When some of my students connect to the Noisebridge network, their terminals echo a different computer name. One was “victor-pc” and another was “myshiot-pc”. It looks like their WINS NetBIOS name is being set (according to Network settings in OS X).

Can anyone explain what’s going on here? Is this harmless?
