Microsoft won't patch SMB flaw that only an idiot would expose

El

My experience with SMB was that malformed SMB packets could crash the login process, requiring rebooting the server. That was serveral years ago and it might be fixed now, but nobody in their right mind would accept any kind of SMB protocol packets from the internet!!! Every business should have some form of firewall that allows filtering on protocol type.
