SMB/CIFS sessions leak in Windows Vista and in Windows Server 2008
When you run an application or service that accesses a remote Server Message Block (SMB)/Common Internet File System (CIFS) server, the number of CIFS sessions keeps increasing.
This issue occurs on a computer that is running one of the following operating systems:
- Windows Vista
- Windows Server 2008
When the resources are exhausted, the remote SMB/CIFS server does not respond to client requests.
