Description

The WNM Sleep Mode code in wpa_supplicant 2.x before 2.6 does not properly ignore key data in response frames when management frame protection (MFP) was not negotiated, which allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary broadcast or multicast packets or cause a denial of service (ignored packets) via a WNM Sleep Mode response.

Solution(s)

  • suse-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.
