SMB o death thing

Anyone wondering whether the SMB of death, or whatever cute name it got, is a thing? The proof of concept code released has two parts:

"Win10" will BSOD any Windows machine that can be persuaded to browse to \\waiting.ip.address.

The second: LSSAS can be sent to a machine and from my testing will BSOD a fully patched WinXP. I haven't tried anything else.

I certainly have not tried the LSSAS thing against a system that nmap told me was probably WinXP and was persistently attempting AUTH against my SMTP daemon, ie a bot of some sort. That would be naughty.
