remote code execution vulnerability.

Description :

vulnerability in the Wi-Fi component due to improper validation of
unspecified input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker within Wi-Fi
range can exploit this to cause a stack-based buffer overflow,
resulting in a denial of service condition or potentially allowing the
execution of arbitrary code.
