Fedora 7 : wpa_supplicant-0.5.7-3.fc7 (2007-0185)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the debugging code of Fedora's
version of wpa_supplicant. This can be triggered by those using
NetworkManager.

It is recommended that users of wpa_supplicant or NetworkManager
update to this package (and the accompanying NetworkManager packages)
which removes the affected debug code.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

wpa_supplicant-gui packages.
