Windows 7 and Vista crash via SMB exploit

Here is where I first saw the exploit: http://hackaday.com/2009/09/09/windows-7-and-vista-crash-via-smb-exploit/

Microsoft’s release, with helpful information on what it is and how to fix it, is here: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/975497.mspx

Test if your computer is affected here: http://sinisterware.blogspot.com/2009/09/smb-check.html

SMB: Server Message Block Only computers with SMB 2.0 are affected.

This vulnerability can lead to to remote code execution, which is not good. If you are lucky, you only get BSODed.
