This was written from the view point of windows AD setup can affect home users 
too since MS makes people use MS live accounts to log in to windows. 

Outside servers can get username/domain/password hash. Once a remote server has 
the login info they could connect to VPN, Office365 or an other service that 
using AD domain user info. 
See attachment for example. I got the example from a VM with a test account on 

Microsoft based browsers like IE and Edge can be induced to make a outbound smb 
connection to a remote server. In this connection Microsoft will send over 
username, domain, and password hash. The remote server then can do a decryption 
of the password hash using brute force, password, dictionary and rainbow 

The fastest way to stop this is to block all of the smb networks ports on the 
edge firewall for incoming and outgoing. The ports are 137-138udp, 
137tcp,139tcp, 445tcp
