How is this SMB share mounted on the Linux clients?

I'm asking because it is possible to do so in such a way that all users
on a Linux client machine have access to the SMB share with the
privileges of a given user. In fact that's how I've done it here. The
following is an entry in the /etc/fstab file on my laptop:

//fileserver.xperim.be/disk3	/mnt/disk3	cifs
 0  0

The file /root/.smbcredentials contains something like


So if you have done something like this it would explain why everyone
has access.
