Certainly not, an alert, or thousands of these do not mean it is a true
positive. A good idea would be to check wether these are false or true
I guess you checked your worksations and servers against nimda and/or
this richedXX.dll file, you sniffed your netbios traffic to know exactly
what happens ?
If you did all this, you already have the answer.
