of their choosing.

If the Windows registry is accessible via SMB the attacker can
manipulate the operating system registry settings.

Ease of Attack:
Simple.

--
False Positives:
None known.

--
False Negatives:

--
Corrective Action:
Check the host for signs of system compromise.

Turn off file and print sharing on the target host.

Use a packet filtering firewall to disallow SMB access to the host from
sources external to the protected network.

Disallow remote registry manipulation.
