Description

The EAP-pwd server and peer implementation in hostapd and wpa_supplicant 1.0 through 2.4 does not validate that a message is long enough to contain the Total-Length field, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted message.

Solution(s)

  • alpine-linux-upgrade-hostapd
  • alpine-linux-upgrade-wpa_supplicant

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
