Description Prasad J Pandit 2013-04-15 09:49:25 EDT
Linux kernels built with CIFS(CONFIG_CIFS) network file system support
are vulnerable to a NULL pointer dereference flaw. It could occur during a
reconnection attempt.

An unprivileged user/program could use this flaw to crash the system,
resulting in DoS.
