Symptoms

On a Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)-based or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1-based computer, you may experience one or more of the following issues:
Issue 1
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a device that is running Samba and that requires clear text share-level authentication by using a Samba account.
  • You try to access a network share on the device from the computer in a network environment.
  • You are prompted for authentication credentials.
  • You input the correct credentials within 10 seconds.
In this scenario, you cannot access the network share, and you are prompted for the authentication credentials again.

Note This issue does not occur if you take more than 10 seconds to input the authentication credentials.
Issue 2
The computer crashes randomly every week when the computer is performing Server Message Block (SMB) operations.

Cause

Cause of Issue 1
This issue occurs because Windows reuses an expired SMBCEDB_SESSION_ENTRY entry code.
Cause of Issue 2
This issue is caused by a NULL dereference situation.
