The problem is far more general then within single poor configuration
defaults in telnet.exe.
The main problem is that Windows automatically supply user credentials in
many situations without ever asking for his opinion.
  For example, the following html file:

 <meta http-equiv="refresh"

will automatically connect to evil site thru netbios and supply user
password hashes.
Putting malicious site into 'Restricted Zone' doesn't helps.

That's why, exactly, you do not pass NetBIOS through your firewall -
incoming as well as _outgoing_ traffic.

Kind regards
