HAHAHAHA :) Very funny. Seriously though, police can't remove access to
the system for individuals simply because they didn't turn off whatever MS
thing turns on port 445 by default... This gets back to the drivers'
license for internet access/computer use. A nice idea, not practical and
not enforcable :( And... not the solution to most of the problems.
Keep in mind that a majority of the attacks are NOT against 'high profile'
sites/customers... so many times a null route is a perfectly acceptable
