The remote Windows host has a wireless device driver that is prone to
a buffer overflow attack.
The Windows remote host contains a Broadcom wireless device driver.
The installed version of this driver on the remote host includes the
file 'bcmwl5.sys' that is reportedly affected by a stack-based
overflow vulnerability. An attacker within wireless range of the
affected host may be able to leverage this issue using a 802.11 probe
response with a long SSID field to execute arbitrary kernel-mode code
on the affected host.
