Not that I know of - you could start playing real silly buggers with the
IPC$ share name, (set guest ok = no on that share) but there is nothing

Samba 3.0 adds the ability to easily restrict such access, as detailed
in Samba 2.2.  

If your security policy is based on 'what the scanner told me' then it's
a pretty sad 'security' policy...  (If the box is not a DC, it has not
got that much information to give away, even if it wanted to)

Why not add a hosts deny for the host scanning you? ;-)
