Hi James-

The Snort inline guys might have more details, but as far as
I know, the pieces of the fragmented data are forwarded as they
are received by Snort, however the one that completes the fragmented
data and causes Frag3 to push the reassembled version through the
rest of the preprocessors and rules should be blocked -- assuming
that the rule that it matched is a drop rule.

We do not buffer fragments and send them all out after the fragment
is completed -- that would be a lead to a DoS opportunity within
