NetBIOS over the Internet

Impact

NETBIOS services were detected by the SARA scan. However, the SAMBA module was not loaded and an active scan of the SMB shares was not possible. This advisory is applicable to both UNIX and Microsoft Windows products.

The Problem

No actual vulnerability was detected because SARA could not find SAMBA resources.

Resolution

Where possible, NETBIOS services should be disabled. Where this is not possible, the system administrator should confirm that there are no open SMB shares.
