Description

The eap_pwd_perform_confirm_exchange function in eap_peer/eap_pwd.c in wpa_supplicant 2.x before 2.6, when EAP-pwd is enabled in a network configuration profile, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash) via an EAP-pwd Confirm message followed by the Identity exchange.

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.
