Linux ReiserFS and SuSE 7.0

Author: JT Smith

From SecurityFocus: "A problem has been reported in the handling of long file names with
ReiserFS version 3.5.28 on SuSE Linux distribution 7.0. It is possible to
create a directory with a long file name (the initial example displayed a
directory with 768 characters), then attempt to list the file system using
system binary ls or with built in shell function echo and create a Denial
of Service."
