A bug in the remote operating system allows a local user to disable
the network functions of the remote host.
By default, Windows NT sets weak permissions on the Winsock mutex. A
local user without any privilege may abuse these permissions to lock
the mutex indefinitely and, therefore, disrupt the network operations of
the remote host.
