    Was this vulnerability posted in these forums? It was patched a few weeks back. This looks like worm exploit material.The inbuilt windows firewall did not block this packet.

    Take away for me from this is:
    1) Keep your windows updated.
    2) Built-in windows firewall may not be as effective as a router or third-party firewall even for inbound protection.
