Scientific Linux Security Update : wpa_supplicant on SL7.x x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A command injection flaw was found in the way the wpa_cli utility
executed action scripts. If wpa_cli was run in daemon mode to execute
an action script (specified using the -a command line option), and
wpa_supplicant was configured to connect to a P2P group, malicious P2P
group parameters could cause wpa_cli to execute arbitrary code.
