

My God, even my home hub doesn't does do anything as daft as that. No wonder everyone blamed some idiot clicking on a link in an phishing email - leaving vulnerable ports open like that is akin to having a door to the outside in an operating theatre and leaving it ajar so that the nurses can can pop in and out for a quick fag part way through surgery - all manner of nastys can just blow in off the street
