The smb_recv_trans2 function call in the samba filesystem (smbfs) in
Linux kernel 2.4 and 2.6 does not properly handle the re-assembly of
fragmented packets correctly, which could allow remote samba servers
to (1) read arbitrary kernel information or (2) raise a counter value
to an arbitrary number by sending the first part of the fragmented
packet multiple times.
