We are currently testing Vista Ultimate RTM version on our network and when
we scan it with our QualysGuard security scanner it's coming up with some
older vulnerabilities that I have listed below.  I'm just curious as to
whether these are real vulnerabilities, or if it is misreporting these for
some reason.  If they are real I was wondering if there are any links to
solutions for them.

Vulnerabilities Listed in Security Scan
Microsoft Windows 9x File Handle Buffer Overflow Vulnerability
Microsoft Windows 9x NetBIOS NULL Name Vulnerability
Microsoft Windows 9x/NT/2000 MS-DOS Device Name DoS Vulnerability
Web Server Reveals Absolute Path
Disabled SMB Signing
UDP Test-Services Running

Thanks for any help or direction to someone else who can help
