Good question, I don't know your configuration for your security. I have a hardware firewall, and am definitely in full stealth mode, and my security programs are set to not respond to pings, etc. None of my ports are even visible, so as far as a NetBIOS attack occurring, I don't even exist on the internet as far as a hacker is concerned.

Woohoo! I'm stealth! I love Steve Gibson, he always has fun stuff. But how hard is it to be stealth? A NAT router will do the trick. How are you connecting to the internet?
Admittedly, I have UPnP enabled on my router, so I guess I'm vulnerable from within.
+1 on a hardware firewall. Its not something you can do everywhere, especially for laptop users, but a decent Linksys does a good job in keeping the garbage out, where you can mainly focus on Web browsers as your point of weakness.
Even with attacks in the late 90s, it was considered unwise to have a workstation or server directly facing the Internet.
