Multiple buffer overflows in the cifs subsystem in the Linux kernel
before 184.108.40.206 allow remote CIFS servers to cause a denial of service
(memory corruption) and possibly have unspecified other impact via (1)
a malformed Unicode string, related to Unicode string area alignment
in fs/cifs/sess.c; or (2) long Unicode characters, related to
fs/cifs/cifssmb.c and the cifs_readdir function in fs/cifs/readdir.c.
