UDP Port 137

Common Use

Netbios Name Service is typically how Windows computers find out information concerning the networking features offered by a computer, such as System Name, File Shares, etc.

Inbound Scan

Inbound scans can be the result of everything from a harmless Reverse DNS lookup to a malicious scan for the availability of open shares to exploit.  Currently most inbound scans are the result of a number of worms such as BugBear and Opaserv which exploit open file shares to propagate.

Outbound Scan

Outbound scans if occurring in volume should be considered an indication of a possible worm infection on the source computer and should be investigated.
