- --------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA 1280-1 Moritz Muehlenhoff
April 24th, 2007
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : aircrack-ng
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2007-2057

It was discovered that aircrack-ng, a WEP/WPA security analysis tool,
performs insufficient validation of 802.11 authentication packets, which
allows the execution of arbitrary code.

The oldstable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain aircrack-ng packages.

For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.6.2-7etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.7-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your aircrack-ng packages. Packages for
the arm, sparc and mipsen architectures are not yet available. They
will be provided later.
